NorthEast United FC will face Jamshedpur FC in match 101 of the Indian Super League (ISL 2021-22) at the Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa. 

Khalid Jamil's NEUFC will be playing for pride. It has been a disappointing season for the Highlanders. They are tenth with 13 points from 18 games and have won just three matches. 

On paper, they are the underdogs, but if their last match is anything to go by, where they beat Bengaluru FC 2-1, Jamshedpur FC cannot afford to take them lightly. The return of Deshorn Brown, who scored against Bengaluru, will also be a boost for Khalid Jamil's men.
