The upcoming match between NorthEast United and Odisha is a much closer contest after the recent results panned out for the two teams. An incredible late comeback victory for NorthEast United has helped them jump ahead of Odisha in the league table.

Meanwhile, Odisha will be looking to make the most of their promising home advantage to pick up a victory in the upcoming fixture. Odisha have also dominated many of the recent games against Northeast. The poor defensive performances from Odisha are likely to keep the team in a spot of bother.

Odisha FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Odisha have been delightful in front of goal

The last two home matches for Odisha have produced nine goals

Reasons to be fearful

There are still plenty of problems for the team to sort out at the back

Diego Maurício is yet to fire on all cylinders

A big comeback against Bengaluru has been able to erase painful memories of the late defeat against Kerala Blasters in the last match. Coach Sergio Lobera has come across a strong set of home performances from his team.

The Kalinga Stadium has been similar to a fortress for Odisha with only two defeats in the last 10 matches. A big positive for Odisha will be the goals from across the pitch and they have been flowing in good numbers as well.

Star man – Diego Mauricio

Diego Mauricio is likely to be included in the starting line-up after playing for just under 30 minutes in the victory over Bengaluru. The Brazilian came up with 12 goals in the 22-23 season. His record against NorthEast United is rather good with three goals in his five appearances. Mauricio has found the back of the net in back-to-back games.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

NorthEast United are unbeaten in the recent four matches

NorthEast United are yet to lose away from home this season

Reasons to be fearful

There have been poor away performances from NorthEast United

NorthEast United have been unable to pick up too many goals away from home

NorthEast United have been able to jump up to 4th in the standings. The club have not suffered a defeat since opening the campaign with a loss against Mumbai City. Coach Juan Pedro Benali may not have witnessed a dominant set of performances from his team but it has kept them in the loop for success.

The big expectation of the team will be good defensive performances. Apart from the clean sheet against Chennaiyin, it has not been a happy defensive line for the visiting outfit.

Star man – Ibson Melo

Ibson Melo has just picked up his first goal of the Indian Super League 2023-24 campaign. After scoring for the first time in the league, the forward is likely to be pumped up for the upcoming encounter. The 34-year-old has largely been deployed from the bench, but this could change in the upcoming game.

NorthEast United might have not suffered a defeat in the recent four matches but they are likely to struggle at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. Even going back to last season, the club has struggled to make a big impression in away games. The last away success for NorthEast United in the ISL was back in February 2021.
