THREE INDIANS AND FOREIGNERS TO LOOK-OUT FOR
Sahal Abdul Samad, Sandeep Singh, Farukh Choudhary
Sahal Abdul Samad and Sandeep Singh have been consistently monumental for their sides in a lot of ways. They both are one of the three Indian players to look out for.
Farukh Choudhary returned to his former side and Owen Coyle emphasized how attacking from the wings is now a viable option for his side from this player’s inclusion.
Juande, Jordan Murray and Nicholas Fitzgerald
Juande has proved to be a key signing for the side and has provided the stability in the midfield that the team had been looking for for a long time. Jordan Murray, needless to say, has been monumental in what Kerala Blasters FC are this season and his presence will be highly beneficial for the side.
Nicholas Fitzgerald, as said by Owen Coyle, is now fully fit to play for the side and will look to provide the stability the team has been in search for for quite some time now.
HEAD TO HEADS
In the seven meetings between the teams, Kerala Blasters FC has notched a single win against their opponents tonight, Jamshedpur FC has won twice, and the matches have drawn four times.
Kerala Blasters FC has scored eleven goals against Jamshedpur FC whilst the latter has score twelve against the prior.
With the absence of Rahul KP, Jeakson Singh and Kibu Vicuña, even though it is a do or die game for Kerala Blasters FC, could prove to be detrimental tonight. And since Jamshedpur FC are hungry for a win and will be looking for a massive comeback, we’re expecting an away win tonight.
