Indian Super League (ISL) outfit Odisha FC will host Maldives’ Maziya Sports and Recreation Club in their third Group D match of AFC Cup 2023-24 at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar, Odisha on Tuesday, October 24. The Odisha vs Maziya AFC Cup 2023-24 match will kick off at 5:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
Under head coach Sergio Lobera, Odisha FC will be desperate to register their first win in the ongoing AFC Cup after losing both their matches so far.
The Kalinga Warriors started their AFC Cup 2023-24 campaign on a disappointing note as they suffered a 0-4 defeat against Mohun Bagan Super Giant in their opening fixture.
Odisha later went down to Bangladesh’s Bashundhara Kings 2-3 away from home in their second Group D match.
With two back-to-back defeats, Sergio Lobera’s men are languishing at the bottom of the AFC Cup 2023-24 Group D standings.
On the other hand, Maziya began their AFC Cup 2023-24 campaign with a comprehensive 3-1 win over Bashundhara Kings at the Maldives National Football Stadium.
However, they later suffered their first defeat as they lost 1-2 to Mohun Bagan in their previous group match.
Having accumulated three points from two matches, Maziya are placed second in the Group D standings, three points behind leaders Mohun Bagan.
The likes of Diego Maurício, Ahmed Jahouh, Cy Goddard, Carlos Delgado, Jerry Mawihmingthanga and Amrinder Singh will be some of the players to watch out for Odisha on Tuesday.
