Jamshedpur FC vs Hyderabad FC: Building up
A win here would elevate the prospect of either as a playoffs contender. They both arrive on the back of a solid win against two teams that made the playoffs last season at their expense. Owen Coyle and Manolo Marquez’s men are also quite on the same path after two matches.
Hyderabad FC started their season with a narrow defeat to Chennaiyin FC. They dominated the game for major periods, had more shots on target, better scoring chances. But ended up on the wrong side. Quite similarly, Jamshedpur FC dominated against SC East Bengal, but had to stay content with a single point.
Both turned up in style in their next game with identical wins. Manolo Marquez’s men decimated FC Goa with a 3-1 win before the Nizams repeated the feat against defending champions Mumbai City FC. After an underwhelming opening fixture, their strikers rediscovered their form and found the back of the nets while substitutes came off the bench and killed the game.
However, they are separated by four positions on the points table, albeit with only a single point gap. Jamshedpur FC, thanks to their unbeaten start are fourth in the table. A win will take them to the top, although they will have played a game more than ATK Mohun Bagan, Odisha FC and Chennaiyin FC, who have a clean slate after two matches. Hyderabad FC are at the seventh spot, but depending on how many goals they score, the Nizams also have a chance to enter top four.
