FC Goa faced an unexpected setback on their home turf with a defeat against Mohun Bagan, serving as an early wake-up call for the Gaurs as they aspire to contend for the ISL Shield. Eager to reclaim momentum, Goa targets a crucial three points against Guwahati-based opponents known for their struggles away from home. However, the absence of defensive stalwart Sandesh Jhingan poses challenges, leaving Goa vulnerable to defensive lapses in the upcoming fixture.

Meanwhile, NorthEast United grapples with inconsistent performances this season, particularly struggling in away matches. Their recent 4-2 defeat to Mohun Bagan in Kolkata exemplifies their challenges. A loss to Goa could exacerbate their issues, hindering their prospects of securing a top-six position. Manager Juan Pedro Benali seeks a positive outcome against formidable opposition away from home.

Injury concerns persist for both sides. FC Goa continues to miss the influential presence of Sandesh Jhingan due to a significant knee injury sustained during the AFC Asian Cup 2023.

For NorthEast United, Tomi Juric's ankle knock from the previous encounter against Mohun Bagan casts doubt on his availability for the upcoming match. Despite this, the rest of the squad remains fully fit for the fixture.
