NorthEast United FC will look to earn their first win in 2022 as star player Marcelinho makes his NEUFC debut against Odisha FC in matchday 64 of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) 2021-22 season on Tuesday at the PJN Stadium in Margao, Goa.
Both Odisha FC and NEUFC have had a terrible season so far and are in 9th and 10th position respectively in the points table. Both teams, however, are on the top two positions of the table this season, in terms of goals conceded and would not be very pleased with this record. Today’s match will start at 7:30 PM IST. It will be telecast live on the Star Sports Network, Disney+ Hotstar and Jio TV.
Marcelinho, who had previously won the Golden Boot in 2016, playing for Delhi Dynamos has represented various other ISL clubs, before NEUFC and is a tournament veteran. He has scored 33 ISL Goals and NEUFC will be hoping that his experience will help them go up the table. Odisha FC too has a lot of issues to fix.
They sacked coach Kiko Ramirez after their last match. Kino Garcia has been appointed as the interim replacement and it will be interesting to see his approach in this game. For the Highlanders, Hernan Santana and Imran Khan will be the other key players.
Both teams have struggled and will be eager to earn three points. Both the teams have faced each other five times and each team has won twice. However, in their previous match this season, Odisha FC had defeated NEUFC.
