FC Goa kept their slim playoff hopes alive with a five-star performance against Chennaiyin FC whose aspirations of a top-four spot were dealt a heavy blow, as they were humbled 5-nil in the Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Wednesday.
Goa ended a five-game losing streak to return to form in the best possible way, accumulating 18 points from 16 games and improving their goal differential significantly.
They remained in ninth place. It was Chennaiyin’s second consecutive loss, leaving the former champions with 19 points from 16 games and eighth place in the points table.

The last time FC Goa won a match this season was on January 8, when they defeated Chennaiyin 1-0.
