With three of their players suspended after a half0-time brawl during their quarter-final against Jamshedpur FC, Goa will have their task cut out against the red and gold brigade tomorrow.
Seriton Fernandes and Narayan Das will start in their full back positions. With India international Pranoy Halder picking up a second yellow in consecutive games, he along with Hugo Boumous will also miss the semi-finals. In his absence, Pratesh Shirodkar will take the field along side Edu Bedia.
The Gaurs have a few problems in front with Brandon Fernandes and Hugo Boumous missing this game. Manvir Singh and Anthony D'souza will most likely replace the suspended players with Mandar Rao Desai playing on wide left.
Ferran Corominas is expected to fill in the attacking midfield position and Manvir will take his place upfront.
Considering the absence of a number of key players for this tie, the Gaurs will have a lot of work to do against an organized and effective unit in East Bengal.
This promises to be an exciting tie with the winner progressing to the final of the Hero Super Cup.
