Goa vs NorthEast Utd Preview
Match 12 in the Indian Super League sees FC Goa taking on NorthEast United in an eagerly awaited clash.
Goa haven't really got themselves going in this season's ISL. They fought back from 2-0 down against Bengaluru to gain a 2-2 draw in their opening match.
While in their second match, they fought gallantly with 10 men against Mumbai City, before finally succumbing to a late penalty, losing 1-0.
NorthEast have had a far better start to their campaign.
They beat 10 man Mumbai 1-0 in their opening match, and followed that up with a 2-2 draw against Kerala Blasters.
The draw with Kerala must have felt more like a victory, as United were 2-0 down at half time, and fought back for an unlikely draw.
That will surely give them plenty of belief to take into this match.

Goa vs NorthEast Utd Prediction 30/11/20
Despite being at opposite ends of the table, the odds favour second bottom Goa.
I can understand why Goa are favourites, but I also have enough reservations about backing them to win.
With this in mind, and given that both sides have goals in them, I'm going with over 2.5 goals for my prediction. The bet is not far off evens, and looks good value to me.
I see two pretty evenly matched teams, and I can see this finishing 2-1 to either side.
