After a strong performance in Kolkata, Sergio Lobera and his side are in Jamshedpur to take on the Red Miners at the JRD Tata Complex hoping to secure all three points away from home.
Odisha FC visits Jamshedpur FC on the back of an AFC Cup win against the Mariners and will hope to replicate the same performance tonight.
The Kalinga Warriors sit fifth on the league standings while Jamshedpur FC is placed 10th on the table. A win for Sergio Lobera will propel Odisha FC into the top three spots on the table.
Jamshedpur FC has had a slow start to the season owing to their problems going forward and finding the back of the net. The Red Miners have been an absolute unit at the back, conceding only seven goals this season.
Scott Copper’s side has lost four games, drawn one, and won one so far. The JFC boss believes that his team is playing an attractive brand of football and will try to turn things around starting tonight.
The Odisha FC side has taken quickly to experienced Spanish tactician Sergio Lobera’s philosophy and has displayed a flurry of comeback wins this season. Odisha FC has scored a total of 11 goals this season, which is second-highest in the league so far.
“I feel lucky because I have good players. The main thing is that all my players are thorough professionals and amazing human beings. It’s good to work with such people as a coach.” expressed Sergio at the pre-match press conference.
Lobera has said that his ambition is to be successful with Odisha FC in the years to come and that is what he has come to do. “This is my club. We need to be focused on the present as football is not about the past or the future.” said the tactician.
The game will kick-off at 20.00h and will be broadcast live on Sports18, VH1 and live-streamed on Jio Cinema.
