Kerala Blasters might have opened the season with back-to-back wins over Bengaluru and Jamshedpur but they have been unable to get a positive result in the last two matches. A run of just one point from a possible six has led to Kerala Blasters falling to 4th place in the table.

Odisha are already out of the top six places following a weak start to the season. Despite starting the campaign with a victory over Chennaiyin, the team has been defensively exposed in a string of matches including the recent 3-2 loss to Goa.

Kerala Blasters will be looking to put the higher energy levels to good use when they go up against Odisha on October 27. Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi will be the location for this Indian Super League match.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

  • Reasons to be cheerful
  • Kerala Blasters have scored in all league matches
  • Daniel Farooq is in excellent form
  • Reasons to be fearful
  • No wins in the last two matches
  • Kerala Blasters have had to chase in consecutive matches

Kerala Blasters opened the season with wins over Bengaluru and Jamshedpur. Since then, the team has experienced a big downturn with the loss against Mumbai City and draw with NorthEast United. Kerala Blasters will be counting heavily on the upcoming home match to get back to winning ways.

Last season, Kerala Blasters had the joint-best home record with seven wins from the 10 matches. Coach Ivan Vukomanovic, though, might be missing a number of players coming into the game due to injuries and suspensions. Milos Drincic is unavailable because of a red card suspension. Meanwhile, the players on the treatment table include Marko Leskovic, Jaushua Sotirio, Jeakson Singh, and Aibanbha Dohling.

Star man – Adrian Luna

Adrian Luna had a brilliant start to the season after scoring in the first two games for Kerala Blasters. Since then, he has not been on the scoresheet. All eyes will be on the Uruguayan as he tries to rediscover his scoring touch against a defensively poor Odisha outfit.

Odisha FC Preview

  • Reasons to be cheerful
  • Odisha have been very good going forward
  • The team has shown positivity in set-piece situations

  • Reasons to be fearful
  • The squad could be a little tired after the midweek match
  • There have been too many defensive headaches for Odisha

Odisha have taken four points from the first three matches. However, the team will be able to jump several places in the league table when they travel to the southern city of Kochi on October 27. The massive 6-1 victory over Maziya is likely to provide the team with a great deal of confidence, while also being a selection headache for Sergio Lobera.

Coach Sergio Lobera has a spectacular record against Kerala Blasters with seven wins in his eight matches. The 46-year-old has never lost to this opponent. He also does not have any injury concerns coming into the game. This should result in a sizeable number of changes compared to the midweek game.

Star man – Jerry Mawihmingthanga

Jerry Mawihmingthanga scored in his first two games for Odisha. The 26-year-old has started in all of the three league matches for the club. He was not on the squad for the AFC Cup match in the midweek. There is a strong possibility that the better energy levels for the winger are likely to result in a strong performance.

Kerala Blasters are counting on home advantage to get them back to winning ways. The team has been exceptionally well in front of their supporters. Last season, there were just three home defeats for Kerala Blasters, who have managed consecutive victories at home against this opponent.

Odisha also are going up against a very poor head-to-head record against Kerala Blasters in recent times. Over the last five meetings between the two clubs, Odisha have only managed one victory – achieved at home just a year ago.
