Match 54 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees Jamshedpur FC take on Kerala Blasters FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco, Goa, on Sunday evening.
Jamshedpur will be looking to move back into the top four while Kibu Vicuna's men need a positive result after back-to-back losses. Owen Coyle's men come into this game unbeaten against Kerala Blasters, with two wins and four draws in six games. They have also scored 10 goals against the same opponents and will be looking to get in the scoresheet again.
The Blasters, meanwhile, are still struggling to get off the bottom and have picked up just six points from nine games. Following their 4-2 defeat to Odisha FC, Blasters will hope to show an improvement against a side that beat Bengaluru FC in their previous encounter.
