KBFC vs JFC Dream11 : Struggling Jamshedpur FC take on Kerala Blasters FC in a top 4 finish race. Jamshedpur needs to get back to winning ways if they aim to qualify for the play-offs.
Iriondo & Co. have been winless in the last six encounters, out of which they have lost the last three. A win on Sunday will set their campaign back on track for the play-off position. Fact that the Jamshedpur FC has never lost to Kerala Blasters in the ISL will boost up the confidence of the home side and their fans. The key will be to draw an early attack and play high possession football. Return of Sergio Castel will be a big sign of relief as Jamshedpur struggled in his absence.
Kerala Blasters on the other hand have had a below par season. The two times finalist have managed only 3 wins this season so far. However things have been on the positive side for them in the past two matches; Men in Yellow have won both their last ties and are hoping for a positive result on Sunday. Kerala managed a clean sheet in their previous game against ATK and are expected to put up a great show against Jamshedpur.
Both teams are looking for a victory and might go full fledge on Sunday. Looking at the two attacks and their defensive units I anticipate a draw, which might not be helpful for either of the sides.
Kerala Blasters are fortunate to have no injuries in their camp and might start with the same team that started against ATK. Sergio Castel is expected to return for the home side; however I am not sure if he will start.

JFC vs KBFC Dream11 Goalkeeper
Subrato Paul is a fruitful ranked goalkeeper with two clean sheets and 30 saves in his 11 appearances Paul is my first choice keeper. Since Jamshedpur are playing a home game I have selected Paul over Rehenesh.
JFC vs KBFC Dream11 Defenders
Tiri has been a standout performer for the Red Miners, The Spaniard provides solidity and leads the defensive unit for the home side. Tiri has already scored a goal, has won 25 tackles and intercepted 21 dangerous attacks this season. For his mobility in the defense Tiri is an obvious choice for me.
Jessel Carneiro and Mohamad Rakip have been a perfect defensive pair for the Men in Yellow. Agility and speed are the two main weapons of the duo and have been pretty effective in the past two games. The duo collectively has made 52 tackles and 30 Interceptions and are a difficult pair to go across. With Sergio Castel’s unsurety to start the game, I feel KBFC defenders have an edge over the home side
JFC vs KBFC Dream11 Midfielders
Noe Acosta made a comeback after an injury in the previous game. Acosta has been clinical with his defensive play in the midfield. The Spaniard brings immense experience and expertise to the Jamshedpur unit.
Aitor Monroy another Spaniard in the Jamshedpur side has a similar role like his fellow country man. Monroy has been creative and assertive in his midfield role and has made a staggering 72 tackles so far this season and also has scored for his side.
Memo Moura started his campaign with Jamshedpiur this season. The Men of Steel allow him flexibility in the midfield which allows him to be more creative. The Brazilian will play a key role if Jamshedpur qualify for the playoffs this season
Seityasen Singh has moved in to the Kerala Blasters set up this season after coming back from a long term injury. Singh’s attacking moves up front have proved clinical for the visitors this season. In his 7 appearances this season Singh has already scored and assisted a goal for his side.
JFC vs KBFC Dream11 Forwards
Starting with Raphael Messi Bouli has proved a positive move for his side his partnership with Bartholomew Ogbeche has been incredible as the duo has collectively scored 11 goals so far
and Farukh Choudhary has taken the entire responsibility on his shoulders in absence of Sergio Castle. His agility and attacking movement upfront makes him a special player.
JFC vs KBFC Dream11 Power Players
For goal scoring abilities Ogbeche will be the Captain and Choudhary is the Vice Captain
