Super Cup 2019: FC Goa vs Jamshedpur FC | Match Preview, Predicted Line-ups and Live Streaming Details
- Can FC Goa topple Jamshedpur FC to progress in the Super Cup 2019?
FC Goa is coming into the Super Cup with the regret of losing out in the ISL final. After a season full of interesting and attacking football, they had to bow their heads to Bengaluru FC.
However, The Gaurs will be looking at Super Cup as an opportunity to win a cup after this well-deserved season. FC Goa, who reached the quarters after defeating Indian Arrows (3-1) are not taking the Super Cup lightly.
They have most of their key players in the squad including Ferran Coro and Edu Bedia. Sergio Lobera would be aiming to win the match at the usual Goan style with Coro attacking at the front.
Jamshedpur FC finished fifth in the ISL, for a second consecutive time. The team would be disappointed at the finish, even after impressive individual and team efforts.
The fans too were outstanding for JFC, but couldn't be fairly rewarded in both the seasons. Hence, Jamshedpur too will need to make the maximum use of the Super Cup.
Cesar Ferrando will want his midfield to take up the responsibilities of taking the team to the semi-finals.
Jamshedpur FC will have a strong challenge coming up from the Goan half which will have to be dealt with the pace and skill of Indian players like Michael Soosairaj and Jerry Mawihmingthanga.
