Jamshedpur FC vs Army Green Durand Cup Prediction
Army Green were impressive as a unit against FC Goa but falted in front of goal due to individual errors. Jamshedpur FC have brought in several Tata Football Academy (TFA) graduates who might find it difficult to match the physicality of the military side. Army Green might just edge out the ISL side in this game.
Prediction: Jamshedpur FC 1-2 Army Green
