The CFC vs JFC match preview –
The defending champions of the Hero Indian Super League are Chennaiyin FC and they will be taking on Jamshedpur FC to play a game in the regular season on Sunday.
Chennaiyin FC have seen their performances and classification in the table take a nosedive. They are currently ninth in the league and have only one win in seven games. The entire formation has been tweaked, and every single player has been rotated around. Still, the team is not able to perform at the level which is expected from them. The blame has to be assigned to coach Joseph Gregory as it is his ideologies which have seen this team struggle while playing football.
Meanwhile, Jamshedpur FC suffered their first ever defeat of the season. A team who were known for their defensive solidity, they made two mistakes causing them to lose out. These are the kind of lapses of concentration that cause people games and maybe it was a required lesson for the side. The side will bounce back strongly to show they are still a contender in this competition.

CFC vs JFC Dream 11 Team Predictions-
We have taken only the goal-scorers in our team as the likes of Arques, Soosairaj and Passi are refined players for Jamshedpur FC. Same can be said for Chennaiyin FC’s Raphael Augusto and Gregory Nelson.
If in the case Salom starts instead of Jeje Lalpekhlua, this team will fetch us some good points.
