Odisha vs East Bengal Predictions


Odisha can claim a vital three points in Thursday's ISL contest at the Kalinga Stadium.

I'm backing the hosts to win and to score at least two goals, while I also expect both teams to score. 

  • Odisha have won 6 of their last 9 home matches
  • Odisha have scored 2+ goals in 6 of their last 9 home matches
  • Odisha have won 5 of their last 6 matches against East Bengal (ISL)
  • East Bengal have seen BTTS in 8 of their last 9 matches against Odisha
  • East Bengal conceded 22 goals in their last 5 matches against Odisha (ISL)
  • East Bengal have lost 7 of their last 12 away matches (ISL)
  • East Bengal conceded 2+ goals in their last 9 away defeats

Head to Head


East Bengal and Odisha will meet for the tenth time on Thursday. Odisha leads the H2H record with five wins to East Bengals two victories. The Red and Gold Brigade claimed a dramatic 3-2 triumph in their most recent meeting in the final of the Indian Super Cup in January. 

Usually a high-scoring contest, eight of their nine previous meetings saw BTTS, while a staggering 45 goals were scored across those matches – that's an average of five goals per game!

Odisha Form


Odisha come into Thursday's contest hoping to break a two-game winless run at the Kalinga Stadium. Sergio Lobera's side have been held to back-to-back draws against Goa and Mohun Bagan in the past three weeks. 

Unbeaten in their last 12 ISL matches, and in nine home fixtures this season, the Juggernauts retain a narrow one-point advantage at the summit of the division. 

Odisha Team News


Odisha boss Lobera has no new injury issues to contend with after Saturday's draw against Mohun Bagan. Cy Goddard could come into the manager's thoughts should he look to freshen the Juggernauts attack. 

East Bengal Form


East Bengal arrive in Bhubaneswar boosted by a 1-0 victory against Chennaiyin on Monday. Nandhakumar Sekar's fifth goal of the season was enough to claim the Red and Gold Brigade's fourth win of the season. 

Carles Cuadrat's team had won just one of their eighth previous league matches before Monday's much-needed three points. The Red and Gold find themselves ninth in the 12-team division, with just 18 points collected from 16 games.

East Bengal Team News


East Bengal boss Cuadrat has a near-fully fit squad to choose from for Thursday's ISL contest. The visitors are likely to retain a settled selection; however, Jordan Elsey remains sidelined with a long-term knee injury. 

Verdict

Previous matches between these sides have seen plenty of goals, and I expect something similar on Thursday.

I'm taking Odisha to win with at least two goals scored, while I also fancy both teams to get on the scoresheet in Bhubaneswar.
