ISL football returns to Fatorda after almost a month as FC Goa entertain Jamshedpur FC in a clash of two teams who have had an excellent start to the season.

Before the international break, Goa bounced back from two successive draws with a comfortable 4-2 win over Mumbai City FC, while Jamshedpur were pegged back in a 3-1 loss to ATK, on a stormy Kolkata night.

Going into this game, Goa are 3rd and Jamshedpur 5th in the early ISL standings, and Bengaluru FC's 1-0 win over Kerala Blasters has meant the defending champions have put themselves right back in the reckoning near the top of the table. So, it is imperative for these two teams that they keep up with the pace-setters.

Sergio Lobera finally has a fully-fit squad to choose from, after missing the likes of Edu Bedia and Hugo Boumous at different points in the first four games. Lobera is likely to revert to his tried and tested combination, which would see Manvir Singh drop to the bench and Brandon Fernandes reverting to a role on the left-wing.

Edu Bedia will play behind Coro, and along with Brandon and Seiminlen Doungel, they will look to provide the ammunition for the ISL's all-time top-scorer.

Jamshedpur, meanwhile, are still nursing their talisman Piti, who suffered a hamstring injury in their last game before the international break - a 3-1 defeat in Kolkata against ATK. If he's fit enough to start, it is unlikely that Antonio Iriondo will make any changes to his side.


FC Goa v Jamshedpur FC: Probable lineups

FC Goa: Mohammad Nawaz, Seriton Fernandes, Mourtada Fall, Carlos Pena, Mandar Rao Desai, Ahmed Jahouh, Lenny Rodrigues, Edu Bedia, Jackichand Singh, Brandon Fernandes, Ferran Corominas

Jamshedpur FC: Subrata Paul, Robin Gurung, Memo, Tiri, Keegan Pereira, Aitor Monroy, Piti, Mobashir Rahman, Isaac Vanmalsawma, Farukh Choudhary, Sergio Castel
