JFC Vs FCG Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two defeats on the spin for Goa see them grow further adrift from top spot in the league.
After a stuttering start to life in the ongoing instalment of the Indian Super League, it looked like Goa had finally managed to settle into their groove. Embarking on a three match unbeaten spin, the club was steadily climbing up the ladder to showcase its mettle and calibre of defending its title.
However, with two defeats on the bounce in its last couple of matches, Goa have ended up plummeting all the way down into 7th spot. Currently 8 points behind league leaders Mumbai, things all looking extremely bleak for Goa, a side Jamshedpur will be quietly confident of putting down.
“Every game, the boys have been stronger. We have tried to look into areas, we had to address. And the boys have responded. When you have a group like that, you can achieve good results,” Jamshedpur’s Coyle said ahead of the day’s encounter.
“FC Goa, they have some very talented individual players who can create problems. We will have to solve the problems on the field and look to give them problems,” he added.
Where Goa are waning as a unit, Jamshedpur on the other hand have been going from strength to strength. Yet to lose in their last five matches, we envision the club extending that run to six with a win today.

With two cleansheets in his last three encounters, TP Rehenesh to turning out to into a real prized asset for Jamshedpur. He delivered a match saving performance in the side’s most recent 1-0 to see him be a must have pick for us.
Giving him company for this contest is an entire trio from the club’s backline. Jamshedpur’s backline has had a massive hand to play in the side’s upward trajectory this season, a defensive unit which has swept the best of attacks under the mat.
Not conceding more than one in any of their last five matches, Jamshedpur have taken of the shape of a ruthless entity as a defensive unit. A cleansheet is never far from the clubs grasp to see us opt for Peter Hartley, Stephen Eze and Laldinliana.
Goa on the other hand will see us venture in with the services of Saviour Gama owing to his ability to do the dirty work defensively.
Although his side has slumped in form, Jorge Ortiz Mendoza has refused to be affected by that plight. He scored for the club the last time around to see him be a must have pick along with Edu Bedia.
Alberto Noguera Ripoll did everything but score for Goa in the same encounter, an enterprising player who is always involved in the side’s attacking plays. The visiting team will meanwhile see Jackichand be inducted in our setup owing to his assist the last time around.
Both the club’s leading scorers will be gracing the land of our team today. Level on goals, Jamshedpur’s Nerijus Valskis and Igor Angulo Alboniga will be competing for the moniker of outright top scorer in this contest.
