FC Goa vs Jamshedpur FC H2H
- FC Goa won the first leg of this fixture in the ISL 2020-21 by 2-1.
Goa to win: Why is this a good bet?
- The Gaurs have not lost a match in their last 3 appearances
- They lead Jamshedpur FC by 2 points and sit at the 4th place in the table
- Goa have conceded just 11 goals this season – 2nd lowest in the league
- Igor Angulo leads the golden boot race with 9 goals – just one shy of JFC’s Nerijus Valskis
On the paper, this match may be a bit too close to call. After all, there is not a lot that separates the two sides and even the ISL’s top goal scorers hail from these clubs.
But what makes us favour FC Goa is their overall pedigree and discipline. As two-time runners-up, three-time semifinalists, and last year’s League Premiers, they have seen their fair share of success and proven themselves to be capable of a side that can give a title chase.
Their recent results entail a 1-1 draw to a very determined SC East Bengal, preceded by wins over Hyderabad and Jamshedpur FC.
The Gaurs have lost just 3 matches this season – the same as the Red Miners.
Another interesting tidbit is that Juan Ferrando’s men have taken the most shots in the league this season – 147 – 30% more than Jamshedpur. They are an attacking side that likes to get in the box.
Meanwhile, things are not too bad for Owen Coyle led Jamshedpur either. Barring a surprising 3-2 loss to Kerala Blasters last weekend, they have done well for themselves.
They beat Bengaluru FC and NorthEast United and admittedly, they have relied on Valskis more often than not to get the job done. Stephen Eze steps up every now and then but one wonders how far they can go with the Lithuanian talisman at the helm.
However, even Goa are relying on Angulo for goals but they have looked much more cohesive as a unit than JFC. It is this factor that prompts us to peg them as the potential winners.
Both Teams to Score: Why is this a good bet?
Goa’s last 3 matches have seen goals from both sides. The same has been the case for Jamshedpur FC too but in 2 of their last 3 games. Logic dictates that this tie may go down a similar path too.
As for Over 2.5 goals in this match bet, we say this because of the sheer quality of players in the two teams. It’s a personal battle between Angulo and Valskis, but the other lads in the mix also add an interesting dynamic to this whole fixture.
