On the second-last day of the league stages in ISL, the two bottom placed teams would be battling against each other. There is nothing much left to conquer or finish for both of the teams in their last fixture but both will try their best to end the season on a positive note.
The last game for the Juggernauts was nothing less than a nightmare, where they were beaten down 6-1 by the mighty Mumbai City FC. Talking about the positives for the Odisha FC, Diego and Jerry’s combination is the only thing to cheer for them. With 3 coaches in 20 matches, it itself says everything about their season. SC East Bengal can’t be criticized much as this was the first season for them alongside shifting from the 2nd league to the 1st league without much preparations. The team looked balanced and compact in the mid-season but for the truth, there were other teams far better which couldn’t make up to the top 4 spots.
Both teams should focus on delivering the game time to their youngsters and take a look at future plans. The match could see lots of youngsters getting their chances from both of the sides. Fowler did a total of 8 changes in his paying 11 for their previous fixture and today can be a similar day. For the Juggernauts, the ideas should be same. The match could swing in either of the ways, but the red and maroon bigrade would be the favorites.
