ISL 2018 NorthEast United FC vs FC Goa: As the two Indian Super League teams get ready to lock horns on Day 3 of the tournament, owner of the North East United team John Abraham has wished his team in a video post. He has also promised that Hima Das would be there at the Fan Parks. Here is the post from North East United and it read, “John Abraham along with Hima Das will be with us at the Fan Park and the game tomorrow! Lucky winners of the fan contests get an opportunity to meet them too! Looking forward to seeing all of you in the stands for our opener against FC Goa!”

The match will take place at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati.

New head coach Eelco Schattorie will be hoping to get off to a good start with his new-look team and create history at the end of the season by entering the playoffs for the first time ever.

Meanwhile, the Gaurs have retained most of their squad who made a huge impact in the league in 2017-18, alongside head coach Sergio Lobera, who would be vying for the ultimate trophy in his second season with Goa.

For four successive years, NorthEast United FC has tried but failed to win a place in the playoffs. The two teams have locked horn twice and NorthEast FC has won one and drawn another.
