The Kalinga Warriors have started their season on quite a positive note. They won their opening match by a 3-1 scoreline, with Javi Hernandez scoring a brace. Forward Aridai Cabrera then finished the game off in stoppage time with a brilliant solo goal. However last season Odisha was at the bottom of the table and struggling to capitalize on their previous season’s matches. But this season their team looks strong on paper and the pitch as well. Their new signings are providing to be working out and as expecting more positive performances from the team.
On the other hand, The Red and Gold are not at their very best this season yet. Their first match ended in a 1-1 draw vs Jamshedpur. But in their recent match in the Kolkata Derby vs ATK Mohun Bagan ended up as a nightmare for East Bengal. ATKMB found the EB net 3 times in quick succession and took control over the whole match in just the first 30 mins. East Bengal eventually lost the match 3-0 to their arch-rivals. However, East Bengal will be looking to take on Odisha FC early in the game and get a win.
Injuries- Arindam Bhattacharya is out after his injury against MB.
