FC Goa (FCG) take on Jamshedpur FC (JFC) in Matchday 2 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Friday, November 26.
FCG vs JFC Dream11 prediction
FC Goa made a disappointing start to their new ISL season, losing out 3-0 to defending champions Mumbai City FC. Jamshedpur FC, on the other hand, were held to a 1-1 draw by East Bengal in their tournament opener.
Both FCG and JFC were dominant in possession in their respective games but lacked the end result. Friday’s game, however, might see FC Goa getting their first win given their dominance over JFC in the past. In a total of eight matches played between the two teams, FC Goa have won five while Jamshedpur have been victorious on just two occasions.
