Jamshedpur FC vs Hyderabad FC: Team News
Antonio Irondo would be hoping to take the Jamshedpur FC side into the playoffs and that would require a consistent performance from the squad throughout the tournament.
Bikash Jairu was shown a red card in the last match and CK Vineeth should be replacing the 28-year old if he is deemed fit for the match.
Jitendra Singh and Narender Gehlot should be getting their first starts of the season as Aitor Monroy would move to his natural holding midfield position after playing as a centre back in the first match.
Phil Brown has a huge task on his hand as the Englishman needs to boost his team's morale after their drubbing against ATK. It is to be seen whether he makes a lot of changes to the starting XI or retains his trust in the experienced squad players.
Marko Stankovic should be drafted straight into the starting XI as the defense needs a better screening and the Austrian midfielder would also help in creating more chances.
Nikhil Poojary could make way for Laldanmawia Ralte as the Mizoram-born forward impressed after coming off the bench in the last match.

Hyderabad FC Wins (As FC Pune City): 4
The Red Miners have lost all four of their matches against FC Pune City in the Indian Super League. Given how they have failed to make the play-offs in both the seasons, a point or two would have given their chances of making it to the knockout rounds a huge boost.
Although, FC Pune City have rebranded themselves as Hyderabad FC, Jamshedpur fans would be looking for some revenge when they host Phil Brown's side on Tuesday.
Jamshedpur FC vs Hyderabad FC: Key Players
Subrata Pal is one of the most experienced goalkeepers in the league and has an amazing defense protecting his goal. The defense is led by the experienced Tiri along with the talented youngster Narender Gehlot.
Marcelinho has been the key player for FC Pune City for a couple of seasons now. On his day, the Brazilian can take the match away from any opposition. Adil Khan would be shileding the fragile Hyderabad FC defense and would be hoping to initiate a few attacks as well.
Jamshedpur FC vs Hyderabad FC: Predictions
Jamshedpur FC has never won a match against Hyderabad FC (FC Pune City) and there cannot be a better opportunity to change that, given the state of the team's morale after the loss to ATK.
Goals galore in the match as two brilliant attacks come up against unsettled defenses, Jamshedpur might just edge it with the crowd behind them.
