Prediction

How can the match turn out tomorrow?

Jamshedpur are favorites by a mile and should not have any problem picking up the win tomorrow.

However, they cannot take the match lightly as anything except a win will see them out of competition for qualifying for the play-offs.

Chennaiyin, after their recent win against Bengaluru, should also be charged up for the fight.

We predict 3-1 to Jamshedpur.

Fantasy XI

What should be the ideal Fantasy XI for the match?

Choose Karanjit Singh as the goalkeeper keeping a 4-3-3 formation in mind.

Gurung and Sabia can play as the central defenders as Renthlei and Dhanachandra take up the left and right back roles respectively.

Augusto, Narzary, and Memo can be the midfielders for the match as Jeje, Passi, and Vineeth take up attacking duties.
