THE TEAM NEWS

JAMSHEDPUR

  • Jamshedpur made a winning start to their 2019/20 Indian Super League campaign with a 2-1 victory against Odisha despite playing a large part of the match with ten men due to the dismissal of Bikash Jairu in the 35th minute.
  • They had led 1-0 prior to the red card but that incident gave Odisha a way back into the match which they duly took with an equalising goal just before half-time. Although both teams had chances to win the match in the second half it was Jamshedpur who took the three points courtesy of a debut goal from Sergio Castel in the 85th minute.
  • Bikash Jairu is suspended due to his red card against Odisha, whilst C. K. Vineeth missed their opening match and is a big doubt due to injury. Memo made an influential appearance from the bench against Odisha and he looks set to start.

HYDERABAD

  • Hyderabad had a debut to forget in their Indian Super League opener against ATK when they were soundly beaten 5-0 in their first match since taking the place of the now defunct FC Pune City.
  • The match was pretty much over when they were 3-0 down at half-time as the Hyderabad backline had no answer to the pace, movement and cutting edge of the ATK attack where David Williams and Roy Krishna were prevalent.
  • Phil Brown has a number of injury and selection concerns ahead of this match with Rafael Gomez, Giles Barnes and Marcelinho all picking up injuries against ATK and they are big doubts for this match whereas Nestor Gordillo is still suspended.

THE PREDICTION

Jamshedpur and Hyderabad had contrasting fortunes in their opening matches of the season with Jamshedpur battling to a win when playing for 55 minutes with ten men, whilst Hyderabad endured a nightmare start to life in the ISL when they were comprehensively defeated by ATK. Phil Brown’s misery was compounded with some injury problems from that game and it’s certainly not ideal as they look to bounce back. Jamshedpur showed plenty of team spirit and some good quality even when down to ten men against Odisha and they are tipped to take the three points from this encounter.
