KBFC Vs ODS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: New entrants Odisha strive to make one final push to finish in fifth spot in their debut season in the league
Playing their first ever season in the Indian Super League, when Odisha made an advent into the ongoing edition of the league, the ambitions for the side were to acclimatise themselves with the league and its competition. And they have managed to succeed in their task with the side sitting in sixth place ahead of their culminating encounter today.
“It’s just the beginning of a very good project. In the next season, the fields will be better, along with the training grounds. The young players will be more experienced,” said Odisha’s manager Gombau about the takeaways from this season.
While even Odisha’s management and players will be well aware that thing could have been entirely different had they managed to inculcate a culture of consistency this season, the side will overall be pleased with their efforts. And with Mumbai City waning in form, Odisha have the chance to close out their opening campaign in 5th spot with a win today, something which will massively spur them on the day.
KBFC Vs ODS Probable Winner
While Kerala Blasters can’t rise any further than 7th in the league, the side has managed to give its supporters something to revel in as the league stage encounters have started wrapping up. They are unbeaten in their previous two encounters with the side expressing itself freely to come hot out of the blocks in their fixtures.
They’ll emulate the same rampant performance today as well with this being a levelly balanced affair, one we envision ending in a draw with either side putting immense importance to attack.

KBFC Vs ODS Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Arshdeep Singh has been handed over the mantle of stepping out as Odisha’s shot stopper for the final encounters and he’s managed to fare off reasonably well in them as well. His displays over the past couple of contests will see us move in with him as our shot stopper for the upcoming contest.
KBFC Vs ODS Dream11 Defenders
With this being either side’s culminating encounter and there being nothing to lose for either side when the take to the middle today, defence will be the last priority for either unit. The goals should slow on the day with us set to be immersed in an extradonaire goal feast, a discourse which sees us restrict our side to the bare minimum of three defensive options.
The ever reliable and dependable CB Carlos Javier is our pick from Odisha for the tie while from Kerala Blasters we have decided to pick out the two names. In Raju Gaikwad and Jessel Carneiro, the side has two names who look involving themselves in their side’s attacking sorties to come up with profound displays.
KBFC Vs ODS Dream11 Midfielders
He’s come up with 5 goals for his side this season to see us make Xisco Hernandez from Odisha our first pick for this encounter over here. He’s paired alongside Marcos Tebar, someone more than capable of providing unstinted support to the side’s travails while attacking.
From Kerala Blasters meanwhile, we have a partnership come in as well for us. In Mouhamadou Moustapha Gning and Sergio Cidoncha, the side have two eclectic names, players whose enigmatic displays are bound to leave Odisha flummoxed while defending.
KBFC Vs ODS Dream11 Strikers
The two goals for Kerala Blasters’ Bartholomew Ogbeche the last time around saw him further extend his reign as the side’s top scorer this term with 13 goals to make him a must have pick for the forthcoming tie. The 9 goals for Raphael Messi Bouli see us rope him in as well from the unit as we opt for a one-two of picks from the side.
From Odisha meanwhile we are going in with Manuel Onwu with the player having scored four time in his bygone four encounters with the player rediscovering himself ever since he’s moved to the side.
Captain And Vice Captain
With 13 goals this season, Ogbeche had to be our side’s captain while Onwu will represent our team as the vice-captain.
