All roads lead to the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa, on Sunday, 20 December, when the grand finale of the Indian Super League 2015 is scheduled to take place. The anticipation among the fans, players, coaches, and everyone, is at an all-time high, and the excitement has reached the highest level.
FC Goa take on Chennaiyin FC in the ISL 2015 final.
The second season of the Indian Super League stepped up a level higher than the last season and the most striking part this time has been the amount of goals scored. The teams featuring in the final know all about it.
While FC Goa have slotted in 32 goals from 16 matches in the season so far, Chennaiyin FC have popped in 29 goals so far. Stiven Mendoza remains the favourite to bag the Golden Boot this time as the Colombian has just been supreme with his performances in the ISL 2015. The Chennaiyin FC forward has 13 goals so far, and has no real competition in sight.
The defence, the midfield, and the attack have combined brilliantly for both teams this season, and this makes the prospect of seeing a mouthwatering ISL 2015 final more realistic. The battle of the managerial minds also pits Marco Materazzi (coach, Chennaiyin FC), a World Cup winning defender, against Brazil legend Zico (coach, FC Goa), one of the greatest footballers of all time.
In every single department, be it Zico vs Materazzi, or Mendoza vs Lucio, or Elano vs Leo Moura, the action is unmissable by all means.
Even Bollywood celebrities have come together to urge the Indian football fans not to miss the game on Sunday, as we anticipate the game to go down as one of the best Indian football matches of the calendar year 2015.
