5:45 p.m .: Podcast – The fusion between ATK and Mohun Bagan for ISL 2020-21 seemed like a heavenly game, but the fans didn’t look happy. Our reporters Shyam Vasudevan, Aashin Prasad and Amitabha Das Sharma deal in the latest episode of ‘The Full Time Show’ with the reasons for the displeasure of the fans and the angry hashtag #RemoveATK.

The seventh edition of the Indian Super League started on November 20th in a bio-bubble in Goa.

During the four-month tournament, eleven teams will play against each other in a league and playoff format at three venues. After the inclusion of SC East Bengal, 115 games will be played this season, up from 95 last season.

FC Goa will face a resurgent SC East Bengal in an ISL game on Friday at Fatorda Stadium. After playing a 1-1 draw with a 10-man East Bengal player in the first phase of the tournament, Goa has to do an inspired performance to get better in the second leg.

The task will be a challenge for the hosts as she will do without key center-backs Ivan Gonzalez and James Donachie. Gonzalez is suspended because of the red card he received in the 1-1 draw with Kerala Blasters. Donachie hobbled away in the middle of the game in the same game and is likely to be disfellowshipped. Goa will also have to do without its coach Juan Ferrando, who received the suspension in the bruising competition with Kerala. « The most important thing about this team at this time (unbeaten run) is the adaptation to the new style of the coach, » said the Goa FC assistant coach and former Indian player Clifford Miranda has won three times in the last six games over his side’s undefeated run. « We are moving step by step on our head coach’s journey towards our goal, » he added.

The standout event at the last meeting of the two teams was the world-class solo motor from Bright Enobakhare from East Bengal. The young Nigerian striker has been a key man in East Bengal’s line-up since then. “He’s a good player, there is no doubt about that, and he has helped SC East Bengal improve since we arrived. But there is no such plan to stop a player because if we focus on them there are nine other outfield players who can hurt us. We’ll play the way we play, « said Miranda.

East Bengal, who lost 1-0 in their last game against current leaders Mumbai City FC after seven unbeaten games, are looking to take a point from the Goa team . Despite losing to Mumbai City, East Bengal fought well and stayed in the game until the end. This is the point that will inspire the visitor.

« It’s certainly an opportunity to get back to winning ways, » said former Everton and Manchester City midfielder Tony Grant, now Liverpool legend and head coach Robbie Fowler supports. « We lost our captain (Danny Fox) early this season. » and it hurt us. It will hurt any team that is missing two of its better players, « said Grant, looking at the possible absences on the Goa team.

It will be interesting when Goa puts on Indian defender Adil Khan, who recently dated from Hyderabad FC on loan, while East Bengal has former Indian goalkeeper Subrata Paul, also on loan from Hyderabad, who returns to the red and gold squad after a 12-year break.
