Chennaiyin FC will take on Jamshedpur FC in match five of Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 at Tilak Maidan, Goa on Tuesday.

Jamshedpur, which joined the league in 2017, is yet to make the playoffs and will be desperately seeking a reversal of fortunes. Chennaiyin, on the other hand, will be looking to start off from where it left last season, having qualified for the finals. This season, however, CFC will be missing former coach Owen Coyle, who has signed up for a stint with the Red Miners.

New Chennaiyin coach Csaba Laszlo is likely to use a 4-2-3-1 formation given the squad at his disposal. Coyle loves to play an attacking style of football and will look to make use of the “springy” 4-2-3-1 as well.

 

A late call will be taken on the inclusion of Jamshedpur’s forward Nick Fitzgerald (Australia) and defender Stephen Eze (Nigeria), after the duo joined training only last Wednesday.
