Odisha FC vs Chennaiyin FC H2H
- The first leg of this tie in the ISL 2020-21 ended in 0-0.
Odisha FC to win or draw: Why is this a good bet?
- The Juggernauts have lost just 1 of their last 4 league games
- They have scored 7 goals in these many games
- Chennaiyin FC have drawn 3 of their last 4
- Odisha have scored 10 goals this season – 2 more than CFC
Not a lot has changed for the two teams since meeting just last weekend. That goalless draw saw the Marina Machans enjoy 57 percent ball possession and 11 shots in total (2 on target). By contrast, Odisha had 3 shots on target.
Nonetheless, Stuart Baxter would be pleased with his team’s performance but expects better from his men. They had a solid win over Kerala Blasters with 4-2 just last week and will be expected to continue playing in the same vein.
But it can be a bit tricky, considering that this reverse fixture is taking place in a matter of days and players may not be well-rested or even fresh for that matter. They will be missing the services of Jacob Tratt, who remains suspended for this game.
As for Chennaiyin, a shortage of goals would still be bothering them after tiring draws. Interestingly, CFC’s Jakub Sylvestr and Lallianzuala Chhangte have squandered 10 big chances between them. They also have 142 shots in total – 3rd highest in the league but are victim to poor conversions.
Even though they are at the 8th place – 3 above the bottom-placed Odisha, they still have ways to go if they want to emulate their incredible comeback from last season.
The two-time champions have enlisted the services of Spanish midfielder Manuel Lanzarote, who will be expected to fill the void left by their talisman Rafael Crivellaro, who will be absent for the rest of the season due to injury.
For this tie, Chennaiyin may hold the cards owing to their fairly better momentum, but Odisha do have big hitters like Manuel Onwu, Diego Mauricio and Marcelinho. Baxter has got a good team to play with, it is a matter of confidence. Plus, at odds of above 4.0, the decision is a bit easier to make.
Both Teams to Score: Why is this a good bet?
The first match was a draw, in this game, it is only fair to expect some goals from both sides. The two managers have had time to evaluate their mistakes and re-strategize with the motive to win.
For the same reason, we predict this game will see over 2.5 goals. Chennaiyin have proven that they can take shots and put players in the box; Odisha too have a pretty talented attacking line.
