East Bengal are hoping to break a long-standing unbeaten run for Odisha when the two teams meet each other at the Kalinga Stadium. The neighbouring states have picked up some impressive results but they are situated at the opposite ends of the table. Odisha are looking to enhance their bid at the top of the table while East Bengal are pushing to get into the top six.

Odisha FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Odisha are unbeaten in the last 12 league matches

The home team have not lost to East Bengal in more than three years

Reasons to be fearful

Odisha have been disjointed in attack over the last two games

Odisha have come up with only one goal in the last two games

Odisha have reasons to be concerned about coming into the home match against East Bengal. Apart from the team having just two games before heading into the AFC Cup double-header against Central Coast Mariners, the team also has to rediscover the scoring touch. The front three might have been immensely successful over the season with 28 goals from the 16 matches to put Odisha top of the scoring charts, but they have scored only one goal in the last two games.

Star man – Roy Krishna

Roy Krishna is the top scorer in the Odisha squad by a huge margin. After having found the back of the net on 11 occasions so far this season, he is the first choice to expect a big performance from the game. Roy Krishna did not have much impact against Mohun Bagan but he is likely to get back on the scoring sheet once again.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

There have been two wins in the last three games for East Bengal

East Bengal have picked up two clean sheets in these victories

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have not been creating too many chances

The club has failed to beat Odisha in more than three years

East Bengal are hopeful of the recent run of wins against Hyderabad and Chennaiyin coming to help the team in the efforts to get into the top six. East Bengal will be on the road in three of the next four games. Even though it is a tough one for the team with matches against Odisha and Goa coming up, it is very likely that the team would submit a decent run. Jordan Elsey is out with a cruciate ligament tear while José Antonio Pardo has an ankle injury.

Star man – Nandhakumar Sekar

Nandhakumar Sekar has moved up to five goals for the season after his deflected effort against Chennaiyin. The club’s top scorer Cleiton Silva failed to have a big impact against Chennaiyin and it was Sekar who was once again impressive. This was Sekar’s fifth goal of the campaign and he has scored in back-to-back matches.

Even though Odisha have been pushing forward in good numbers so far this season, the last two matches have been somewhat difficult for the team in terms of getting on the scoresheet. East Bengal have a decent defence that is likely to sit back and take the pressure. After watching a goalless draw between these two teams are few months ago, it would not be a surprise to expect the same once again.
