JFC vs CFC Dream11: Two teams with contrasting home and away form will clash in round-seven of Indian Super League as Jamshedpur FC host Chennaiyin FC at JRD Tata Sports Complex, in Jamshedpur, India, on Monday evening (IST).
The hosts are averaging 2 points per game in home matches this season, and remain one of the only four unbeaten teams left in ISL in home games, while the visitors are the 2nd worst team in away games, losing twice already in as many games on the road going into this match.
Where do they stand?
Jamshedpur are fourth heading into this match, but they will move to 2nd and level on points with ATK, who have a huge goal-difference at this moment, with a win over Chennaiyin in this game. The Men of Steel have one win and a draw in the last two games.
Chennaiyin FC, meanwhile, are once again looking down and out, enduring another tough start to the season. They are 2nd from bottom, and already six points off top-four. But the recent form should give the Marina Arena fans a cause for optimism, as the team is without a defeat in two, and four of the total five points have come in the last two matches. Indeed, new head coach Owen Coyle can use the form as a platform to launch the season.
Host: Jamshedpur FC
Visitors: Chennaiyin FC

Game changers – Key players:
Farukh Choudhary: 01 Goal.
Noé Acosta: Intelligent on the ball. A good passer of the ball. Can shoot and good in the air.
C. K. Vineeth: Good in air.
Nerijus Valskis: 03 Goals
Andre Schembri: 01 Goal.
Jamshedpur FC: The hosts have been dealt a huge blow as super striker Sergio Castel has been ruled out after failing to recover from a knock sustained in the last game against NorthEast United. Jamshedpur head coach failed to name who would fill the Castel's boots, who has scored a whopping five of his team's six goals, rather said, his decision would depend on who impresses the most in the training.
Piti is back in training after missing the last two matches due to an injury, but will have to face a late fitness test before the game.
Chennaiyin FC: No injury problems for the visitors but Owen Coyle will likely make changes to the playing 11 John Gregory named in his last game in charge.
