Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar told reporters on Tuesday that all agencies have been asked to take precautions to avoid last minute mobbing as well as ensure proper regulation of crowds during the match, scheduled at Nehru Stadium Fatorda.

“We have also decided to put two big screens outside the stadium, so that those who don’t get the ticket can watch it there,” Parsekar said. Police had resorted to a mild lathi charge yesterday after fans went berserk after tickets got sold out and a few hoardings were burnt by them.
“Some people who could not get tickets were upset. We have made sure that the law and order situation will not arise tomorrow. The semi-finals scheduled tomorrow are very crucial as it will decide the second finalist for the coveted ISL title,” the chief minister added.
