Bengaluru are hoping to sneak into the top six places with a crucial victory against Odisha. However, it will be easier said than done with Odisha highly motivated about a chance to finish in the top two places. The Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore will be the location for this Indian Super League encounter. Even though Bengaluru are an incredible 14 points behind Odisha in the table, things could be very close on the pitch for this encounter.

Bengaluru FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Bengaluru are unbeaten in the last six games at home

The club have put together three consecutive home victories in the ISL 

Reasons to be fearful

Bengaluru will feel a lot of pressure with several teams competing for the sixth place

The recent game against Odisha was a big disappointment for Bengaluru

Bengaluru are in an excellent position when it comes to making a push for the top six places. After having been highly inconsistent throughout the campaign, the team finally showed improvements on this front with six consecutive home games without a defeat. Coach Gerard Zaragoza will be looking to make the most of their home form with two of the next three matches at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium.

Star man – Javi Hernandez

Javi Hernandez is looking to get his first goals since the effort against Kerala Blasters at the start of March. The 34-year-old is up to 5 goals for the campaign and his recent performances have been very consistent. Hernandez will be looking to prove a point against his former club – for whom he scored six goals in 19 matches.

Odisha FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Odisha have lost only once in the recent five away league matches

Odisha picked up three goals in the last game against Bengaluru

Reasons to be fearful

Odisha have only managed one win in the last four league matches

The club has been without a win in the last three matches in all competitions

Odisha are looking to jump back into the top two places even if they have to depend on the results from other teams. The club are one point behind Goa who have played a game more. Meanwhile, the Odisha outfit are four points behind Mohun Bagan heading into this fixture. Sergio Lobera does not have to worry about any injury problems in his squad, but he does have a poor win ratio against Bengaluru after only managing four wins out of 11.

Star man – Roy Krishna

Roy Krishna is undoubtedly the man to watch in this fixture. The top scorer in the Indian Super League for the current campaign, Roy Krishna has hit 12 goals already. Even though the AFC games did not provide a lot of joy for the veteran, Roy Krishna can come up with the goods even with half chances.

Bengaluru might not have been confident about getting anything out of this match a few months ago. However, the dynamics have changed dramatically for Gerard Zaragoza and his team. Bengaluru has an excellent mentality on home soil and they are likely to be a decent match for Odisha, whose momentum appears to be lacking for the last few games.
