Emboldened by their win over FC Goa in the last match, Northeast United FC will be looking for their second win when they take on Odisha FC at Tilak Maidan, today.
The Juggernauts had started off the season well but were taken by surprise in their last match as Kerela Blasters decided to take charge which should keep them focused on this encounter.
Northeast United on the other hand have lost 2 of their last 4 matches drawing 1 and wining the last match against FC Goa. The highlanders will look to step up their defensive power to contain the opposition.
Head Coach Khalid Jamil said the team is up against a strong opponent as Odisha have started the season on a good leg and the match is important for the team. The key players including Deshon Brown, Federico Gallego and Imran Khan are injured and will be missing the match, which puts the Highlanders in a tight spot.
