Jamshedpur FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan FC Prediction: Indian Super League 2020/21

After consecutive draws in the Indian super league, Jamshedpur FC is all set to face the in-form ATK Mohun Bagan in the upcoming ISL game. 

Jamshedpur FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan FC Prediction:

The Men of Steel have not had the best of starts to the 2020-21 campaign as they are winless in the first three fixtures of the game,  something coach Owen Coyle is hoping to change as soon as possible.

The Mariners, on the other hand, have been rampant till now as they have maintained a perfect record in the league so far, while Antonio Lopez Habas has several injury concerns for a few key players.

It will be fascinating to see if Jamshedpur FC can take this as an opportunity and register their first win of the season. 

The Men of Steel have looked positive in their recent games. However, the bigger problem is their defence which needs some sorting out. Roy Krishna from ATK Mohun Bagan will be an important threat to them and they would want to handle him without any problems.

ATK Mohun Bagan, on the other hand, would not want to spoil the form they are in at the moment. Edu Garcia and David Williams are struggling with injuries, and the team looks to rely a lot on Roy Krishna.

However, it is now time for Indian players like Manvir Singh, Jayesh Rane, and several others to step up and provide Roy Krishna with some relief.

The Men of Steel will miss the likes of David Grande as he is out injured. However, Amarjeet Singh Kiyam had a fine game against Hyderabad FC so he will be available for the match against the Mariners as well.

Habas is expected to be without Edu Garcia and David Williams, and therefore, the Spanish coach will field an unchanged lineup from the last game.

Players to Watch For:

Nerijus Valskis

The Lithuanian striker has barely taken rest from last season, and he will hope that he continues his fine form, against the Mariners. He has been instrumental in Jamshedpur's attack and the tradition is expected to go on in the future games as well.

He will be up against one of the finest defences as Jamshedpur look ahead for their first win of this season. 

Roy Krishna

Roy Krishna of ATK Mohun Bagan

There are no doubts about Roy Krishna and his capabilities. However, ATK Mohun Bagan has been over-reliant on the forward and with two key players out, the Fijian will have an added responsibility to get his team away from tough situations.

 His last goal against Odisha FC was one of the most crucial ones in the tournament and that was an unprecedented depiction of his mentality and exceptional scoring abilities.

He will be on the nerves of Jamshedpur's naive defence and it will be interesting to see how they plan to stop him.

Jamshedpur vs Mohun Bagan FC Prediction:

Despite being away, ATK Mohun Bagan will be the clear favourites of the game. However, Jamshedpur FC can give their best and make the most of the injuries ATK Mohun Bagan are struggling with.

They will have to take their chances, be clinical in front of the goal, and make sure that their defence doesn't leak goals. The game could go either way although Jamshedpur FC has a lot on the line.
