FC Goa and Odisha FC will lock horns in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco, Goa, on Wednesday. The two sides are among the only four clubs in the competition that are winless in their last five matches.
FC Goa came from behind twice to play an inspiring 2-2 draw with Chennaiyin FC in their last ISL fixture. Igor Angulo calmly converted his penalty in the 19th minute before Ishan Pandita equalized in the additional minute of the second half.
The Gaurs have drawn all six of their previous matches. They will be eager to end their string of ties and pick up a win.
Odisha FC head into this fixture on the back of a 1-3 loss against NorthEast United FC. The Highlanders pumped in three quick goals in the first twenty-five minutes of the game. Odisha responded by scoring through Jacob Tratt at the stroke of half-time, but it turned out to be a mere consolation.
The struggling Kalinga Warriors have collected just four points in their last eight matches. They were in action just two days ago and had much less time to rest and recover.
