Competition: Thu 14.January
Match begins: 14:00 (UTC)

Getting closer to the top teams is at stake when these two mid-table clubs battle it out. Both will be aiming to improve their league table standing, Goa in 4th and Jamshedpur in 5th place.

Insights:
  • Goa has the most points from losing position (9) in Indian Super League
  • Jamshedpur have not yet lost a game away.

Jamshedpur could be less fresh than the hosts in this fixture, as they played a Indian Super League game only four sleeps ago.

These teams have little in common geographically as Jamshedpur have to travel 2100 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Goa form and stats

Goa have collected 5 points from their Indian Super League home games so far after 1-2-2.

Goa shared the glory with East Bengal in their last match, an away game that ended all square 1-1. Before that match, a win away at Hyderabad.

The hometeam coach J. Ferrando Fenol made a successful contribution in the game against East Bengal, bringing on Devendra Dhaku Murgaokar who scored the equalizer in the 1-1 draw.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Indian Super League game versus ATK Mohun Bagan in only three days. This game is also played here.

Jamshedpur form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Indian Super League travels is 2 wins, 3 draws and 0 defeats. Momentum is building for Jamshedpur in their away games, having won their two previous outings.

Jamshedpur's previous game was their home loss versus Kerala Blasters (2-3). Before that one, a nice away victory 1-0 at Bengaluru.

Jamshedpur had apparently made the football gods angry before the game against Kerala Blasters, losing the match after hitting the woodwork three times.

A quick return to home after this game, as Jamshedpur are hosting NorthEast United in the Indian Super League only three days away.

The attacking power of Jamshedpur when travelling is not overwhelming with 4 goals scored from 5 league matches away. Jamshedpur are tight as a drum on their travels, having allowed the opposition only 2 goals away.

Head 2 Head
