ATK Mohun Bagan will be looking to bounce back with a win when they take on FC Goa today evening. The Mariners lost to Mumbai City FC in their last game and will be looking to get one up on the Gaurs, who they have already beaten once this season.
However, FC Goa are unbeaten in their last four games and a win on Sunday will take them above ATKMB in the ISL standings. The Mariners have been defensively solid, with Arindam Bhattacharja keeping seven clean sheets so far. On the opposite end, however, the team from Calcutta have been rather goal-shy, having netted just 10 goals until now.
Meanwhile, the Gaurs have settled in nicely after a slow start to their season. Their attack has scored 13 of their 16 goals from open play this season, but they will have to work hard to break down a defence that has conceded just four goals until now.
