Jamshedpur FC vs East Bengal: Build-up
Jamshedpur FC will be desperate to get back to action and do justice to their last season’s dream run when they take on a resurgent East Bengal in the 2022-23 Indian Super League (ISL) at the JRD Tata Sports Complex.
Jamshedpur last featured in a 3-1 loss against Chennaiyin FC. The Men of Steel are sitting a place below the Red & Gold brigade and a win can push them higher. Meanwhile, East Bengal suffered a disastrous loss against Odisha FC after taking a 2-0 lead. With both their victories coming away from home, the Red & Golds will be aiming all three points in this clash!
The team’s 1-3 loss to Chennaiyin FC was a rather disappointing result, and it made it three losses in a row. While they initially came back to score an equalizer through Ishan Pandita’s worldie, two spectacular goals in the last 15 minutes meant a victory for the Marina Machans. Nonetheless, they displayed a slightly better attacking performance from their previous game against Hyderabad FC. Harry Sawyer again excelled in set-pieces and long balls and registered an assist from one of them for Pandita’s goal.
Similar to Jamshedpur FC, the Red & Golds haven’t had ideal results so far either. While they lost 2-4 against Odisha FC, they won 1-0 against Simon Grayson’s Bengaluru FC in the previous game. Stephen Constantine’s men displayed a mature performance in the second half against the Blues.
