Third-placed Odisha FC will take on NorthEast United FC at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Friday, December 2. It has been a contrasting start for both sides so far in the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL).

Odisha have punched above their weight, while the Highlanders have failed to impress, losing seven games on the trot and are yet to open the account for the season.

Josep Gombau's Juggernauts recently registered two memorable victories against East Bengal and Chennaiyin FC, respectively. They undid a two-goal deficit to score four against the Kolkata giants at the Salt Lake Stadium and resumed their clinical nature in front of goal by scoring three against the Marina Machans, including a last-gasp winner from Nandha Kumar.

Marco Balbul's side, on the other hand, enjoyed a two-week break before their clash against Mumbai City FC. But, NorthEast United FC failed to make the most of it as they lost 3-1 to the table toppers.

Playoff qualifications will serve as a motivation for the hosts. NorthEast United FC, on the other hand, will be itching to get their first victory on the board in the 2022/23 Indian Super League season.
