Four defenders were on the scoresheet for Odisha FC.

What a game it was for Odisha FC at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. They came into this game in a ‘do-or-die’ situation having lost their opening two AFC Cup fixtures. But they fought back in style.

The Kalinga Warriors tormented Maziya S&RC and pulled off a fine 6-1 victory in front of their home fans. Goals from Puitea, Mourtada Fall, Carlos Delgado, Amey Ranawade, Isak Vanlalruatfela, and Sahil Panwar sealed the deal for Sergio Lobera’s side.
