Today on Super Sunday, the Juggernauts will face Marina Machans at GMC Bambolim Stadium, Goa in the first match of the day. Odisha FC will be eager to get their second win on the trot after an impressive victory over Kerala Blasters FC in the last match. Chennaiyin FC faced their third defeat of the season at the hands of Hyderabad FC and yesterday they announced they will not get the service of their club captain Rafael Crivellaro till the end of the season as he will be out with an ankle injury.
The Marina Machans will look to end the first set of the fixtures on a high note as their main striker Jakub Sylvester is still rooting for his form but it’s just a matter of time for him.
Three Indian players to watch out for:
Three Indian players to look out for are Jerry Mawihmingthanga, Anirudh Thapa, Rahim Ali. Jerry played a pivotal role in their first win of the season, he has made four assists to his name and his instrumental run down the left flank has been one of the weapons for Stuart Baxter to whip in those crosses for their strikers. Anirudh Thapa was instrumental in the middle of the park for Csaba Lazlo, he already netted two goals in the season, he had been the bridge for the defense and the forward line especially after the unavailability of Rafael Crivellaro.
Three foreign players to watch out for:
Three foreign players to watch out for are Diego Mauricio, Jakub Sylvester, Cole Alexander. The Brazilian had been in the sizzling form, scored two world class goals in the last outing against Kerala Blasters FC, already netted five goals in the tournament, so he will be the main man to watch out for the Juggernauts. Cole Alexander had been the main link with the defense and the forward, he scored one goal in the tournament and also maintained a healthy 72% passing accuracy, also made 41 tackles in eight matches he played for the club.
Rafael Crivellaro is out for the whole season, as it will be a major setback for Csaba Lazlo’s team. No injury concerns are there in Odisha camp.
