95' HIGH! Malsawmzuala takes a shot from outside the box and the ball kisses the sky before going out of play. 
94' A cross whipped in by Jamshedpur FC but Sarthak Golui heads it away for a corner kick. 
93' Robin Singh is adjudged the 'Hero of the Match' for his two clinical strikes. 
92' Arques goes into the book for a rash challenge on Marko Stankovic. 
90' Wow, we have six minutes added here. Can Jamshedpur FC pull one or two back? In case you are wondering, it is because the referee went down in the second half and he needed medical attention.  
89' Jamshedpur FC are getting frustrated here and they are lobbing in meaningless long balls now. The mood in the camp is totally down now. 
88' FC Pune City make their final substitution.

ON- Rohit Kumar
OFF- Ian Hume
86' SHOT! Arques with a brilliant shot from outside the box but Kamaljit's perspicacious positiong parries away the danger. 
85' Sumeet Passi crosses in a low ball in the face of goal but there is absolutely no Jamshedpur FC player to smother it home. 
83' Man, that is a sight which we don't see everyday. Michael Soosairaj loses his footing and the ball goes out of play for a goalkick. 
80' FOUL! Soosairaj is having a rusty day tonight. Sarthak gets the better of him and the former Chennai City FC player brings him down inside the box. 
78' Double change for FC Pune City

OFF- Diego Carlos
ON- Jonathan Vila

OFF- Robin Singh
ON- Nim Dorjee Tamang
77' SHOT! Cido with a thunderous shot from just outside the box which goes agonizingly over the bar. It nicks the top netting in the process. That goal has buoyed their confidence.  
76' GOOOAAAAAAALL! Calvo pulls one back to make it 4-1. Kamaljit guesses right and dives to his right but the shot is way powerful and the venom beats the goalkeeper. 
75' PENALTY! Arques chips in a cross and it hits Martin Diaz's hands. Jamshedpur gets a penalty in the last fifteen minutes of the game. 
73' HANDBALL! A brilliant attack from Jamshedpur halts thanks to Cido's hands. Come on man, show some urgency!
70' GOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLL! And, it is FC Pune City 4-0 Jamshedpur. Who would have thought that?
Marcelinho goes past Farukh, who is not a natural defender, and lays it off for Ashique. The Keralite's rocket hits the inside of the bar before bulging the back of the net. 
65' GOOOOOOAAAAAAL! FC Pune City have made it 3-0 thanks to Ashique's trickery. He shimmies past three defenders and while we think that the ball has crossed the line for a goal kick, the replays confirm that the full ball hasn't crossed the line. He lays it off for Robin Singh who beats Subrata in the near post. 
62' Michael Soosairaj tries to run away in the left wing but Sarthak with a perfect tackle sees off the danger. 
59' SAVE! Robin Singh with a powerful shot from just inside the box but Subrata palms away the danger. 
57' And, Jamshedpur FC are making their third and final change.

OFF- Dhanachandra Singh
ON- Michael Soosairaj
53' Bang! Man, this is something which we don't see everyday. Memo just brings down the referee R Venkatesh and he needs medical attention now. What if he is unable to continue? Do we have a substitute referee?
52' Jamshedpur FC make their second change.

OFF- Augustin Fernandes
ON- Michael Soosairaj
50' GOOOOOOOAAAAAAA-OFFSIDE! Diego Carlos with a brilliantly angled side which rattles the back of the net. However, Robin Singh was offside. Although he didn't touch the ball that was a good decision as he blocked Subrata's vision. 
48' SHOT! No bodies forward for Cido to pass and he has to take a shot from distance. Comfortably collected by Kamaljit
46' SHOT! Ashique with a brilliant shot from the edge of the box and tell you what, that wasn't million miles away. 
45' PEEP! We are underway for an action-packed second half here at the JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur!
48' PEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEP! Jamshedpur FC are behind by two goals here at the JRD Tata Sports Complex. If there is a game which shows what can happen to you if you don't make use of your chance, this is this game. Jamshedpur FC should have made it 3-0 in the first fifteen minutes but instead it is FC Pune City who goes into the break with a 2-0 lead. 
47' GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLL! Once again, it is FC Pune City who have scored. And, it is from the counter. Ian Hume with his delicious vision finds Marcelinho who beats the keeper and make it 2-0.  
46' Augustin with a brilliant cross from the right wing but FC Pune City defenders head it away. Two minutes more to go in the first half. 
43' Possessions being exchanged among the teams in the midfield here. Both the sides need to come up with something creative if the fans want to see another goalmouth action. 
39' Three positions changed for Jamshedpur. Memo goes into the center of the defense, Augustin Fernandes goes into the fullback role and Malsawmzuala plays in the central midfield position. 
37' Robin Gurung is stretchered off as Jamshedpur makes their first change of the game.

