Odisha FC will host FC Goa in the upcoming ISL fixture at the Kalinga Stadium on Moday night. The Eastern Dragons will be eager to secure a victory in this highly anticipated encounter.
Josep Gombau’s side has had a decent run in the league, with players like Diego Mauricio, Nandhakumar Sekar, Isak Ralte, and Jerry leading the line.
The team will be relying on its strong defence to keep the opposition at bay. On the other hand, the Gaurs are known for their attacking prowess, with players like Iker and Alvaro leading the attack.
Odisha FC fought hard in Chennai to gain a valuable point against Chennaiyin FC as they climbed back to 6th place. Diego and Isak got their names on the scoresheet in what was an end-to-end clash. Isak was the ‘Hero of the Match’ for his assist and goal against Chennaiyin FC. Odisha FC announced the signing of Princeton Rebello earlier this week to add more steel to the midfield.
Josep Gombau’s men will be on the hunt for all three points at home and will look to cement their place in the playoffs as they are aware of the importance this fixture holds going into the business end of the season.
Carlos Pena’s side won their last away game when they visited Chennai in October. The Gaurs will put their best foot forward come Monday when they pay a visit to the Kalinga.
New additions Hernan Santana and former Odisha FC player Nikhil Prabhu have been roped in as the Gaurs wrapped up their business in the January transfer window.
The previous encounters between these two sides have been entertaining, with goals being scored at both ends of the pitch. Fans can expect a similar encounter this time around, with both teams expected to go all out in search of a win.
The game will be broadcasted live on Star Sports and live-streamed on Disney+ Hotstar & JioTV.
