FC Goa and the ISL’s top scorer Igor Angulo is not leading the line for the team today while Jamshedpur FC have gone the usual and are starting their main man, Nerijus Valskis. How will this pan out? Will the quirky strategy work for FC Goa and Juan Ferrando or Jamshedpur FC make the best of the situation?
Jamshedpur FC starting XI: TP Rehenesh (GK), Stephen Eze, Peter Hartley (C), Ricky Lallawmawma, Narender Gahlot, Aitor Monroy, Alexandre Lima, Isaac Vanmalsawma, Mohammad Mobashir, Aniket Jadhav, Nerijus Valskis
Substitutes: Pawan Kumar, Amarjit Singh Kiyam, Francisco Grande, Jackichand Singh, Joyner Lourenco, Nicholas Fitzgerald, Karan Amin, Jitendra Singh, William Lalnunfela
FC Goa starting XI: Naveen Kumar (GK), Seriton Fernandes, Saviour Gama, James Donachie, Ivan Gonzalez, Lenny Rodrigues, Edu Bedia (C), Alexander Jesuraj, Brandon Fernandes, Jorge Ortiz, Alberto Noguera
Substitutes: Sanson Pereira, Princeton Rebello, Mohammad Nawaz, Phrangki Buam, Igor Angulo, Redeem Tlang, Ishan Pandita, Devendra Murgaokar, Mohamed Ali
Igor Angulo is not in the starting line-up!! Who will play striker – Ortiz? That is some surprise from Juan Ferrando. Also Naveen Kumar starts between the sticks instead of Nawaz.

The Gaurs finished on top last season, but this year, they have struggled to get desired results despite dominating most of their games. Ferrando’s men conceded the first goal in 8 out of their 10 matches. Lapses in concentration are not doing justice to their defense which, overall, has performed decently. Jamshedpur are yet to find a player who can get them goals apart from Nerijus Valskis. The Lithuanian has scored 8 out of 12 goals for Jamshedpur this season.
In their away leg, FC Goa were lucky to walk away with three points. However, coach Juan Ferrando seemed confident that he had addressed the issues in the concerned departments. « It’s (Jamshedpur) a good team and have very good players. For us, it’s a new chapter and we are working every day to improve some details in defence and some details in attack. We are not going to repeat the same problems against Jamshedpur. »
Jamshedpur coach Owen Coyle is well aware his side cannot make any mistakes against FC Goa, who dominate possession and are lethal in attack.
« We have to eradicate individual mistakes and continue to move forward, continue to improve. We have to do it against FC Goa, who are a very good side. We have to continue working hard, working together and continue to get better, » stated Coyle. « Goa have a very good coach and some terrific players and the playing style they have been playing for many years, that has continued their progression. All credits to them. We know their strengths, we know their weakness and now we have to give our best. And that’s our focus. »
