With the league almost down the halfway mark, both teams are yet to register a win so far. The coaches will go into the game with pressure mounting on them to get favourable results.
SC East Bengal were behind in their last game against Chennaiyin FC but equalized twice to finish with a 2-2 scoreline. They have three draws in their last four encounters, something they will be glad about.
Odisha FC, on the other hand, have failed to keep a clean sheet so far this season. They have a shaky defense which has allowed the opponent's strikers to get past them. The Odisha-based club drew its previous fixture with NorthEast United FC, which saw two goals each from the two sides.
With three valuable points up for grabs, a thrilling clash is on the cards when the two teams meet on Sunday.
