Kolkata: Indian Super League teams Odisha FC will face Kerala Blasters today, followed by Bengaluru FC taking on the Indian Air Force. Both Bengaluru FC and Odisha FC will seek their second win in the tournament while their opponents will fight to taste the first win.
Odisha FC vs Kerala Blasters
Odhisa FC looks good from their first game against NorthEast United providing the impression that they are scoring at will. The combination of Jerry, Nandhakumar and Pedro Martin upfront seems wonderful along with Dieogo Mauricio and Thoiba Singh who came off the bench looks hungry. Spanish gaffer Josep Gombau seemed to have all bases covered and has put together an efficient and lethal unit.

Kerala Blasters will have their task cut out as the Tomasz Tchorz coached side, although having done extremely well to come out of their first Sudeva game with a point, were certainly under the cosh for most parts.
Bengaluru FC vs Indian Air Force
Sunil Chhetri led Bengaluru FC have to be a bit more wary against an Indian Air Force side which is certainly quite capable.
The journey continues! ⚡️ Simon Grayson’s Blues are up against Indian Air Force FT in their second encounter of the #2022DurandCup.

Indian Air Force players like Md. Aqib and Prabhjot Singh, can give the Bengaluru defence reasons to worry. The defence will miss Hira Mondal, who picked up a red in opener game
However looks eager Chhetri and talents like Leon Augustine up front, makes them the favorite.
