  • STAT: Dempo's overall win rate this season (52.60%) has been better than that of Sporting (35.00%).
  • STAT: Both teams have recorded 59 goals in their respective matches of this term's I-League, with Dempo SC having scored 38 goals as compared to Sporting's 27.
  • STAT: Dempo SC have won all of their last five matches against Sporting Clube de Goa.
  • Can the Flaming Oranje gather full points against their state rivals?
  • Sporting, who are now eighth in the standings with 26 points from 20 games, also have the opportunity of breaking into the top half of the table if they manage to a point or three against the Goan rivals.
  • For a side who have experienced a dismal start to their I-League season, four consecutive wins could be quite comforting for Sporting Clube de Goa at the current stage of the competition when every point makes a big difference.
  • The Golden Eagles have also dropped points against some of the weaker sides in the league as they have managed to gather 35 points from 10 wins and five draws, having played 19 matches so far.
  • Dempo SC have won only one of their six matches in the New Year, which could be one of the reasons why they are lagging behind in the title race this season.
  • Armando Colaco's side have fallen considerably behind in the quest for the top honours. Can the defending champions revive their title hopes?
  • It's a battle between the two Panjim-based sides today and I'm Anselm Noronha, at the Duler stadium in Goa...
  • "Namaste" and welcome to the Goan derby match between Dempo Sports Club and Sporting Clube de Goa...
