FC Goa's Leo Moura [R] has been one of the most instrumental players of the ISL so farISL website

All eyes will be on Chennaiyin FC as they take on FC Goa in the 30th match of the Indian Super League this season. The 'Super Machans' are unbeaten in their previous two games, while Goa have remained victory-less in their previous two games.

However, Zico's side still lead Chennaiyin FC by a point, and a victory on 5 November can take FC Goa to the top of the table once again. The home side will be counting on their previous home win to try and look for all the three points.

Both the teams have certain players who can change the complexion of the game at any point, and IBTimes looks at one foreign player and one Indian player from each team who can make a mark in today's game:

Chennaiyin FC

Stiven Mendoza - The short-statured Colombian forward has some unfinished business. He has failed on many occasions to score in his team's previous game, and Mendoza will be hoping to make a turnaround by getting back his goalscoring boots in today's game. His link-up with Elano has been vital for Chennaiyin FC this season, and that partnership may bring the spotlight back to the team once again after the game.

Mehrajuddin Wadoo - It seems like the ex-India international has found a new life of sorts in the ISL this season. The 31-year-old Srinangar defensive rock's strength has catapulted under Marco Materazzi, and his tackling abilities have increased manifold. Almost confirmed a berth in the full-back role, Mehrajuddin is a big threat for any forward willing to make penetrative runs inside the opposition box.

FC Goa

Leo Moura - The former Flamengo star is slowly turning out to be one of the best midfielders in the ISL this season. Moura's penetrative balls and the elan with which he connects the defence with the attack is a spectacle in itself. He has one assist in the ISL so far, but that doesn't say anything. When FC Goa are playing, he is the man who orchestrates the play and creates all the scoring opportunities for his attacking mates.

Debabrata Roy - The Indian defender has found himself a vital part of Zico's plans in ths season of the ISL, and Debabrata has really lived up to his role as the fullback. The former I-League winner with Dempo has been a key presence in the defence and he has gelled along well with the likes of Lucio and Gregory Arnolin. Debabrata has also used his pace by making incisive runs along the wing and delivering long balls and crosses.
