Goa will play against Odisha in the Indian Football League on Wednesday. While Goa are currently placed fourth and won't want to lose points against a low-in confidence Odisha, who lie at the rock bottom of the table. Odisha should identify this as an opportunity to make an impact in the season despite managing just 1 win in 17 matches. A win here for Odisha will certainly not take them anywhere close to the top four but will do wonders to their confidence and might just spoil Goa's fun who find themselves at 24 points from 17 matches.
There is little doubt that Goa will do any experiment at this stage. With their key players fit and available for selection, expect them to play their best XI.
No injury news from the Odisha camp. With their backs against their wall, it will be more about having the belief that they can stitch a win which may go on to reflect in their attitude on the ground. Diego Maurico is expected to start for them in this game.
With Goa looking for nothing but a win, a positive brand of football is expected from the team. If Goa scores early, Odisha who are already low on confidence will feel the pressure and it would be even more difficult for them to play their best game. However, Odisha would look to make amends, play their best team against Goa and look to convert their chances into goals. This could be another ripper of a contest in the Indian Football League.

Dheeraj Singh, Seriton Fernandes, Ivan Gonzalez, Adil Khan, Saviour Gama, Edu Bedia, Glan Martins, Jorge Ortiz, Alberto Noguera, Alexander Jesuraj, Igor Angulo
