MCFC vs JFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Jamshedpur FC will be eyeing a top-4 place when they host Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League regular season match at JRD Tata Sports Complex, in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, on Friday evening (IST).
With the second-fewest defeats so far, Jamshedpur FC have proved to be a tough nut to crack for most of the teams in the Indian Super League this season. But the mere avoidance of a negative result doesn't guarantee a win or all 3-points, and that's what has happened with the Men of Steel.
César Ferrando's team has played 8 draws in the 14 league games, a big reason why the team is still hovering on the fringes of playoff positions. In terms of wins, only four games have fetched them all 3 points, which is only the sixth-best record in the league.
With just four games remaining in the regular season, Jamshedpur are in real danger of missing out on the post-season. A win against Mumbai is of paramount importance and could go a long way in breaking into the top-4.
While Mumbai City are in a strong position and are sitting at 2nd with 27 points from 14 games. Considering the total points available at every team's disposal, they should make it into the playoffs.
However, there is still a lot of work to do in the season. Mumbai still need points, at least six from their last four games to secure a top-4 finish. If the Islanders win against Jamshedpur, they would effectively end all the threats from Cesar Ferrando's men for the top-4 places.
