Odisha Form


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.

Odisha Team News


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.

East Bengal Form


East Bengal suffered a second successive defeat when going down 2-1 to NorthEast United on Tuesday.

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.

SCEB have won just three times and recorded eight draws during their first season in the Indian Super League.

East Bengal could finish eighth in the table in their debut season in the ISL with a win. 

East Bengal Team News 


East Bengal are without centre-back Raju Gaikwad and right-back Scott Neville through suspension.

Centre-back Danny Fox is available again after a one-game ban, while coach Robbie Fowler will be back on the touchline after a four-match suspension.

Head-to-Head 


These two sides met for the first time in the Indian Super League in January and the points went to East Bengal courtesy of a 3-1 win.

Anthony Pikington, Jacques Maghoma and Bright Enobakhare scored for SCEB before Danny Fox put through his own net in injury time.

Predictions


Odisha can't wait to see the back of the season, but there may be one more defeat waiting for them.

East Bengal can sign off their debut season in the Indian Super League with a win, and goals are expected.

Verdict

East Bengal have impressed at times during their debut season. They can end it on a high by rubbing salt into Odisha wounds. I'm expecting goals in the final game for both sides.
