With nothing but pride to play for, Jamshedpur FC and Bengaluru FC will lock horns in the Indian Super League (ISL) on Thursday.

Jamshedpur FC are sixth in the standings with 24 points from 19 games. Despite possessing a squad capable of finishing in the top four, the Red Miners have been inconsistent throughout the 2020-21 ISL. A draw or a win today will enable Jamshedpur FC to finish sixth, but a loss will see them drop down to seventh spot.

Bengaluru FC have also flattered to deceive in the ongoing edition of the ISL. The Blues, who parted ways with Carles Cuadrat midway through the season, are currently managed by interim head coach Naushad Moosa. Bengaluru FC are currently seventh in the table with 22 points from 19 matches, and a win on Thursday will see them leapfrog Jamshedpur FC into the sixth spot.
