High flying Kerala Blasters (KBFC) take on Jamshedpur FC (JFC) in match 41 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco da Gama, Goa on Sunday, December 26. The Matchday 9 fixture will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
KBFC vs JFC Dream11 prediction
After a rather poor start to their ISL 2021-22 campaign, Kerala Blasters have managed to get positive results in their recent outings. Since their 1-1 draw against Bengaluru FC on November 28, KBFC have won three of their last four games, scoring nine goals and conceding just two.
On the contrary, Jamshedpur FC have won just two of their last five matches as they sit third in the ISL 2021-22 points table. Although their current form is troubling, their head-to-head record against Kerala Blasters surprisingly gives them the edge. In a total of eight meetings, JFC have won two while KBFC have won just one. As many as five games have ended without a winner.
On Sunday though, we expect KBFC to capitalise on the current moment and get their second win over JFC.
KBFC vs JFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
With 459 points in seven games, JFC’s Greg Stewart is an outright choice for a striker. The 31-year-old has scored four goals this season coupled with as many assists, making him an undroppable player for any fixture let alone against Kerala Blasters. Stewart is certain to make an impact on Sunday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
At 9.0 credits, JFC’s Alexandre Lima might very well be an expensive investment, but it goes without saying that he has been worth every penny so far. Lima has accrued 257 fantasy points in seven matches and has made it to the Dream Team on all occasions.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Selected by 96.07 per cent of fantasy managers, JFC defender Peter Hartley is the most picked player for this fixture. The experienced centre-back has accumulated 253 fantasy points so far while making it to the Dream Team on three occasions. He is a strong recommendation for this game.
For a goalkeeper, JFC’s Rehenesh TP has proved out to be a shrewd acquisition for the fantasy managers. Given his tally of 138 fantasy points from seven matches, it comes as no surprise that 79.03 per cent of users have decided to add him to their teams.
