Odisha FC vs SC East Bengal: Building up
After their disappointing display last season, the Juggernauts couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new season. In their first game, the team from Bhubaneswar enjoyed a comfortable 3-1 victory against Bengaluru FC. Despite not having much of the ball, Odisha made easy work off Bengaluru, thanks to two goals from outside the box by midfielder Javi Hernandez. Forward Aridai Cabrera then finished the game off in stoppage time with a brilliant solo goal.
Odisha FC would like to carry on that momentum as they look to get another three points, this time at the expense of SC East Bengal.
SC East Bengal have not had the best of starts to the season. The team from Kolkata are yet to register a win after playing two games. Their first match was a 1-1 draw against Jamshedpur FC, which was followed by a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of rivals ATK Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata Derby on Saturday.
The Red and Gold would like to register their first win of the season against the Juggernauts, but that will be easier said than done.
