ISL 2020-21: Jamshedpur FC (JFC) will be looking for a winning start to their India Super League 2020 (ISL) campaign when they face Chennaiyin FC in their opening fixture of ISL season 7 at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Goa.
The fixture promises to be an intriguing narrative with Owen Coyle, who led Chennaiyin to the final last season, joining Jamshedpur FC this season. Last season’s Golden Boot winner Nerijus Valskis, too, has moved from Chennaiyin to Jamshedpur.
Chennaiyin, on the other hand, have replaced Coyle with Hungarian Csaba Laszlo, and have undertaken somewhat of a rebuild, with five new foreigners in the squad this season.
