With 30 points from 15 matches, Goa moved three points clear at the top of the table. Odisha's playoff hopes took a hit and they remain fourth with 21 points. With games in hand, the likes of Mumbai City FC and Chennaiyin FC now have a chance to overtake Odisha.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a goal against Torina in the Serie A 2019-20 tie in the Coppa Italia 2019-20 tie. The goal was scored in the last few added minutes of the game.

Zinedine Zidane will have on eye on this weekend’s Madrid derby when he selects his starting eleven for this contest. Youngsters Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior will flank Luka Jovic in the attacking third while Federico Valverde is also expected to make a comeback in the starting eleven. Sergio Ramos could be rested for the tie.
Many of the first team West Ham United stars will miss the Liverpool game due to injuries and they include the likes of Robert Snodgrass, Felipe Anderson, Lukasz Fabianski and Andriy Yarmolenko. Declan Rice and Mark Noble in midfield are the kinds of players tailormade for games like this with their high work rate and passing abilities. Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals are the conventional wingers and they will look to set up Sebastien Haller in the attack.
Manchester United and Manchester City will play an exciting game of Carabao Cup 2019-20 at the Emirates Stadium. Now ahead of the game, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea spotted Sergio Aguero at a restaurant and the Spaniard stuck out his middle finger and showed it to the striker. Of course, that was in good humour.
Aymeric Laporte and Joao Cancelo are not fully fit heading into the contest hence Pep Guardiola may keep the duo out of the matchday squad. Bernardo Silva scored in the first leg and is expected to start alongside the experienced duo of Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero. Pulling the strings in midfield will be playmaker Kevin de Bruyne.
In seven matches on the road, FC Goa have won three, drawn two and lost the other two. Both of those two defeats against table leaders ATK and Bengaluru FC have come in their previous two games. Goa coach Sergio Lobera will hope to end this dry run on the road with a win against Odisha, who they thrashed 3-0 at home in an earlier meeting.
French defender Aymeric Laporte may not feature in this match as he returned to action against Sheffield United in the previous week but did not take part in the FA Cup tie against Fulham. Claudio Bravo will continue in goal for the defending champions as he has done in all the cup games while Leroy Sane still remains a long-term absentee.
United need a miracle to reach the finals as they lost the first leg 3-1 and since then the performances haven’t been convincing enough from the record English champions. Meanwhile, Manchester City have been almost perfect in recent times, apart from a blip against Crystal Palace, Pep Guardiola’s men have slotted six past Aston Villa and four past Fulham.
In six matches at home, Odisha FC have won four and drew and lost one each from the other two. All of their four wins have come in their last four home matches in which Josep Gombau’s side have scored nine times. Their only home defeat came against Bengaluru, who completed a league double over Odisha with a 3-0 win last win.
The match ran into overtime, and Calhanoglu scored again at the 106th minute. Two minutes later, teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic cinched Milan's victory with a fourth goal. "This was an important win for us, also because of the way it came - we were down by 2-1 but we were able to believe in ourselves to the end," Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli said.
Fernandes had been heavily linked to United since June last year and was offered to the club in the 2019-20 summer transfer window but Old Trafford heads backed off while Tottenham Hotspur also refused to pay the asking price. United returned in January with significant interests and almost sealed the deal before Sporting CP increased the asking price for their club captain.