OFF- Robin Gurung
ON- Malsawmzuala
36' FOUL! And, Robin Singh goes into the book now. The Punjabi lad just stamps his ankle on Robin Gurung who goes down twice in three minutes. 
33' FOUL! Marcelinho becomes the first one to go into the box for his two-footed tackle on Robin Singh. 
29' SHOT! A great ball from Marcelinho to Ian Hume who lays it off for his strike partner Robin Singh. Robin Gurung puts his long legs to full use to narrow down the angle and the resultant shot goes wide. 
27' BLOCK! Cido puts Farukh on the plate but his poor technique and Sahil Panwar's last ditch tackle ensures FC Pune City only have a corner to defend. 
23' Deflected off the wall. FC Pune City have a corner to defend. 
21' FOUL! Jamshedpur have a free-kick in a dangerous position. Adil Khan brings Cidoncha down with both his hands and Jamshedpur have a golden opportunity to make it 1-1. 
18' GOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL! And, guess what? It is FC Pune City who have taken the lead through Robin Singh. Diego Carlos with a powerful shot and Subrata Paul saves it. However, it falls in the path of Ian Hume who only shoots it straight to the post. The ball ricochets off to Robin who scores his second goal in consecutive matches. 
15' Man, we have a flurry of crosses and shots coming in from Jamshedpur forwards but the trio of Sahil Panwar, Sarthak Golui, and Martin Diaz rescues them with their powerful headers. 
13' WOODWORK! Jamshedpur FC is again close to make it 1-0. Arques powers in a brilliant shot which hits the woodwork. 
11' BLOCK! Calvo with a brilliant corner and Arques fires it on target. However, the ball hits Marko Stankovic and the hosts get another corner kick. Tell you what, Marko wasn't aware that the ball was going in. He was just standing there and didn't react whatsoever. 
10' SAVE! Carlos Calvo with a long-range shot but Kamaljit dives to his left and parries it away for corner-kick. 
8' BLOCK! Tiri with a brilliant intervention inside the penalty box as Ian Hume hammers his shot on target. If it weren't for the long legs of the Spaniard, FC Pune City would have been one goal ahead. 
6' INTERCEPTION! Ashique tries to wriggle his way through the JFC defense from the left flank but Farukh wins the ball. 
3' SHOT! Calvo bends his cross into the far post and Farukh just had to power it in from a hand-shaking distance. However, he fails to keep his shot on target. A huge opportunity missed by Jamshedpur FC. 
2' SHOT! Mario Arques with the first shot of the match from outside the box but the ball sails over the crossbar much to the delight of FC Pune City defense. 
1' KICKOFF! Let's Football as we are underway here at the JRD Tata Sports Complex!
There is a minute of silence observed here at the JRD Tata Sports Complex. The kickoff should be underway after that. 
Hands Shaken.
Photographs clicked.
Playing Eleven exchanged.
All formalities are over as we are set for kickoff!
The teams are out from the tunnel. FC Pune City are wearing their away white colors whereas Jamshedpur FC are wearing their traditional Reds
Jamshedpur FC will play in a 4-2-3-1 formation much like how the rest of the ISL teams play. Tiri and Augustin Fernandes will guard the heart of the defense whereas Dhanachandra Singh and Robin Gurung will protect the wings. Memo and Mario Arques will be the two defensive midfielders deployed to thwart the opposition's creativity. 

Watch out for Sergio Cidoncha and Farukh Chaudhary in the wings and Carlos Calvo in the hole. They should be a headache for the FC Pune City back three. Sumeet Passi will be the lone wolf upfront, trying to pounce on the loose balls and punish the opposition with his sublime finishing skills. 
Jamshedpur FC, on the other hand, have made three changes to the side that defeated Mumbai City FC 1-0. New signing Augustin Fernandes comes in for underperforming Pratik Chaudhary in the center-back position whereas Bikash Jairu sits out to make way for Sumeet Passi. 

