NorthEast United FC showed great grit and determination as they registered a point for themselves in their opener and coach Robert Jarni would have been pleased with the display of his team. However, at home, the coach has said the team would look to play more attacking football and for that, he would need star striker Asamoah Gyan and Uruguayan attacking midfielder Martin Chaves to be a lot more clinical.

For Odisha, the game will be all about making their opportunities count. They were caught out on the counter numerous times against Jamshedpur in the previous game despite playing against 10 men. Given that the Josep Gombau advocates a possession-based philosophy, Odisha must make the most of their chances while remaining cautious against counter-attacks.
