Jamshedpur look for better fortunes under Khalid Jamil, who takes charge of his first game in the Indian Super League as the Jamshedpur coach. In the process, the 46-year-old will also be going up against his former club, where he was in charge for 20 games. NorthEast United had a disappointing Kalinga Cup after failing to get past the group. However, they have done relatively well in the league with the team sitting in the top six places after 12 games.

Jamshedpur FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Jamshedpur have been looking strong under Khalid Jamil

The team has plenty of goalscorers across the pitch

Reasons to be fearful

The home performances from Jamshedpur have been underwhelming this season

The earlier meeting with NorthEast United ended in a defeat

Jamshedpur had a positive impact since the managerial change which resulted in the arrival of Khalid Jamil. After almost reaching the finals of the Kalinga Cup, the club are now looking to jump places in the Indian Super League. Jamshedpur have done very well against NorthEast United in the past, but the team ended up losing the reverse meeting back in October.

A victory in the upcoming game could push Jamshedpur level on points with NorthEast United.

Star man – Rei Tachikawa

Rei Tachikawa had a very strong game against East Bengal in the Kalinga Cup. Even though he was not on the scoresheet, the Japanese midfielder had plenty of shots at goal. He has two goals in his 12 league appearances this season.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

The team are still placed in the top six

Juan Pedro Benali has seen his team grab six goals in the last two matches

Reasons to be fearful

The team failed to get past the group stages of the Kalinga Cup

NorthEast United lost to Jamshedpur in the recent Kalinga Cup match

NorthEast United might have failed to get past the group stages of the Kalinga Cup but coach Juan Pedro Benali has reasons to be pleased about the overall campaign so far. In the last five games, NorthEast United have suffered only one defeat and this is a big improvement over their form in November and December.

This fixture has not been favourable for NorthEast United in recent years. The team also has reasons to be worried about playing away from home. Since March 2021, NorthEast United have had just one win away from home in all competitions.

Star man – Jithin MS

Jithin MS had a strong showing in his last appearance against Kerala Blasters in the Kalinga Cup. The winger has been able to hit two assists and the goals of the season. His pace will be one of the big weapons for NorthEast United in this game.

NorthEast United were able to get a close victory against Jamshedpur in the last meeting, but they are likely to struggle against a rejuvenated home team. Even though several places separate them on the league table, both could end up level on points by the end of the weekend. Jamshedpur have been doing very well under Jamil – especially in the offensive areas. The form of players like Tachikawa could end up being the key towards separating the two outfits.
