Indian Super League: GameWeek 2
Stadium: Mumbai Football Arena, Mumbai
15th October 2022
Odisha came back strongly in the dying minutes of the game against Jamshedpur to earn all three points. Will they be able to navigate the mighty Mumbai or will we see the blues take the victory in the game?
Mumbai City FC Form
Mumbai took the lead in their first game against Hyderabad with an early strike from Chinglensana Singh. However, they went on to settle for a draw. The draw was not easy against the south Indian side. They did not play to their full potential and gave a lacklustre performance in the game. The Islanders will be looking to change that and dominate on Saturday against Odisha. With home support on their side, they will be looking to give a good performance on the pitch.
Mumbai City FC possible lineup
Phurba Lachenpa (GK); Rahul Bheke, Rostyn Griffiths, Mourtada Fall, Mandar Rao Dessai; Vinit Rai, Apuia; Lallianzuala Chhangte, Bipin Singh, Greg Stewart; Jorge Pereyra Diaz.
Odisha FC Form
Odisha have had a very poor season last year winning only six games out of 20. They have undergone a huge squad change and it was evident in the first game. They went two goals down quite early but won the game in the end. Odisha's current coach Josep Gombau will be looking to make a huge statement in the ISL after winning the second game on the trot.
Odisha FC Predicted lineup
Amrinder Singh (GK); Thoiba Singh Moirangthem, Narender Gahlot, Carlos Delgado, Sahil Panwar, Osama Malik, Raynier Fernandes, Saúl Crespo; Jerry Mawihmingthanga, Nanda Kumar, Diego Mauricio.
Jamshedpur FC vs Odisha FC expert tips
The head-to-head comparison between these two teams has been pretty even. Both have won three games each out of six played. The fixture has seen a fair bit of goals as the last two games saw 11 goals. We expect a goal feast in this game as well. We also expect Odisha to win the game or the game can end in a draw.
