Punjab are a relieved outfit to have finally picked up the first victory of the campaign. The victory over Chennaiyin has helped Punjab build on their recent set of decent performances. The team will have high expectations coming into the home fixture against Odisha, who have been on a lengthy unbeaten streak in several competitions.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Punjab have just managed a first win of the campaign

The club also picked up a second clean sheet in the last three

Reasons to be fearful

Punjab still does not have an outstanding presence in the final third

The club have only managed nine goals so far this season

Punjab has slowly been building up to a level of performance that is likely to guarantee victories in the coming weeks. After having gone 10 matches without a victory in the league, the success finally came in the form of a 1-0 victory over Chennaiyin. Therefore, coach Staikos Vergetis was not only elated to find a solid set of performances from his team but they were also able to claim a crucial victory. Punjab have no injury issues coming into the game.

Star man – Luka Majcen

Luka Majcen remains the top scorer in the Punjab squad with three goals. The striker picked up a booking against Chennaiyin and he has not scored in his last three appearances. However, it is difficult to look beyond the 34-year-old for consistent goals in the game.

Odisha FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Odisha have been on a nine-game unbeaten streak

There have been three wins in the last five games for Odisha

Reasons to be fearful

Odisha are winless in the last two away matches

Odisha have only picked up one win in the last five away games

Odisha might have struggled for wins in the games against Mohun Bagan and East Bengal but the team remains in a brilliant position to end 2023 on a positive note. A victory in the two remaining matches could still put Odisha in the top two places of the league table. The club have enjoyed a fine run in front of goal with only Mohun Bagan scoring more goals.

A big positive for Odisha will be the form of offensive players like Roy Krishna. They have been dictating most of the actions of the final third. Coach Sergio Lobera has a great selection problem with Diego Maurício also fighting for a starting spot

Star man – Roy Krishna

Roy Krishna has easily been Odisha’s best player over the last few weeks. He has become the club’s top scorer this season by surpassing Diego Maurício with his goals against Hyderabad. Even though Roy Krishna has been very prolific when it comes to home matches, he will still be a big threat in this game.

Odisha have reasons to be concerned about their upcoming away match against Punjab. After having stayed even less for the best part of 2023, Punjab are looking to end the year on a positive note with a victory achieved in the recent match. Punjab will be looking to build on this win over Chennaiyin. A draw is a more likely result.
