Odisha's sorry season hit a new low on Wednesday when they were beaten 6-1 by Mumbai City.
Diego Mauricio gave Odisha a 9th minute lead from the penalty spot, but that was as good as it got.
It was a third straight loss after 3-1 defeats to Goa and NorthEast United, and a fifth in the last six games.
Odisha have also lost Jamshedpur 1-0 and ATK Mohun Bagan 4-1 in their recent run, as well as drawn 2-2 with Kerala Blasters.
The Kalinga Warriors have lost 12 of their 19 games, have won once and will finish bottom of the table regardless of the result in this game.

Centre-back Steven Taylor is set to miss the final game after being forced off with a groin strain against Mumbai City.
Taylor's absence should lead to a recall for midfielder Brad Inman with an overseas spot available.

V.P. Suhair gave NorthEast the lead and East Bengal's Sarthak Golui scored at both ends. SCEB were also reduced to 10-men after the dismissal of Raju Gaikwad.
The defeat followed a 3-1 loss to ATK Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata Derby last Friday.
