Durand Cup 2022: Odisha FC look to maintain perfect record against Army Green
High-flying Odisha FC will look to continue their red-hot form when their group stage campaign draws to a close with a game against Army Green on Sunday.
Josep Gombau’s men have been near perfect in the tournament so far winning all three games without conceding a single goal. They have also scored eleven times in three matches so far and would love to keep the momentum going before the quarter-finals when they take on Army Green in Guwahati.
Army Green who have won one, drawn one and lost one in their three games so far will look to end their campaign on a high and finish with a respectable points tally of seven points.
However, it will be a tall order against an Odisha FC side that have been flamboyant from the word go in the Durand Cup this season.
The goals have come from all quarters for the Juggernauts who have six different scorers in the tournament so far led by Saul Crespo and Jerry Mawihmingthanga who have scored three each and are hot on the heels of top scorer Bartholomew Ogbeche.
Odisha FC have confirmed top spot in Group D and we could thus see Gombau rotate his squad and give chances to players who don’t have a lot of minutes under their belt as they prepare for the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) season that begins from October 7 with a clash between Kerala Blasters FC and East Bengal FC.
The match between Odisha FC and Army Green is scheduled for 6 PM IST and will be shown LIVE on Sports18, Sports18 HD and streamed LIVE on Voot Select.
