THE CONFIDENT MARINERS NEEDS WIN AGAINST SPORTING GOA
The I-league is approaching towards a dramatic end as the League leaders Mohun Bagan will going to clash against the Goan outfit Sporting Clube in away on 16th May 2015 at Fatorda, Goa.
Mohun Bagan are currently placed at the top of the I-League table with 32 points from 16 matches while Bangaluru FC, the defending champions are also on 32 points from 17 matches. But in the first round match at Kolkata, Mohun Bagan out railed Bangaluru FC by a convincing margin of 4-1 and thus leading the I League table.
Sporting Clube are an unpredictable team in Indian football placed at the bottom of the I League table with 14 points from 16 matches are desperate to earn points against Mohun Bagan. Sporting Clube are on the threshold of relegation can be a cause of concern for the Mariners. The Sporting striking force will be lead by the Nigerian striker Odafa Okilie, who has the capability to change the course of a match by his individual brilliance.
It is a must win situation for Mohun Bagan in order to advance further to achieve their ultimate goal. The Mariners rely primarily on Sony Nordi in the upfront, while Piea Bioa will marshal in the midfield. But Sanjay Sen's main target is to restrict the dangerous Odafa Okilie who can make the difference between the two outfits.
Undoubtedly the match between Mohun Bagan and Sporting Clube will rise to a great height on Saturday evening. As Mohun Bagan's target is to advance towards the tittle, while Sporting Clube needs points which will ultimately save them from the relegation.
