Kerala Blasters (KBFC) take on Odisha FC (OFC) in match 19 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco da Gama, Goa on Sunday, December 5.
KBFC vs OFC Dream11 prediction
While Kerala Blasters are still winless in the ongoing edition of Indian Super League, Odisha FC are on a two-match winning streak and have scored the most goals in ISL 2021-22 (9) as Mumbai City FC.
The Kerala Blasters vs Odisha FC head-to-head record is in favour of KBFC. While three meetings have ended in draws, the Juggernauts won 4-2 when they faced the Yellow Army last season and are well-placed to register a convincing win this time around.
KBFC vs OFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
It goes without saying that Aridai Cabrera has to be your first choice pick. The 33-year-old Spanish winger has opened his ISL account with three goals in three games, for which he has been rewarded with 149 fantasy points. Cabrera will hope to continue his free-scoring spree and appease his 86.71 per cent fantasy owners.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Adrian Luna has been the creative spark for Kerala Blasters this season, despite results not going their way. The Uruguayan has attempted the most passes (131) this season and is poised to call the shots in the midfield engine room against Odisha FC. Luna has tallied 120 fantasy points from two games.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Hector Rodas is a smart pick for the defensive slot. An attack-minded defender, Sabia can add impetus to attacks going forward as he has scored twice so far, while registering eight tackles, four interceptions and five clearances at the heart of the Odisha defence. Although the Blasters may not have the tools to trouble the OFC backline, Rodas will hope to keep his guard on to deny the Yellow Army’s attempts on goal on Sunday.
For a goalkeeper, fantasy players should be quick to draft in OFC’s Kamaljit Singh. The 32-year-old custodian has leaked 1.76 goals per game in his ISL career while tallying 111 saves between the sticks. While he hasn’t kept a clean sheet this season, Kamaljit is well-placed to pick up a clean sheet against a winless Kerala.
KBFC vs OFC probable playing XI
KBFC (probable): Albino Gomes (Goalkeeper); Harmanjot Khabra, Marko Leskovic, Enes Sipovic, Jessel Carneiro (captain); Vincy Barretto, Jeakson Singh, Ayush Adhikari, Sahal Abdul Samad; Adrian Luna, Alvaro Vazquez
OFC (probable): Kamaljit Singh (Goalkeeper); Hendry Antonay, Victor Mongil, Hector Rodas, Lalruatthara; Vinit Rai (captain), Thoiba Singh; Jerry Mawihmingthanga, Javier Hernandez, Nandhakumar Sekar; Aradai Cabera
