Bengaluru Form

Bengaluru slipped to a fifth defeat in their last six games when going down 2-1 to Kerala Blasters on Wednesday.

In a dramatic conclusion, Bengaluru hit the post before conceding 10 seconds later as Rahul Kannoly Praveen scored a 94th minute winner for Kerala.

Earlier, Cleiton Silva had put Bengaluru in front before Lalthathanga Khawlhring equalised for the Blasters.

Interim coach Naushad Moosa had picked up a first point since replacing Carles Cuadrat when his side drew 1-1 with NorthEast United in their previous game.

That stalemate halted a four-game losing run that had seen Cuadrat relieved of his duties.

Bengaluru Team News

Fran Gonzalez returned from injury at the heart of the Bengaluru defence against Kerala Blasters, with Pratik Chaudhary dropped to the bench.

Midfielder Xisco Hernandez has yet to complete his quarantine period and is still not available for a second Bengaluru debut.

Midfielder Dimas Delgado is also still unavailable after returning to Spain for a family emergency. Amay Morajkar will continue to deputise.

Defender Harmajot Khabra remains out with a hamstring strain.

Odisha Form

Bottom of the table Odisha picked up just a seventh point of the season when holding Hyderabad to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday.

Stuart Baxter's side levelled through Cole Alexander after Halicharan Narzary had opened the scoring for Hyderabad.

Despite the point against Hyderabad, Odisha are five points adrift of East Bengal at the foot of the standings.

They have enjoyed an improvement in form of late, losing one of their last four matches.

Odisha Team News

Steven Taylor missed the draw with Hyderabad, but will come back into the heart of the Odisha defence.

That should result in a reshuffle with Jacob Tratt moving to right-back and Mohammad Sajid Dhot dropping to the defence.

Marcelinho is unlikely to force his way back into the Odisha midfielder and will be set for more bench time.

Head to Head

Bengaluru have won five of the seven matches against Odisha in the Indian Super League.

It is now three wins in a row for Bengaluru, who won 1-0 away and 3-0 at home last season. They followed that with a 2-1 win in December.

Sunil Chhetri and Cleiton Silva scored for Bengaluru, either side of Steven Taylor's goal for Odisha.


Bengaluru were unlucky not to win against Kerala Blasters in a dramatic conclusion. They are tipped to end their six-game winless run against bottom side Odisha, who they have won three in a row against.

  • Bengaluru have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (Indian Super League).
  • Bengaluru have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches (Indian Super League).
  • Bengaluru have won their last 3 matches against Odisha (Indian Super League).
  • Odisha have lost 7 of their last 10 matches (Indian Super League).
  • Odisha have seen BTTS in 6 of their last 7 matches (Indian Super League).
