Current Kingfisher Goa Pro League leaders Santa Cruz club of Cavelossim and 2nd place Vasco sports club will both be in action on Sunday hoping to continue the successful start to the season, before the big four return from the Federation cup hungry to make up lost ground.
Cavelossim will face Sesa football academy at Tilak Maidan, Vasco, while Vasco sports club and Goa Velha will lock horns at Raia ground at 4p.m.
Cavelossim won their opening two matches convincingly against Calangute and Margao sports club, but slipped up in their last match losing 0-1 to Vasco sports club and will be looking to make amends and add to their six points when they take the field against Sesa.
Sesa, having lost their opening match against Sporting Clube de Goa have since drawn their last two matches 0-0 against Vasco sports and Calangute to leave them with 2 points from three matches. Although they have kept clean sheets in their last two matches, they have also not been able to find the back of the net in the last 180 minutes of play which will be of great concern to Sesa coach Clifford Chukwuma.
Vasco are one of only three teams still unbeaten in this season’s league after defeating Cavelossim and drawing with Sesa and Margao to leave them with five points. Bottom place Goa Velha are in serious need of a win having only one point from three games after a draw with Sporting and lost to Calangute and Dempo earlier.
