38' - GOAL! Piti makes no error from that penalty kick. Such calmness from the midfielder. He takes a good run towards the ball and waits for Rehenesh to dive on one side and easily dinks the ball in the centre to put Jamshedpur FC in the lead.

23' - CHANCE! What an opportunity that for Jamshedpur FC. Brilliant work Narender Gahlot on the left to pass a delicious ball at the goalmouth for Farukh Choudhary. But there was just a little bit more zing behind the ball and Farukh just could not connect with the ball. Just a toe at the ball there would have seen it at the back of the net.

4' - Brilliant work from Seityasen on the left flank and he delivers a perfect cross in the middle for Mario Arques but he jumps a little too early and weakly heads the ball straight into the hands of Subrata Paul. Arques should have scored from there!

The concentration in the latter part of matches have let Kerala Blasters down. Though Raphael Bouli has shone in attack of late, the absence of Bartholomew Ogbeche will weaken their frontline which has not exactly been on fire. The Men in Yellow have scored just six goals which is the second-lowest in the league. But the return of influential midfielder Mario Arques will be a relief for Schattorie, though it is unsure if he will be fit enough to start.



Jamshedpur FC, on the other hand, have shown fighting spirit and tactical flexibility in plenty so far. They love having the ball but are equally deadly on the counter, thanks to the pace they have on the wings. The likes of Farukh Chowdhury, CK Vineeth and Aniket Jadhav have all impressed down the wings. However, the absence of star striker Sergio Castel and midfielder Piti is bound to affect the team's gameplan and come as a relief of sorts to Kerala.
