SC East Bengal vs Odisha FC — injuries, team news, predictions, lineup and more

- Sponsored content -

The only two sides to have not tasted the win this season will lock horns in the next Indian Super League fixture at the Tilak Maidan Stadium, Vasco. The game is definitely going to be interesting as both the neighbours from the east coast of India will look forward to seal their first victory.

Stuart Baxter’s men look to have regained a goalscoring mindset after their convincing 2-2 draw against in-form Northeast United but it added to their defensive woes as they conceded one more penalty this time. On the other hand Fowler’s Red and Gold have drawn 3 among their last 4 games and look a bit more stable than how they were in the initial few games.

Matti Steinmann: After his convincing brace against Chennaiyin FC, the German has been the center of many buzz. It will be definitely a treat to watch him especially during set pieces.

Jacques Maghoma: The Congolese has also scored a brace against Hyderabad FC however it couldn’t save any point for his team. He will definitely be a huge presence in the field.

Jeje Lalapekhlua: The Mizo-sniper has been able to play only 190 minutes this game. Still me must not forget the 2nd highest Indian goalscorer in the history of the competition.

Odisha FC:

Cole Alexander: The protea midfielder was very crucial in the recently concluded game as he impacted an amazing curler to secure one point for his side. He will definitely be vital for the Juggernauts.

Diego Mauricio: The Brazilian has scored 3 goals so far this season, leading his team from the front. He will definitely be the man to watch out this time.
