On Thursday, February 2, Odisha FC and Chennaiyin FC will meet at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium. Odisha has lost their previous match against ATK Mohun Bagan by a score of 2-0 going into this one. The Odisha-based team is seventh in the ISL 2022-23 standings with 22 points from 15 games so far. Their results have fluctuated recently, and they have lost their last two matches.
In a similar vein, Chennai has had a turbulent season thus far. They currently have 17 points from 15 games, which puts them eighth in the ISL table. In their most recent ISL outing, they were hammered 3-1 by Bengaluru FC, leaving them winless in their previous five contests. Odisha and Chennaiyin last met on November 24 at the Kalinga Stadium.

|Venue:||Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Chennai).|
A draw would be fair given their recent slumps in form; however, as we have repeatedly seen, any team can beat any other team on any given day.
Having said that, the Juggernauts will have a slight advantage because a draw will still keep them in the race for sixth place. On the other hand, a draw will put pressure on Brdaric’s team, so they should come out firing in front of their home crowd.
If we examine the seven matches that have been played between Odisha and Chennaiyin, CFC has won two games and OFC has won two games. There was a draw in three games. Surprisingly, the Kalinga Warriors have a lopsided record against the Chennai-based club. In the 17 meetings between the two teams, Gambau’s team has won seven of those matches. The Marina Machans, on the other hand, have only won three matches, and seven of those matches have ended in a tie.
Injuries have hampered Brdaric’s team, which has forced the German to make numerous substitutions. The Marina Machans’ recent slump in performance has coincided with Abdenasser El Khayati’s absence, as they have struggled to score goals while also playing shaky defense.
The coach has stuck with a 4-2-3-1 formation despite their struggles. A settled back four of Ajith Kumar, Fallou Diagne, Vafa Hakhamaneshi, and Aakash Sangwan will keep Samik Mitra in goal.
