Namdhari Football Club vs. Gokulam Kerala FC: Winning Prediction

Gokulam Kerala FC holds a significant advantage based on recent form:

  • Winning streak: Gokulam Kerala FC is currently on a four-match winning streak, including a convincing 4-1 victory over Rajasthan United FC on February 16th. This momentum can be a powerful psychological boost and translate to better on-field performance.
  • League position: They are currently in 3rd place in the I-League standings, with 34 points from 18 matches. This highlights their overall consistency and ability to compete against strong teams.
  • Attacking prowess: They have scored the second-highest number of goals (33) in the league, showcasing their offensive strength.

However, Namdhari FC shouldn’t be underestimated:

  • Home advantage: Playing at their home stadium could give them a slight edge, as they are familiar with the pitch and enjoy the support of their local fans.
  • Desperation to avoid relegation: Currently placed 11th, they are in the relegation zone and will be highly motivated to secure points. This “do-or-die” mentality can sometimes lead to unexpected results.


Gokulam Kerala FC is the clear favorite to win this match. Their recent form, superior league position, and attacking prowess suggest they have a higher chance of securing victory. However, Namdhari FC’s home advantage and relegation battle motivation cannot be ignored. The match might be closer than expected, but we predict a Gokulam Kerala FC win with a scoreline of 2-1.
