For new boys Hyderabad, lie in the Indian Super League began in a fashion the side would never have fathomed. They were immediately thrown into the competitive end of the league, being obliterated 5-0 in their first ever match in the ongoing edition of the league, a result from which the fallouts threaten to be immense for the side.
Thumped and routed in their league opener, the side move onto Jamshedpur today, a much which comes bearing for them massive ramifications. It’s not just owing to the trashing they received in their previous encounter but also due to the identity of their opponents, a stern, tricky and stringent side which will pose as a staunch opposition to the side.
Looking to unlock the true potential of the side after having ended in 5th place for two seasons on the bounce ever since their onset in the league, the hosts underwent a complete overhaul as they looked to stop being underachievers. And it served them fruitfully as well in their league opener, a match where they managed to edge past Odisha by the one goal, a win which was hailed due to the nature of the circumstances the win came in.
Despite being reduced to 10 men after receiving a red card, Jamshedpur showed the requisite reslliance, determination and resistance needed to lead them to consummate success as they hung onto a 2-1 lead to take them to three points.

JFC vs HYD Dream11 Team Picks
After conceding five goals in their previous encounter, Hyderabad made one thing clear this season. Although it was only their first match in the league, the side were paper thin at best in their defensive setup, persistently trying to pick up the pieces of a lacklustre and lopsided backline.
It’s this discourse which sees us subject ourselves to the pick of Kamaljit Singh, someone who put in a determined and valour filled show despite encountering an absolute onslaught of shots his way. It’s something which should immerse our side in a pool of save points, seeing us go in with him for this tie.
With Hyderabad failing to muster up a single goal in their foregone match and Jamshedpur coming across as a well disciplined and responsible defensive unit, it was only befitting of us to move in with the majority of defenders from their side for this one. We begin by getting in Tiri and Keegan Pereira from the side, two mainstays of the side’s backline, names who showed the acumen needed to shun out opposition attacks.
Elsewhere we also have the one pick coming in from the visiting side, opting for Matthew Kilgallon from the unit for this prevelant encounter.
We begin by getting in Francisco Medina Luna from the home side for this encounter, a player who was quintessential to the side’s previous performance. Not only did he put up a diminutive display in the attacking facet of his side’s game but was also a force to reckon with when it came to putting in tackles and blocks, coming up with a sublime all round performance to make him an instant pick for us.
He finds company in the partnership of Noe Acosta and Aniket Jadhav, two players who can easily pile on the misery on Hyderabad today given their astounding brand of attacking layup football. From the opposition meanwhile we are venturing in with Adil Khan and Marko Stankovic for today’s clash.
After scoring in the dying stages of his side’s contest against Odisha to ensure his outfit ended up with all three points on the day, Sergio Castel had to be our first pick in this docket. The striker showed tenacity across the 90 minutes, putting on a display worthy of winning the match for his side, a performance which saw him use his innate ability to leave defenders in tatters.
We have the one pick come in from the opposing side as well, opting to go in with Giles Barnes for this one, someone who the side will bank on heavily today to try and rattle Jamshedpur’s defenders.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Castel has been opted for as our side’s captain for this one while Luna makes a foray in our Dream 11 side as our vice-captain.
