    Goal M. Dudu

  • Nine minutes to kick-off between Salgaocar and Lajong here. What are your predictions?
  • Guess what! A 10-man Mohammedan Sporting have scored the third goal against Sporting Clube de Goa. The score in Kolkata is 3-1 in the 83rd minute.
  • Meanwhile, it's still 2-1 between Mohammedan Sporting and Sporting Clube de Goa in Kolkata, with the home team - who are the only side to beat Sporting in Goa - leading against the Goans.

  • Lajong are coming into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw against United Sports Club in Kolkata. The north eastern brigade will look to rely on the likes of Cornell Glen, Uilliams Silva and Durga Boro for goals
  • The Green and Whites have hit form since the resumption of the I-League with two identical 1-0 victories over Mohun Bagan (home) and Mohammedan Sporting (away) with goals from new recruit Dudu Omagbemi
  • The two teams are tied on 24 points each from 16 matches but Lajong are ahead on the table having beaten the Greens 2-1 in an earlier I-League match
  • Salgaocar FC lost 4-0 to Shillong Lajong at the Federation Cup last month and coach Derrick Pereira will hope that his side avenge their thrashing
  • The Goans hope to ride on Omagbemi magic. Do you recognise the Nigerian who stared for Sporting Clube de Goa almost a decade ago?
