Hero Super Cup 2023: Odisha FC vs NorthEast United - Build-up

NorthEast United FC are all set to take on their eastern rivals Odisha FC in the semi finals of the Hero Super Cup 2023. In what will be considered as a pretty strange and unusual outing by spectators, given the tough groups these two teams were a part of.

Coming off the back of a poor ISL season that saw the Highlanders accumulate the lowest ever points tally in the history of the league, NorthEast have written the most unpredictable script, by winning a group consisting of shield winners Mumbai City FC and Chennaiyin FC

Odisha, on the other hand, overcame ISL giants like Hyderabad and East Bengal, and remained unbeaten in their journey to the semis, where they now take on a very altered NorthEast, with both clubs aiming at a first ever appearance in the finals.

The Stakes

NorthEast United FC

Life hasn’t been easy for NorthEast United FC and its supporters this season. The club’s performances in the league were inexplicably poor, and it is unimaginable how much the results in the past few days have meant for the Highlanders. Two big wins against Mumbai City and Churchill were enough to take the Highlanders through. They now have a big task in their hands – to stop a formidable Odisha FC side.

The stakes are higher than ever for the Highlanders, as a maiden place in the final awaits them, and now with a renewed confidence prevailing, the Highlanders have every right to dream for silverware.

Odisha FC

Odisha FC’s historic ISL season continues. After their maiden playoff qualification, the Juggernauts have also reached the semi-finals of the Super Cup. An unbeaten journey in the group stage – that comprised of a draw and two outstanding wins – was more than enough to see Clifford Miranda’s men through to their first-ever semi-final slot, where they now have a task in hand to overcome a reformed NorthEast. 

Saturday’s game poses a big opportunity for Odisha, to go ever so close towards claiming their first-ever trophy, and Clifford Miranda and his men will give their all to come home with silverware.
