JFC vs MPFC Result
After starting out in I-League Division 2 in the 2015/16 season and finishing at a lowly ninth position in I-League 2016/17 campaign, Minerva Punjab emerged as the surprise package of 2017/18 season and defied all odds to clinch their first ever I-League title, achieving the feat in only their second season in the country’s top flight. In the process, Minerva also became the first North Indian team to lift the trophy since 1996. As a result, the Ludhiana-based club will head into the Hero Super Cup 2018 as one of the favourites and will be high on confidence.
Jamshedpur FC, on the other hand, endured a mixed debut campaign in the Indian Super League (ISL) as they played out numerous goalless draws to finish fifth in the points table, missing out on the coveted Top 4 places by a whisker to FC Pune City. Steve Coppell and his team will certainly be the underdogs in this matchup against Minerva but they have shown that they can be a tough nut to crack for most sides and will again rely on their watertight defence to progress in the tournament.
MPFC vs JFC Result Prediction – Our Minerva Punjab vs Jamshedpur FC Result prediction is that a closely contested 1-1 draw might be on the cards between these two clubs.

Minerva Punjab’s Kamalpreet Singh reflects on I-League winning season, wants to keep his feet firmly grounded
Minerva Punjab’s fairytale run to capture the I-League title in their maiden season in the top-flight has captured the imagination of every Indian football lover. What was even more impressive in Minerva’s title win was the fact that it was achieved on a shoe-string budget compared to the dominant and established forces in the league, and with a squad brimming with youngsters brought up through the academy.
One such 20-year-old is Kamalpreet Singh, the right-back who was a constant in the Punjab side’s dream campaign. He played a part in all 18 games played by the Ranjit Bajaj-owned side, starting in all but two of them.
A Punjab native, Kamalpreet says it was a training camp in Germany which made him want to pursue football as a profession ardently.
“I first started playing football back in my village. That’s where I developed a liking for the game. Then one day, I underwent trials at the Chandigarh Football Academy (CFA) which was a very renowned institution at the time. I got selected by the academy,” he told Goal.
“With the academy in the first year, we went to Germany for a camp where I got to see real discipline and professional footballers up close. That’s when the bug of wanting to make it as a professional footballer struck me.”
A trusted lieutenant of coach Khogen Singh on the pitch, the right-back, along with skipper Sukhdev Singh, played the most number of minutes amongst Indian players in the Minerva side during the campaign. While the title win came on the final day in a dramatic finish, it provided the chance for the side to prove a lot of people wrong.
“First match we played against Mohun Bagan and drew against them. Then after that we had three wins in a row at home but people were still calling it a fluke at that point. They all said it wouldn’t last and it was just the start of the league. Very soon we would fade away according to them,” Kamalpreet said.
Having represented India in three age-groups already, it might not be too long before Kamalpreet is knocking on the doors for Stephen Constantine’s senior India side. He, however, is keeping his feet firmly planted on the ground for now.
“I would obviously love to play for the Indian senior team one day. But right now, I need to improve a lot as a defender first. Then, who knows,” he said before signing off.