Playmaker Carlos Calvo is back after serving a three-match suspension for his racial remark. Pablo Morgado has been sacrificed for the same. 
FC Pune City have made no changes to the side that held ATK 2-2. Sarthak Golui, Martin Diaz, and Sahil Panwar will play as a back-three whereas Adil Khan and Marko Stankovic will form a strong block in front of them. Diego Carlos and Ashique Kuruniyan will function as wingers whereas Marcelinho will exploit the hole in front of the defense. Robin Singh and Ian Hume will be the two strikers playing up front. 

Jamshedpur FC XI: Subrata Paul (GK), Robin Gurung, Tiri, Dhanachandra Singh, Augustin Fernandes, Mario Arques, Carlos Calvo, Memo, Farukh Choudhary, Sumeet Passi, Sergio Cidoncha

Subs: Rafique Ali, Karan Amin, Bikash Jairu, Malsawmzuala, Michael Soosairaj, Mobashir Rahman, Pablo Morgado

FC Pune City XI:

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the ISL encounter between Jamshedpur FC and FC Pune City to be played out at the JRD Tata Sports Complex here. My name is Abhishek Kundu and, I will be with you through the thick and thin of the action. The line-up should be out in any moment. 
The first team to score will not go empty handed!

Yes, you read that right. Both the teams have struggled to regain their composure once they are down and don't expect a brilliant comeback story to be written today. FC Pune City have gone on to lose 70% of the 10 encounters in which they have conceded first, winning just once.

Jamshedpur FC have only been behind 6 times but won the match once. However, in three out of the other five matches, they have shown enough persistence and grit to claw their way back and salvage a point. 

So, if FC Pune City scores first, you can expect Jamshedpur FC to retaliate and pull a goal or two back and eke out a point. However, if the Jharkhand-based team is the one to draw first blood, consider FC Pune City's hopes of playing in the semi-finals all but over! 
FC Pune City perform abysmally in the defense in the first half!

FC Pune City doesn't have a great track record when it comes to defending in the first half. They are the only side this season who have faced more than 100 goal attempts in the opening forty-five minutes of the game, averaging at 8.36 shots faced per match. Unsurprisingly, it has also resulted in them conceding 13 goals in 14 matches. Only bottom-placed Chennaiyin FC have conceded more goals in the first half, which amounts to 15. However, they have played out a match extra. 

So, don't be surprised if the Jamshedpur attack breaks the FC Pune City defense in the opening half itself!
Watch out for Jamshedpur FC scoring a goal or two from open play!

Jamshedpur FC have an equal distribution of goals from set pieces and open plays as they have scored 11 out of the 23 through the latter technique. FC Pune City, on the other hand, have conceded 17 goals from 14 matches through open play. The Stallions' poor stat can haunt them tonight as they only play with a back three, making their defense more vulnerable. 

FC Pune City have scored 12 goals from 14 matches through open play but a rock-solid Jamshedpur FC defense have only conceded 9 goals via that process in the tournament so far. 

As far as goals from set-pieces are concerned, Jamshedpur FC hold the upper hand here as well. They have scored 12 and the Stallions have conceded 7. FC Pune City have only scored 4 goals through set-pieces. 

FC Pune City are more viable to score through counter-attacks as they have utilized that tactic successfully seven times. However, the Jamshedpur FC defense is marshalled properly when they put their bodies forward as they have only conceded 3 goals so far. 
Jamshedpur FC have a brilliant home form!

Other than Bengaluru FC, Jamshedpur FC are the only team to remain unbeaten at home. They have won 4 out of their 7 matches, drawing the other three. Moreover, they have scored 13 goals in the process, averaging at 1.86 goals per game. They are also defensively more astute in home as they have only conceded 6 times, earning two clean sheets in the process. 

Given that the match is played in the Furnace, expect FC Pune City's qualifying hopes to end tonight!
Watch out for late goals!

Both Jamshedpur FC and FC Pune City likes to score after the 75th minute of the clock. The former has scored 7 out of their 23 goals in the last 15 minutes of the game while the latter has scored 5 of their 16 goals. This means that both Jamshedpur FC and FC Pune City have scored more than 30% of the goals after 75th minute. 

The Jharkhand-based team also likes to concede in the dying embers of the game. They have conceded 25% of the goal in the last 15 minutes of the game. FC Pune City, on the other hand, are sturdy in the dying embers of the game as they have let in only 3 of their 24 goals after the 75th minute. 

