Jamshedpur FC will look to extend their six-match unbeaten streak when they take on FC Goa in the Indian Super League (ISL) at Tilak Maidan in Vasco da Gama on Wednesday.
Under head coach Owen Coyle, Jamshedpur FC have been rock solid at the back with their defensive pairing of Peter Hartley and Stephen Eze conceding just one goal in the last three matches, keeping two clean sheets. The Red Miners’ only defeat came against Chennaiyin FC in their opening match of the ISL 2020-21 season.
On the other hand, FC Goa have struggled with their defence as they have already conceded eight goals in seven games. In their last two encounters, the Gaurs have faced 29 shots of which 10 have been on target. For Juan Ferrando’s side, this is a must-win encounter after they have lost two games on the trot.
The much-awaited clash will also witness a battle between the two top scorers of ISL 7 for the Golden Boot race-- Igor Angulo and Nerijus Valskis, who are tied on six goals each from seven games. Watch Jamshedpur FC vs FC Goa live on streaming and on TV.
