Newly crowned League Winners' Shield champions Jamshedpur FC (JFC) take on Kerala Blasters (KBFC) in the first leg of the Indian Super League 2021-22 semi-final at the Fatorda Stadium in Margao on Friday, March 11. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
JFC vs KBFC Dream11 prediction
The head to head record between Jamshedpur FC and Kerala Blasters is dominated by the former, who have won three of their 10 meetings in the ISL. Kerala Blasters, on the other hand, have only managed a solitary win while as many as six games have been drawn.
Come Friday, we expect Owen Coyle’s men to beat KBFC for the second time in three games, having already defeated them once this season. Interestingly, the last time these two sides met, in-form forward Greg Stewart scored twice from the penalty spot while Daniel Chima Chukwu capped off a 3-0 win for the Red Miners.
JFC vs KBFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
With three goals in two games already this season against Kerala Blasters, JFC forward Greg Stewart has proved to be quite a menace for the Blasters. The former Dundee striker has been involved in 21 goals this season (G11, A10) - most by any player - making him one of the top fantasy picks for the upcoming contest.
Top tip: Best midfielder
After being dropped to the bench against FC Goa, KBFC’s Adrian Luna will return to the starting XI for the all-important semi-final first leg against Jamshedpur FC. The 29-year-old Uruguayan has accrued 930 fantasy points this season while making it to the Dream Team in eight of his last 10 outings. He’s scored five goals as well as provided seven assists this season and is a smart pick among midfielders.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
JFC captain Peter Hartley is an outright pick for a defender. The veteran center-back has tallied 528 fantasy points this season which is the most by any defender involved in this fixture. The fact that he has made it to the Dream Team in three of his last five outings should make him one of the first names in your fantasy teams.
Finally, for a keeper, JFC’s TP Rehenesh should be preferred ahead of KBFC’s Prabhsukhan Singh as the former is more likely to keep a clean sheet in the first leg.
JFC vs KBFC probable playing XI
JFC playing XI (probable): TP Rehenesh (goalkeeper); Laldinliana Renthlei, Eli Sabia, Peter Hartley (captain), Ricky Lallawmawma; Jitendra Singh, Pronay Halder; Ritwik Das, Greg Stewart, Seiminlen Doungel; Daniel Chukwu
KBFC playing XI (probable): Prabhsukhan Singh Gill (goalkeeper), Ruivah Hormipam, Sandeep Singh, Sanjeev Stalin, Marko Leskovic, Lalthathanga Khawlhring, Ayush Adhikari, Sahal Samad, Adrian Luna (captain), Jorge Ortiz, Alvaro Vazquez