Remember, in their previous encounter, FC Pune City scored the winner in the 85th minute. So, don't turn off your idiot box as the game could witness a lot of late dramas!  
Repercussions of the match in the points table and the top 4 spot

Jamshedpur FC win- 
FC Pune City's hopes of making it to the top 4 will be mathematically over with their loss. Jamshedpur FC, will still be in the fifth position. But, with 26 points from 16 matches, the Jharkhand-based team would only be a point behind fourth-placed Mumbai City FC and five points ahead of the sixth placed ATK, having played equal number of matches.

Draw- It doesn't help either of the teams. FC Pune City will still be mathematically out of the contention for finishing inside the top 4 and Jamshedpur FC will be sandwiched between Mumbai City FC and ATK in the fifth spot, being five points adrift from both of them. Bengaluru FC, however, will be mathematically through to the playoffs. 

FC Pune City win- The Stallions will keep their playoff hopes mathematically alive although they would require other results to go in their favor if they really want to play in the semis. Jamshedpur's dream of finishing inside the top four will hit a massive roadblock and Mumbai City FC and ATK couldn't be much happier. In this case also, Bengaluru FC will become the first team to make it through to the playoffs. 
What happened the last time these two sides met?

FC Pune city locked horns with Jamshedpur FC on 21st November 2018 at the Balewadi Stadium in Pune. Diego Carlos' solo run from the halfway mark in the 5th minute gave the home side an early lead before Sumeet Passi leveled things up five minutes later courtesy of a beautiful curling cross from Carlos Calvo.

Just when it looked like the spoils would be shared, Matt Mills scored the winner in the 85th minute. The Englishman towered above the Jamshedpur defenders to nod in Marko Stankovic's well-taken free kick. The scoreline remained 2-1 in FC Pune City's favor as the Stallions got their first win of the campaign.  
Probable Line-ups

Jamshedpur Probable XI:
Subrata Paul (GK), Tiri (C), Pratik Chowdhary, Robin Gurung, Dhanachandra Singh, Bikash Jairu, Mario Arques, Memo, Jerry Mawhmingthanga, Sumeet Passi, Sergio Cidoncha

Pune City Probable XI: Kamaljit Singh (GK/C), Sarthak Golui, Martin Diaz, Sahil Panwar, Adil Khan, Marko Stankovic, Marcelo Pereira, Ashique Kuruniyan, Diego Carlos, Robin Singh, Iain Hume
Jamshedpur v Pune City ISL preview:

Jamshedpur FC's top four challenge faces a big test against FC Pune City at the JRD Tata Sports Complex on Saturday.

Jamshedpur are fifth on the table with 23 points in 15 games, 4 adrift of fourth-placed Mumbai City. Three points against Pune can add the pressure on Mumbai and NorthEast, who are both on 27 after playing 16 games. Pune City are seventh on the table with 15 off 14 matches.

Out of the two mid-table teams, only Jamshedpur can make the top 4. However, Pune City under new coach Phil Brown have really turned in decent performances.

Pune City held ATK 2-2, thanks to a wonderfully headed goal by Robin Singh. They beat Chennaiyin FC 2-1 with Marcelinho striking twice against the ISL holders.

Jamshedpur shocked Mumbai City 1-0 after the 1-2 defeat to ATK and 0-0 draw with FC Goa since the resumption of the ISL. Jamshedpur showed they are pretty solid in the defence during those performances against Mumbai and FC Goa with captain Tiri holding up the wall like a boss.

Against ATK, Jamshedpur could only helplessly watch as Manuel Lanzarote pumped two goals from free-kicks past Subrata Paul. Perhaps, Pune City will take a cue from that performance and try to outperform Jamshedpur off the dead ball situations.

Star striker Tim Cahill continues his recovery from injury and will miss the game.

Brown, the former Hull City coach, may not have Matt Mills up for selection. However, Marko Stankovic, Marcelinho and Iain Hume could be enough for Pune City to stifle their opposition.

Jamshedpur will rely on the creativity of Sergio Cidoncha to help them out against Pune City. Carlos Calvo will be available for selection after serving a 3-game suspension for alleged racist remarks against Delhi Dynamos' Gianni Zuiverloon. It remains to be seen if Cesar Ferrando will field Calvo or Pablo Morgado as the attacker against Pune City.

When and where to watch: The Jamshedpur v Pune City ISL Live game will be telecast on Star Sports Network. Live Streaming on Hotstar. The kick-off is at 7.30 pm IST.
