Indian Super League 2018
Undefeated teams collide in the Indian Super League as Jamshedpur FC hosts FC Goa on Thursday.
Where: JRD Tata Sports Complex, Jamshedpur
When: November 1, 07:30 PM, IST
Jamshedpur FC has played five games this season and have drawn four of them. It is not the best outcome for the new coach in Cesar Ferrando. In the previous game, it appeared that the team had finally found their correct formation but lost a good 2-0 lead be a draw. One of the reasons for this has to be the fact that the constant shuffling of players has caused an instability in the team and the coach has to retain some of the players for this game so they can get used to playing with each other.
However, their opponents FC Goa have been an excellent side this time out. They are scoring goals for fun and are a dangerous side for anyone to face. If the team is not able to make into the playoffs it would be the biggest surprise of the season. Manager Sergio Lobera has been done everything right with the team till now and has made his team one of the favourites to win the whole tournament.

It is very easy to make a Fantain fantasy team, like any other fantasy team you get 100 salary points here from which you can select your desired players.
Here, only your skills for the game and how you invest your salary points will matter the most. Here you have a choice to select 3-5 Midfielders, 3-5 defenders, 1-3 Forwards and 1 Goalkeeper.
The best part of this app is you can select 3 substitutes from the two squads. If these players perform well on the pitch then their points will be multiplied by 0.5. Ergo, you will have three players who will be giving you more points and no salary points are required in selecting these substitutes.
Here is how you make your team:
Among the Midfielders, we have taken the likes of Eduardo Bedia Pelaez and Jackichand Singh from FC Goa. The duo will be taking the responsibility of scoring the goals in this match as Coro is suspended.
From Jamshedpur FC, we have taken Marlo Arques and Michael Soosairaj. They are attacking midfielders for the team and will be looking to supplement goals or assists for the team.
While picking the defenders, we have taken Mourtada Fall and Chinglensana Singh Kangujam from FC Goa. We have taken the centre-back pair for this game as they have done a commendable job till now in the season.
From the hosts, Yumnam Raju Mangang and Pratik Chowdhary have been included. The combination of a right back and a centre-back is taken.
Forwards are the one who score the majority of the goals for the team, and we have selected one from either team in Fantain Fantasy Team.
Sergio Cidoncha is selected from Jamshedpur FC as he has been the only striker in the team who has been able to score goals or have assists.
Meanwhile, since we cannot take Coro in our team as he is suspended, we have taken his understudy in Manvir Singh who will be leading the lineup in this game.
Since we can only choose one goalkeeper, we will be choosing FC Goa’s, Nawaz Khan. He has done really well in this season and we back him to continue with these sort of performances.
After all this is done, you have to choose your captain and vice-captain whose points will be multiplied by 2 and 1.5 respectively.
The new feature in this app is selecting the substitutes. Here, you can select three players whom you have missed in your fantain fantasy team but you have an option to select them as substitutes and if they play and earn some points, those points will be multiplied by 0.5.
In this category, we are going with Carlos Calvo, Hudo Adnan Boumous and Emerson Gomes de Moura.
So, here’s our Fantain fantasy team.
Please note: The team we have provided here is based on our analysis and understanding. You can go with the same team or you can choose your own.
