The Indian Super League returns to the Fatorda Stadium in Goa as FC Goa prep to host Jamshedpur in what will be the 24th fixture of the 2019-20 ISL season. After over a 15 day long international break, the league finally resumes for both Jamshedpur FC and FC Goa, as the teams will lock horns to battle it out for the three points that are on the line.
While Jamshedpur FC didn’t head into the international hiatus in the most ideal manner after a 3-1 defeat against ATK, the Gaurs rang out 4-2 winners at the Mumbai Football Arena when they faced the Islanders on November 7. Goals from Lenny Rodrigues, Ferran Corominas, Hugo Boumous and Carlos Pena sealed an emphatic win for a last season’s runners-up in Mumbai earlier this month. Jamshedpur FC could not match up to ATK’s attacking philosophy executed to perfection by Antonio Lopez Habas’ men when the team travelled to play their first away fixture of the ongoing ISL season.
Come Tuesday, the hosts are placed third on the points table while Jamshedpur FC occupy fifth spot on the ISL standings currently. Having a remarkable start to ISL-6, Jamshedpur FC have managed to secure two wins and a draw, and have lost only one match in the four played so far. Looking to recover their momentum, Antonio Iriondo’s men will give it all they have got on the greens of the Fatorda but the team in Orange will certainly not make it easy for the traveling side.
FC Goa host Jamshedpur FC at 7.30pm on Tuesday, November 26 evening and the match will be televised LIVE on the Star Sports Network as well as Hotstar.
