ISL-10: Back-To-Back Wins For Odisha FC At Bhubaneswar’s Kalinga Stadium
Bhubaneswar: Three days after pulling off a remarkable comeback victory against Bengaluru FC at Kalinga Stadium, Odisha FC earned three more points at home, courtesy a 1-0 verdict over NorthEast United FC in ISL-10.
Dependable Brazilian marksman Diego Mauricio’s 37th-minute strike separated the two sides.
The win pushed Odisha FC up to fourth spot in the standings, with 10 points from 6 matches.
In four matches on home turf so far, the Kalinga Warriors have won 3 and drawn the other. But they have been on the wrong side of the scoreline in both away games – against FC Goa and Kerala Blasters.
Odisha next have a series of matches on the road. They play two AFC Cup group stage games – against Maziya in the Maldives and Mohun Bagan Supergiant at Salt Lake Stadium – in November before travelling to Tatanagar to face Jamshedpur FC on December 1, followed by Mohun Bagan in Kolkata again in ISL fixtures.
