Odisha FC’s debut season in the Indian Super League (ISL) was nothing less than a rollercoaster ride. They will be hoping of an improved show when they kick-off their ISL season 7 campaign against Hyderabad FC on November 23.
Coached by Stuart Baxter, Odisha FC come into ISL 2020-21 as a team that can make an impact if it plays to its strengths.
The Bhubaneshwar-based side boast of a bunch of promising Indian youngsters like Shubham Sarangi, Nandakumar Sekar, Samuel Lalmuanpuia, Vinit Rai and Daniel Lalmuanpuia. They have done well to add experience to the team in the form of Steven Taylor and Marcelinho Leite, along with the retained name in Manuel Onwu.
Onwu proved to be the difference for Odisha FC in the latter half of the previous season - his seven goals and three assists in 10 games taking them to the sixth spot - and the team will be hoping that the Spaniard along with Marcelinho will lead them in front for the goal.
At the back, the former Newcastle United centre-back Steven Taylor is expected to be the anchor of a young defensive line. The team will rely heavily upon his experience, with the likes of Sarangi and George D’Souza expected to flourish under his guidance.
With relatively easy matches against Hyderabad FC (November 23) and Jamshedpur FC (November 29) first up for Odisha FC, the Stuart Baxter-coached side will hope to get their gameplan right before beginning their run of games against ATK Mohun Bagan, Mumbai City FC, FC Goa and Bengaluru FC in December.
