Bengaluru FC have been inconsistent this season, they have won three matches, drew three and lost one so far. They have struggled to build a winning momentum. Jamshedpur FC, on the other hand, will be looking for a third win of the season after being on the wrong side of several refereeing decisions. Jamshedpur are currently sixth in the points table but can jump to the fourth spot if they manage to beat Bengaluru FC.
While acknowledging Jamshedpur deserved more points, BFC coach Carles Cuadrat said he expects a difficult match. “Jamshedpur are doing really good work and they deserve to have more points on the table,” said Cuadrat. “We have to control Jamshedpur. Their foreigners are getting better with every passing week, and their young Indian players are also doing well. Jamshedpur will be a tough opponent to face, but we have a plan, and we will try to get the three points.”
Jamshedpur will bank on Nerijus Valskis to cause problems for the opposition defence, having scored six goals. The Lithuanian, however, is yet to score against BFC. Owen Coyle, however, was optimistic about the game. It’s a tough game for both teams. BFC are well respected. They have a terrific coach and very good players. Very hard working and organised team,” he said. “We are looking forward to playing against the best teams and best players. We are capable of winning against best. But we need to be at our best against a very good team BFC.”
