Match 58 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees FC Goa take on Jamshedpur FC at the Fatorda Stadium in Margoa, Goa, on Thursday evening.
Jamshedpur FC have a chance to climb above FC Goa on the ISL table with a win on Thursday. Goa have the upper hand, having beat Jamshedpur earlier in the season. The Guars also enjoy a superior head-to-head record, winning four, losing two, and drawing one of their previous seven encounters.
However, Owen Coyle’s men will be eager to make amends and replace Goa in the top four. Meanwhile, Goa will be keen to pick up a win after a disappointing draw against SC East Bengal the last time around. A resilient side, Goa have won nine points – more than any side in the league – after conceding the first goal of the match.

Prediction: Both these sides are favourites to finish in the top four, however, lack of consistency remains a problem for both. FC Goa have the superior head-to-head record, and might just be able to get another win over the Red Miners.
We predict a 2-1 win to FC Goa.
