Matchday five of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees Jamshedpur FC take on Chennaiyin FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco, Goa, on Tuesday.
This is a special game for Owen Coyle as he leads Jamshedpur against his former side Chennaiyin and also for Nerijus Valskis, last season's joint top-scorer in the ISL, who followed Coyle to the Red Miners. ISL 2019-20 runners-up Chennaiyin FC will be aiming to make an instant impact and establish their credentials as title contenders early on. The two sides have met six times in the ISL, with Chennaiyin winning twice, Jamshedpur coming out on top once, and the rest ending in draws.
