Odisha Form

Odisha remain bottom of the Indian Super League table, despite making it one defeat in their last four matches when drawing with Chennaiyin on Sunday.

Stuart Baxter's side earned their sixth point from 10 games this season in a match of few clear-cut chances.

It continued a mini-revival for the Kalinga Warriors, who had picked up two points from their first eight games of the season.

Odisha have earned four more from the last two games, including from a 4-2 win over fellow strugglers Kerala Blasters.

Baxter's side fell behind to Jordan Murray's seventh minute opener in that game. But a Jeakson Singh own goal, a Steven Taylor finish and a Diego Mauricio double sealed the win before Kerala's Gary Hooper scored a late consolation.

Odisha Team News

Stuart Baxter is unlikely to make many changes after finding some form. One change could see Manuel Onwu come into the attack.

Chennaiyin Form

Chennaiyin have now gone four games without a win. Three of them have ended in draws, including Sunday's goalless stalemate against Odisha.

Csaba Lazlo's side, last season's beaten finalists, find themselves in eighth spot in the standings with 11 points from 10 matches.

That follows draws with East Bengal (2-2), ATK Mohun Bagan (0-0) and Odisha as well as a 4-1 defeat to Hyderabad in their last four games. Chennaiyin conceded four times in the second-half of that defeat.  

Chennaiyin are the lowest scorers in the ISL this season with just eight from 10 games. 

Chennaiyin Team News

Striker Isma is almost certain to make his first start since returning from injury as Chennaiyin look for an answer to their goalscoring problems.

Jakub Sylvestr or Fatkhullo Fatkhulloev face being dropped to make way for Isma.

Head to Head

The two sides met four days ago when playing out a 0-0 draw. That makes it five draws in the last seven head to heads between Odisha and Chennaiyin.

Chennaiyin have a poor record against Odisha, winning one of 13 previous matches between the sides.


These two sides met on Sunday in the reserve fixture and it was a share of the points from a 0-0 draw. Another stalemate is predicted with five of the last seven meetings having ended in draws.

  • Odisha are unbeaten in their last 9 matches against Chennaiyin (Indian Super League).
