Match 36 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season will see a high-flying Jamshedpur FC (JFC) side taking on a struggling Bengaluru FC (BFC )side at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa on Monday, December 20. The Matchday 8 fixture will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
JFC vs BFC Dream11 prediction
Since winning their opening game of the campaign, Bengaluru FC have struggled big time. The Blues are without a win in each of their last six outings (L4, D2) and have shipped in 13 goals during the time.
On the contrary, Jamshedpur have defied odds by winning three of their six matches this season. The Red Miners have scored eight goals in their last three games and have conceded a mere three.
Bengaluru FC have the edge in terms of their head-to-head record against Jamshedpur FC, having won four and lost just two of their eight meetings, but given the balance head coach Owen Coyle has established in the JFC squad this season, the Red Miners will have the outright advantage over BFC on Monday.
JFC vs BFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
JFC frontman Greg Stewart has been in staggering form this season. The 31-year-old has already netted four times in six outings and has proven to be a massive coup for the fantasy managers, having accumulated a whopping 417 fantasy points. Stewart is averaging almost 70 points per game, making him a must-have player for this fixture.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Like Stewart, JFC’s Alexandre Lima has enjoyed a fine run of form and has delivered consistent points since the beginning. The 33-year-old has accrued 221 fantasy points in six games while making it to the Dream Team on all occasions. At 9.0 credits, he sure remains an expensive investment, but worth taking a risk.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
With 213 fantasy points, JFC captain Peter Hartley is the highest-scoring defender for this game. Hence, it comes as no surprise that 95.06 per cent of fantasy managers have decided to add him to their teams. The 33-year-old centre-back is a strong recommendation for this game.
Given the form JFC are in, Rehenesh TP should be an ideal pick for a goalkeeper. The former Kerala Blasters stopper has more chances of keeping a clean sheet on Monday, making him the most picked stopper for this fixture.
JFC vs BFC probable playing XI
JFC playing XI (probable): Rehenesh TP (goalkeeper); Laldinliana Renthlei, Eli Sabia, Peter Hartley (captain), Ricky Lallawmawma; Seiminlen Doungel, Pronay Halder, Alex Lima, Komal Thatal; Greg Stewart, Nerijus Valskis
BFC playing XI (probable): Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (goalkeeper), Naorem Roshan Singh, Pratik Chaudhari, Alan Costa, Ashique Kuruniyan, Jayesh Rane, Bruno Ramires, Suresh Singh Wangjam, Prince Ibara, Cleiton Silva, Sunil Chhetri (captain)
