Jamshedpur FC (JFC) will take on Mumbai City FC (MCFC) in the rescheduled match 67 of Indian Super League 2021-22 at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa on Thursday, February 17. The match will start from 7:30 PM IST.
JFC vs MCFC Dream11 prediction
Both JFC and MCFC are tied on 25 points on the ISL 2021-22 standings but it is Jamshedpur who are in an advantageous position considering they have a game in hand over the Islanders.
Mumbai, on the other hand, enter the fixture with back-to-back league wins following a lean patch. The defending champions registered a 4-2 win against Jamshedpur in the reverse meeting this term and will aim to complete a double over them on Thursday.
JFC though have four wins in their last five outings and will be slight favourites in this contest. Furthermore, the Owen Coyle-coached Red Miners have a slight edge over MCFC in the head-to-head record in Indian Super League, winning four and losing three of the nine matches contested between the teams so far.
JFC vs MCFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Greg Stewart has been impressive for Jamshedpur FC in ISL 2021-22. The 31-year-old forward has seven goals and six assists in 14 matches so far, earning him 837 fantasy points. Picking Stewart in your fantasy team gives you a guarantee of either a goal or an assist.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Mumbai City FC’s Ahmed Jahouh is our recommendation for the midfielder spot. The Moroccan has been the brains of MCFC’s attack this season, registering three goals and seven assists in 14 games. Jahouh is closing in on a record for most assists by a Mumbai City FC player and is guaranteed to play a pivotal role in the midfield engine room for the Islanders.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Among the defenders, it is a no-brainer to pick Mourtada Fall in your fantasy football team. The MCFC skipper has made 24 key interceptions and 63 clearances in 14 matches this season besides scoring twice. A gigantic presence in the backline, Fall will play an important role to stop the likes of Alexandre Lima and Greg Stewart.
For the goalkeeper spot, Jamshedpur’s TP Rehenesh should be the preferred choice over MCFC’s Mohammad Nawaz. Rehnesh has kept four clean sheets in 12 matches this term, amassing 236 fantasy points in the process. Mohammad Nawaz has kept just one clean sheet in four of his last five games and will be tested heavily by JFC’s attacking talents.
JFC vs MCFC probable playing XI
JFC playing XI (probable): TP Rehenesh (goalkeeper), Laldinliana Renthlei, Eli Sabia, Peter Hartley (captain), Ricky Lallawmawma, Boris Singh, Pronay Halder, Jitendra Singh, Alexandre Lima, Greg Stewart, Daniel Chukwu
MCFC playing XI (probable): Mohammad Nawaz (goalkeeper), Rahul Bheke, Mourtada Fall (captain), Mehtab Singh, Mandar Rao Dessai, Lalengmawia, Ahmed Jahouh, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Cassio Gabriel, Bipin Singh, Igor Angulo
