  • The race for the top spot in the 2019-’20 Indian Super League heated up as FC Goa defeated NorthEast United FC 2-0 to celebrate their 100th ISL match in style.
  • The hosts were dominant in possession and created plenty of chances to score against a deep-lying defence but lacked the killer instinct in front of goal. A Mislav Komorski (68’) own-goal finally allowed Goa to take the lead before Jose Leudo conceded a penalty to allow Ferran Corominas (82’) to score what was his 49th goal in the ISL.
  • Goa’s seventh win of the season has helped them onto the top of the table with 24 points from 12 matches. NorthEast are eighth with 11 points from 10 matches.
