Bengaluru FC vs Odisha FC H2H
Bengaluru FC to win: Why is this a good bet?
- BFC are at the 7th place with 13 points
- Odisha are at the bottom of the table with 7 points
- Bengaluru won the first leg of this tie by 2-1
Things are not going right for the Blues at the moment. They have parted ways with their former coach Carles Cuadrat and more than that, they have lost an astounding 5 of their last 6 league matches.
To put things into context, Bengaluru lost not more than 4 games in the last two seasons of the ISL.
The losses have been particularly disheartening – they most recently lost to Kerala Blasters by 2-1. Before that, they drew with NorthEast United. As for their other losses, they came against SC East Bengal, Mumbai City, and Jamshedpur FC.
If we are to go by Naushad Moosa’s words, the team had some positives in the last couple of games but it was silly mistakes in the defence that led to the losses. There is some truth to this statement, considering that all of their recent defeats – expect for the one against the Islanders – have been by an odd goal.
Despite the abundance of talent in this side, the team is struggling with confidence issues which are consequently reflecting in their performance. However, they have a chance against the bottom-placed Odisha FC to make things right.
The Juggernauts are looking better than they did in the first half of the season. In the last 5, they have drawn 2, lost 2, and won a match. The draws were against Chennaiyin FC and Hyderabad FC while the win came over Kerala Blasters with 4-2.
Despite these minor moments of brilliance, Stuart Baxter’s side has failed to find the consistency needed to win. With just 7 points in 12 games, their chances of making it to the playoffs are becoming increasingly difficult.
For this reason, we expect Bengaluru to win this game and finally get back to their winning ways.
Over 2.5 goals in the match: Why is this a good bet?
Bengaluru have been quiet for far too long and this is something we expect to change in this game. Even though Odisha are resilient in their own way, they will also look to score an odd goal or two.
Plus, Odisha have conceded in 4 of their last 5 matches, Bengaluru have conceded in all of their last 5 games. Hence, we can expect goals from both the sides and over 2.5 goals in this game.
