When Odisha take on Goa on December 24, expect the encounter to be a close one as the two teams are separated by only one point and one position in the form table. While Odisha is coming off back-to-back losses to Jamshedpur and Chennaiyin FC over the weekend, Goa will head into the game in somewhat better form, having won two of their past five games. However, since both teams have had a lot of inconsistency in their recent performances, they would be hoping to correct that.
Both teams have been scoring at a high rate thus far, therefore scoring appears to be a reasonable pick for this one. Juan Ferrando’s stint in command of Goa came to an end on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Hyderabad, and he left to join ATK Mohun Bagan. Derrick Pereira, the team’s technical director, takes over as head coach and will want to improve on a seven-point run over the past three games.
