FC Goa look for their first ISL 2021-22 win against SC East Bengal - get fantasy predictions
Bottom-dwellers FC Goa (FCG) take on SC East Bengal (SCEB) in match 21 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at Tilak Maidan on Tuesday, December 7. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
SCEB vs FCG Dream11 prediction
FC Goa and East Bengal are the only teams yet to register a win this season. The teams have scored a mere seven goals combined and are defensively frail. Although the likely outcome on Tuesday is expected to be a draw, we predict FC Goa to exploit SCEB’s defensive weaknesses and get their first win of the season.
Meanwhile, FC Goa vs East Bengal head-to-head record is evenly stacked with both of their meetings in the past ending without a winner. Their first meeting came on January 6, 2021, where goals from Bright Enobakhare and Devendra Murgaonkar forced the teams to a 1-1 draw. Their next meeting ended with the same result and scoreline.
SCEB vs FC Goa Dream11 team tips for ISL 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
FC Goa forward Jorge Ortiz Mendoza has been a delight for fantasy players. The 29-year-old Spaniard has accumulated 93 fantasy points from three matches while making it to the Dream Team on one occasion. Given SCEB’s defensive struggles, Mendoza will be an outright threat on Tuesday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Despite failing to score a goal so far, Mohammad Rafique has accrued 124 fantasy points from his four outings. His perfectly-timed tackles coupled with his constant interceptions has made him an asset for fantasy players and based on his performance so far, it seems as though it’s just a matter of time before starts notching some more goal and assist contributions.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
SCEB full-back Hira Mondal has made quite an impact this season. The 25-year-old left-back has accumulated 73 fantasy points from three outings and has made it to the Dream Team on all three occasions. Hence, it comes as no surprise that 76.82 per cent of fantasy players have decided to put their faith in him.
For a goalkeeper, SCEB stopper Suvam Sen should be picked ahead of FC Goa’s Dheeraj Singh solely on the back of his recent performances. The 32-year-old keeper has accumulated 77 fantasy points from three matches and has been named in the Dream Team in all of those outings.
SCEB vs FCG probable playing XI
SCEB playing XI (probable): Suvam Sen (goalkeeper); Joyner Lourenco, Raju Gaikwad, Franjo Prce (captain), Hira Mondal; Naorem Mahesh Singh, Mohammad Rafique, Amir Dervisevic, Bikash Jairu; Antonio Perosevic, Darren Sidoel
