Odisha FC will meet Chennaiyin FC at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco in their next game of the ongoing eighth Indian Super League scheduled to be played at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco on Saturday. This game is going to be a designated away game for the Kalinga Warriors and they will definitely look forward to getting the result in their favour.
Odisha FC succumbed a defeat in their previous game as the team from Bhubaneswar was beaten by neighbouring Jamshedpur FC by a big margin of 4-0 goals. Chennaiyin FC, on the other hand, was defeated by Mumbai City FC 1-0 in its last game on Wednesday.
Both the teams will have the same target and that is to get back on the track of winning. Having played five games each, both Odisha FC and Chennaiyin FC are almost in a similar situation on the points table. Odisha FC, with three wins and two defeats, has nine points while the Chennai-based side has eight points with two wins, two draws, and one loss.
“The good thing in football is that we play again next week and we are going to prepare. We will take whatever good things we did today and try to be ready for the match and compete well. I apologize to all Odisha FC fans on behalf of the team and everyone today,” Odisha FC Head Coach Kiko Ramirez had mentioned after the previous game against Jamshedpur FC.
After their defeat against Mumbai City FC, Chennaiyin FC head coach Bozidar Bandovic had expressed, “Emotionally it’s bad because I believe we deserved more but we need to keep working, keep thinking about the next game. We need to be ready and we will be ready for the next game.
“I think defensively we totally controlled the game, In attack, we were much better in the second half. If we had attacked in the first half like we did in the second, we could win the game. But as I said, if we score the goal in the second half, the chances we had, it will be a totally different game. So defensively we controlled well.”
