RECAP OF YESTERDAY
There were the frills, four clear goal opportunities, and a multitude of half-chances, but the defending champion Bengaluru FC had to be content with a goalless draw against NorthEast United FC in its opening Indian Super League campaign at Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru.
Despite a slow start, the Highlanders gave a fright to the host through Uruguay’s Martin Chaves Garcia and Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan to walk away with a point from the Fortress.

Jamshedpur has had two head coaches in the last two seasons and both of them employed their own style of play at the club. Now as Spaniard Antonio Iriondo takes over, supporters can expect an attacking philosophy.
Jamshedpur also had departures to deal with as Spanish duo Mario Arques and Sergio Cidoncha joined Kerala Blasters FC.
However, it has boosted its strike force with C. K. Vineeth, who is the third-highest Indian goalscorer in the ISL. It has also replaced the outgoing foreigners with Francisco ‘Piti’ Luna and Noe Acosta while managing to retain star players Memo and Tiri.

Josep Gombau’s Delhi Dynamos only managed an eighth-placed finish but his team had a certain vigour packed into the football it played. Delhi Dynamos has now moved to Bhubaneshwar and has rebranded itself as Odisha FC.
Gombau will be looking to continue his project with the young squad at his disposal to deliver better results on the pitch.
Delhi’s star winger Lallianzuala Chhangte has left for Chennaiyin FC but the presence of Daniel Lalhlimpuia, Jerry Mawhmingthanga and Nandhakumar Sekar in the forward line will help Odisha pose a threat on the break. Full season preview: Odisha FC - A new name, a new home, a new season
Gombau’s team likes to keep the ball, and against Jamshedpur, it is up against a team that also loves to hog possession.
