Jamshedpur vs Mumbai City Predictions


Mumbai City's season has unravelled in recent weeks and they are now in danger of missing out on the AFC Champions League spot that comes with finishing top.

Jamshedpur need to win big if they are to keep their slim finals hopes alive. They need a win and a miracle, and that could lead to goals on Saturday despite the Men of Steel's struggles on the goalscoring front.

  • Jamshedpur have seen BTTS in their last 3 matches against Mumbai City (Indian Super League).
  • Mumbai City have seen BTTS in their last 6 matches (Indian Super League).
  • Mumbai City have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches (Indian Super League).
  • Mumbai City have seen over 5.5 goals in their last 2 matches (Indian Super League).

Head to Head


Jamshedpur lead the head to head 3-2 with two draws from seven previous clashes with Mumbai City. 

Mumbai are unbeaten in the last three, having won both games last season with back-to-back 2-1 victories and drawn 1-1 earlier this campaign.

Nerijus Valskis opened the scoring for Jamshedpur and Bartholomew Ogbeche equalised - all within the first 15 minutes.

Jamshedpur Form


Jamshedpur are clinging onto the thinnest of threads when it comes to their chances of making the playoffs.

Owen Coyle's side need to win their remaining two games and pray for a miracle if they are to finish in the top four.

A 1-0 defeat to ATK Mohun Bagan on Sunday has all but ended Jamshedpur's hopes.

They had kept the dream alive by winning two of the previous three games with 1-0 wins over bottom of the table Odisha and Chennaiyin.

But they also lost 2-1 defeat to East Bengal in the last four matches.

Jamshedpur Team News


Jamshedpur need goals and a win, so expect top scorer Nerijus Valskis to return to the starting line-up.

David Grande may be the one to make way, while Nick Fitzgerald could come into contention for a start.

Mumbai City Form


Mumbai City have lost top spot in the ISL after one win in their last five matches.

Sergio Lobera's side were beaten for only the third time this season when going down 4-2 to Bengaluru on Monday.

The Islanders conceded in the opening minute and Cleiton Silva got a second 22 minutes in. 

Adam Le Fondre scored twice for Mumbai, but two goals from Sunil Chhetri sealed the points for Bengaluru.

Mumbai have also lost to NorthEast United during their recent run, and drawn with Chennaiyin and Goa.

Their only win came with a 2-1 success over Kerala Blasters.

Mumbai City Team News


Mumbai City will once again be without influential midfielder Hugo Boumous through suspension. Cy Goddard will continue to deputise. 

In the hunt to turn around their form, forward Bartholomew Ogbeche could be handed a starting role.
