East Bengal vs Jamshedpur FC: Build-up

In a clash between two teams that are languishing at the bottom half of the ISL table, East Bengal will take on Jamshedpur FC in Kolkata on Friday. After getting a win against Bengaluru two weeks back, East Bengal lost the following game against Odisha FC by a margin of 3-1. Despite taking an early lead in the game with a masterclass from Cleiton Silva, the side lost its plot and conceded thrice to taste yet another defeat at the hands of the Juggernauts. Thus, on Friday, taking advantage of home support, the club will like to get three points against a struggling Jamshedpur FC.

The story of Jamshedpur FC has been worse than that of the Red & Gold Brigade. The current League Shield Winners are having a nightmare of a season in which they have won only one out of the 13 games that they have played so far. They are on a 10-game winless streak. Their last and only win came against NorthEast United on 30th October 2022. The side drew their last game against Chennaiyin FC despite registering a healthy 2-0 lead in the game. Jamshedpur’s lack of composure came to the forefront in the match as they conceded twice to give away their lead and settled for a solitary point.

East Bengal have a few niggles in the side meanwhile Jamshedpur FC will have a full roster to choose from.
