The seventh Pre-Quarter match of Super Cup takes place at the Kalinga Stadium of Bhubaneswar as Jamshedpur FC comes off against Churchill Brothers on Tuesday evening, 2nd April.

Jamshedpur FC would be in a dismal phase after their second consecutive fifth-place finish in the ISL. While JFC failed to qualify for the ISL semi-finals by 4 points last season, the margin was reduced to 2 this year. However, the continuous performances without the final glam would be affecting the club morale. Super Cup would be an opportunity to rectify their mistakes and clear out the pity errors earlier this season. Cesar Ferrando would be confident enough to pull up a tough challenge after promising shows toward the end of the last month. Future prospects like Michael Soosairaj would be additional rewards for the manager to utilize at the Super Cup.

Churchill Brothers would be the most improved team from this I-League season. The club from Goa escaped relegation last season by surprise. However, they regrouped to give some bigger names of the league a hard time. Churchill ended the season at the 4th place on the table, with 34 points. The team worked well with sync under Romanian manager Petre Gigiu, who made the maximum use of players like Willis Plaza. Coming into the Super Cup, Churchill Brothers would be aiming at something high close to the final. With the potential the team possess, Churchill can easily reach the semi-finals if they get past this initial Jamshedpur wall.
