Match 85 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees Jamshedpur FC take on SC East Bengal at the Fatorda Stadium in Margoa, Goa, on Sunday evening.
SC East Bengal will be without manager Robbie Fowler when they take on Jamshedpur FC in Sunday's double header. Fowler's side haven't won a single game in their last five and come into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat against Bengaluru FC. It'll be interesting to see how the Red and Golds cope without having their manager on the sidelines.
Jamshedpur FC, meanwhile, snapped up Boris Singh from ATK Mohun Bagan during the winter transfer window, and are desperate for a good string of results if they are to make it to the semis. The team has failed to achieve consistency throughout the season and have attacking problems of their own, having scored just 14 goals in 15 games.

We predict a 1-1 draw.
