India takes the footballing spotlight this Christmas Eve

"Odisha are an even W3-D0-L3 in the ISL this season, but all of those defeats have come in their last four outings"

Back FC Goa to beat Odisha @ 2.255/4

Tobias Gourlay fancies Goa to put the brakes on Odisha in the Indian Super League

Odisha v FC Goa
Friday 14:00

In the Netherlands yesterday, BTTS paid out before half-time as Sparta Rotterdam and RKC Waalwijk reached 1-1 at half-time. It stayed at the way for the second half, but we were already on our way to the subcontinent.

Today we're making a special Christmas Eve foray into the Indian Super League. Seventh-placed Odisha are hosting eighth-placed FC Goa this afternoon and we're backing the visitors to walk away with the result.

Home and away, Odisha are an even W3-D0-L3 in the ISL this season, but all of those defeats have come in their last four outings. The goals have dried up for the Juggernauts, as they've netted only three times in total across those four games. Their most recent appearance at Kalinga brought a 0-4 defeat to second-placed Jamshedpur.

FC Goa have won their last four Super League meetings with Odisha. This term, they have bounced back from a slow start (three straight losses) to take seven points from a possible nine recently. Last time out on the road, they beat East Bengal 4-3. We're backing them to make it two in a row this afternoon. Here's hoping they make it a happy Christmas for all of us.
