The Indian Super League action continues at a frenetic pace and Thursday's match between Jamshedspur and Northeast United looks set to be another closely fought contest. Both teams have had mixed starts to the season and will be wanting to start climbing the table. The home side finds themselves in sixth position in the current standings, but know that a win here could take them as high as joint top. For Northeast United they currently occupy 10th spot and need a win to bridge the gap to those above them.
Both teams arrive in this contest looking to reverse their current form, as both teams have only been able to win once in their last five matches respectively. Jamshedpur got off to a hot start but with their current run of poor form, they have tumbled down the table. It's a testament to how competitive the league is that a win here could take them back to joint top of the league. They arrive at this match without a win in their last three and will need to turn around their home form where they have only won one of their last five home games.
However, they do face a side that has lost their last four away contests and they must be confident they can get a win here. In order for Northeast United to produce a shock they will need to keep things tighter at the back as currently, they boast the league's second-worst defensive record. It could be a tall order for them though, and the smart play has to be on Jamshedpur to claim an essential victory.
Over 2.5 goals
When it comes to backing the over or under 2.5 goal market it’s a really tricky market to gauge but we will take a chance on the under 2.5 goals. Jamshedpur has seen over 2.5 goals take place in two of their last five matches but for Northeast United, they have seen over 2.5 goals happen in three of their last five which includes their last two.
When these sides square off, over 2.5 goals has only been exceeded twice out of their last five head to head clashes and with both of these sides in desperate need of a win, we think this could be a tight and cagey affair and think the under 2.5 goal market has to be the way to go.
Both teams to score
Backing whether both teams will find the back of the net is another tough call. Jamshedpur has seen the feat happen twice in their last five whilst Northeast United have seen it happen in three of their last five. In the head to head contests between the pair, both teams have scored in three of the last five games. With North East United holding a pretty poor defensive record, we are going to back both teams to find the back of the net, particularly as the away side have scored in four of their last five away matches.
