CFC vs JFC Match Preview
When Chennaiyin FC went 2-0 up past the half-hour mark through Petar Siliskovic grabbing his first goal for the club in ISL and El Khatayati rippling the net to give Mumbai City FC a disadvantage early in the game, few could have predicted the home side will capitulate from there is such a dramatic fashion. Jorge Pereyra Diaz of the Islanders pulled one back right after Chennaiyin’s second leading to five others taking their turn to dismantle the home side. It was a hard watch for manager Thomas Bradaric to see the ruthlessness of the guests as almost every chance created by them ended in the back of the net. The Marina Machans had no clue of the situation and their desperate attempt to come back in the game failed. Their too much reliance on protecting the back cost the team last weekend. Taking on Jamshedpur FC in the next match, Chennaiyin FC will hope to be more assured of their approach in games even though the Men of Steels are themselves struggling. The defeat was catastrophic in the result of the match but not on their position in the chart. Only three points separate them from the top three in this tight table and a win could change the tide again. Chennaiyin FC have never lost a home game in this fixture winning the last one 4-1 and drawing the rest. They have shared wins in the four games played over two seasons in the bio bubble although lost heavily in the last meeting to Jamshedpur FC. Thomas Bradaric will be urging his players to earn three crucial points in this clash to start their climb up the table.
Only one win so far this season and that too against last-placed NorthEast united does not seem fitting for Jamshedpur FC who went on to win the ISL Winner’s Shield last season. A shadow of that side now, Adrian Boothroyd’s side is struggling for inspiration to bring momentum in their steps which will help them move away from the bottom half of the standings. In the defeat to Hyderabad FC, the Men of Steels looked out of plan again and could not make the most of the three shots they managed on target. It was their third loss of the campaign all coming against the present top-four holders while the 1-1 draw against Mumbai City last month could be docked as an off day for the opposition. But Jamshedpur FC have to create solutions to turn their season around. Not managing to strike the net alongside their collapse at the back shows the forwards have stopped combining as they did in the first three games. Daniel Chima has gone three games without scoring with Harry Swayer also failing to show his link-up play. The manager has to find out a way to get them firing again. The Nigerian has done business when his team faced Chennaiyin last time in the massive 4-1 win earlier this year and could use this match to cut his goal-drought short. The Red Miners have not moved from their ninth spot, wishing to do that with a victory against the Marina Machans. That will be their first at this ground having collected only two points in three meetings against the home team.
