The MCFC vs JFC match preview –
In the Indian Super League, Mumbai City FC vs Jamshedpur FC will be taking on place on Tuesday, what will be the first game of either team in season V.
Mumbai City FC had a mediocre season last time out. Missing out on qualifying position for the playoffs, the team made wholesale changes in the pre-season. It is expected that this team will be doing better in 2018/19 under the management of Jorge Costa. The team needed a manager who was a hard man, and would discipline the players if it was required. Complacency is no longer going to be a factor for The Islanders.
On the other hand, Jamshedpur FC had a decent outing in their first ever season in the Indian Super League. They were the team most of the sides in this competition didn’t want to face. It was difficult to play against them, and the Men of Steel have carried on with that winning formula here as well. With the help of some important signings in the attacking department, Jamshedpur FC looks a stronger team than the last season.

Gambling India Info Match Prediction Mumbai City FC vs Jamshedpur FC –
Given how many changes Mumbai City FC has made, we believe they are the favourites to win this game.
Mumbai City FC- Ranbir Kapoor backed team will look to start afresh once again this ISL season after appointing a new head coach in Jorge Costa. The Islanders have made into playoffs only once in the past 4 seasons and after investing heavily in the recruitment of new players, Mumbai will be hoping to at least finish in the top-4 this season.
Team – Mumbai has released their 25-man squad for the ISL 2018-19 season, and it boasts quite a big number of new players. Subhasish Bose and Anwar Ali, have been added as a much-needed defensive reinforcement to give support to the talented Lucian Goian. While Souvik Chakrabarti, Raynier Fernandes, Milan Singh, Modou Sougou, Paulo Machado and Matias Mirabaje all have been brought in to shore up the midfield.
Pre-season – Mumbai traveled to Thailand to get into the groove. They played 4 games against the Thai teams, winning three and drawing the other one. So the Islanders are in good nick heading into this game.
Jamshedpur FC- Arguably, the biggest name in the ISL 2018-19 season is the Socceroos’ former Everton playmaker Tim Cahill. However, the former Millwall man is suspended for this game as he is serving the 3-game ban imposed by English FA for his violent conduct against Fulham.
Team – It was a decent first campaign for Jamshedpur FC who finished their league campaign at a respectable 5th position. The team has gone through a major overhaul with their last season’s coach Steve Coppell getting replaced by Spanish Caser Ferrando. JFC have lost some of their key players to their rivals, namely, Anas Edathodika to Kerala Blasters and Souvik Chakrabarti to Mumbai City FC, but they have added some talented young players like Sumeet Passi, Farukh Choudhary, Jerry, Robin Gurung, Bikash Jairu and Raju Gaikwad to their ranks. Along with Cahill, JFC have added four other foreign players to their ranks – Mario Arques, Pablo Margao, Carlos Calvo and Sergio Cidoncha.
