Odisha vs NorthEast United H2H
NorthEast United to win: Why is this a good bet?
- NorthEast United have lost just 1 match in their 7 ISL games this season
- By the same token, Odisha have lost 5 of their last 6 matches
- The Juggernauts are still seeking their first win of the season
- Meanwhile, NorthEast are at the 4th place with 10 points
For Stuart Baxter’s men, it has been an abysmal start to the Indian Super League 2020-21. Sitting at the bottom of the table, Odisha FC have managed to earn only a point, courtesy of a 2-2 draw to Jamshedpur last month.
The last few matchdays have not been particularly kind for the Bhubaneshwar based club – they lost to Bengaluru FC by 2-1, in addition to incurring similar defeats to FC Goa and Mumbai City FC.
That said, Baxter has faith in his men and believes that the team is showing signs of improvement. There are a few big names in this Odisha side – Marcelinho, Manuel Onwu, and Steven Taylor – all of whom are bustling with talent and experience.
It is not too late for Odisha to turn the tide around but it will be tricky against a menacing NorthEast United FC.
The NEFC boys lost to Jamshedpur FC most recently by 1-0, thus bringing an end to their unbeaten streak in the ISL this season. Prior to that, they went on 6 games without a loss while holding big guns like Bengaluru FC and FC Goa to draws.
Gerard Nus’s side is also the only team in the league to have beaten the league leaders Mumbai City FC.
By all means, NorthEast United FC are the favourites to win this game. It is just a matter of how well they do this.
Both Teams to Score: Why is this a good bet?
Odisha FC are starting to show promising signs of a comeback, including their abilities to score goals. NEFC too have a fairly talented playing XI who can score when need be. It will be a tight game but we can expect goals from both sides.
As for Over 2.5 goals in this match bet, we say this because 2 of their last 3 meetings have seen at least 3 goals. Secondly, it has been a complete team effort from NorthEast United when it comes to scoring goals – Idrissa Sylla, Kwesi Appiah, and Luis Machado are doing their part in bringing the goals.
Against a battered Odisha FC, they have a chance to register one of their most impressive wins in the ISL.
