The upcoming match between Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC (BFC Vs JFC) is believed to be a complete package of entertainment as the tournament has just begun and Jamshedpur FC would like to change things around for them. Being ranked 6th with just 6 points on the 10 club list in the league, Jamshedpur FC would like to register their second win in this tournament. So far, they have won one match, lost one match and have drawn three matches. On the other hand, Bengaluru FC would want to continue their winning streak as they did in their last two matches after losing out to FC Goa in a nail-biting match. Currently, Bengaluru FC holds the second position on the league table with 12 points.
Both the teams would try everything to ensure that they bag the crucial 2 points of the match and go higher on the points table. The stakes are higher for Jamshedpur FC as they have drawn their last three matches after winning against Delhi Dynamos FC with 1- 0 goal. Things wouldn’t be easy for Jamshedpur FC as they would be the visiting team in Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru.

Bengaluru FC, after a blistering start to their debut Indian Super League (ISL) season, finds themselves sitting second in the table after notching four wins in six games so far. Albert Roca’s side, however, has struggled a touch in their recent games and will come into this fixture with a ‘must-win’ mentality.
They have struggled physically in the previous two games against FC Pune City and Chennaiyin FC. While they were bailed out against Pune City by Baljit Sahni’s red card, Chennaiyin FC consigned them to their first home defeat on Sunday.
As a result, we should see the imposing figure of Erik Paartalu return to midfield while Udanta Singh, who was a substitute in the previous game, should start on the wings.
Can we expect goals by either team on Thursday?
Gurpreet Singh (GK), Rahul Bheke, Juanan, Subhasish Bose, Harmanjot Khabra, Dimas Delgado, Erik Paartalu, Edu Garcia, Sunil Chhetri, Udanta Singh, Miku
Subrata Paul (GK), Tiri, Andre Bikey, Shouvik Ghosh, Souvik Chakrabarti, Memo, Mehtab Hossain, Kerverns Belfort, Bikash Jairu, Farukh Choudhary, Izu Azuka
Sunil Chhetri (BFC)
Edu Garcia (BFC)
Kervens Belfort (JFC)
Mehtab Hossain (JFC)
