Struggling Odisha FC will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome high-flying Mumbai City in the upcoming league round. It’s 11th vs 2nd and the home crowd will have moderate expectations.

Insights:
  • Odisha FC is in the worst form (0-2-4)
  • Mumbai City has the most points (19) away in Indian Super League

Mumbai City could be less fresh than the hosts in this fixture, as they played a Indian Super League game only four sleeps ago. That game was also an away game, at Jamshedpur. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.

It's quite the trip for Mumbai City when visiting Odisha FC as the cities are 1400 kilometers apart.

Odisha FC form and stats

With 0 Indian Super League wins, 2 draws and 6 defeats from their home games, Odisha FC, who have the fewest clean sheets (1) in Indian Super League, are certainly not brimming with confidence. Odisha are slowly digging their own grave here at GMC Stadium with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in eight attempts. The last victory here came in the Hyderabad match.

Odisha are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 1-3 away versus Goa. Heartbreak before that as Odisha lost 1-3 at NorthEast United's place.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Indian Super League game versus East Bengal in only three days. This game is also played here at GMC Stadium.

The goals haven't exactly been flowing for Odisha here at GMC Stadium in the league, with less than one goal per game on average (7 from 8 games). Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 15 goals have been conceded.
