Vasco SC Take On SCC Cavelossim In GPL Encounter

Friday, 17 November 2017|Media Release

Vasco Sports Club will be looking to continue their form from the last match victory against Guardian Angel SC when they will take on Santa Cruz Club of Cavelossim at Duler Football Stadium on Saturday.

On the other hand, Cavelossim who went down to Corps of Signals in the last match will be looking to for at least a point from the match as they had lost three out of four matches played. Their only win came against I-League side Churchill Brother in the last month.

Vasco coach Eban Mesquita has all the players at his disposal except for the experienced centre defender Micky Fernandes who is most likely to miss the clash due to a minor injury. However, the gaffer is most likely to go with the same playing XI which earned his first victory of the season.

“We are expecting a tough fight tomorrow. I am aware that it is not going to be easy but my boys will give their 100% in the practice sessions and that will help them tomorrow to snatch all three points from the opponents.” Vasco gaffer Mesquita said.

Cavelossim coach Severino Fernandes has been experimenting with the starting XI in every match but players like Goalkeeper Siddesh Morje, midfielders Moises D’Sa, Alwyn Vaz are regular starters for the South Goan club but few changes can be expected in the starting XI when they will take on the Port Towners.

Though Cavelossim has an advantage in head-to-head as the South Goan club had won both, home and away clashes in the last season but this season it will be very tough for Cavelossim to beat the rejuvenated Vasco side especially when Nigerian forward John Nuanna and Guinean midfielder Vassesa Toure who scored two goals in the last match, will boost Vasco’s attacking.
