SC East Bengal and Odisha FC face each other in search of first win


Goa: SC East Bengal lock horns with Odisha hunting for their first win in match 45 of the Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan in Goa on Sunday(December 3).

East Bengal have been going through a disappointing campaign so far having entered the ISL with a lot of hopes. EB defense have been a major concern, leaking goals at crucial moments which was again evident in their last match when they drew 2-2 with Chennaiyin FC.

However, coach Robbie Fowler will hope that the two new signings Raju Gaikwad and Ankit Mukherjee can boost the side’s spirit with latter having experience of playing for ATK in ISL previously. The Red and Golds will rely heavily on Anthony Pilkington to create something for the side with Jacques Maghoma’s physicality being a constant threat to the opposition.

Odisha, on the other hand will also look for their first win of the campaign as coach Stuart Baxter hoping that his side finally can get to back to winning ways. Cole Alexander and Diego Mauricio have been the shining stars of their side so far.

However youngster from the Indian contingent can prove to be quite useful for the side with the likes of Subham Sarangi and Arshdeep Singh in their ranks.

SC East Bengal possible playing XI: Debjit Majumder(GK),Daniel Fox, Scott Neville, Sehnaj Singh, Surchandra Singh, Mohammed Rafique, Haobam Singh, Matti Steinmann, Bikash Jairu, Jacques Maghoma, Anthony Pilkington.

Odisha FC possible playing XI: Arshdeep Singh(GK), Shubham Sarangi, Jacob Tratt, Steven Taylor, Hendry Antonay, Vinit Rai, Gaurav Bora, Cole Alexander, Jerry Mawihmingthanga, Diego Mauricio, Manuel Onwu
