NEUFC vs ODS Dream11 Team News:
The hosts have no injury concerns ahead of this match but a change or two could still happen to the side which started in Bengaluru.
One spot which is up for grabs is the goalkeeping position. Head coach Robert Jarni surprised everybody when he named Subhasish Roy Chowdhury in goal in the first game, leaving Pawan Kumar on the bench. But Kumar may have to wait a little more to get into the playing 11 as Roy did enough to get another start.
The back four should remain the same as José David Leudo and Lalthathanga Khawlhring both protecting the backline just as they did against Bengaluru.
Striker Asamoah Gyan had a rather quiet outing and will be looking for a more impact performance in this match.
Just like NorthEast, the visitors also have a clean bill of health ahead of this match.
But Josep Gambau won't be happy from the performances of some his players as his team threw away a golden chance of winning all three points against 10-man Jamshedpur FC in the season-opener.
Though bossing the possession against a 10-man Jamshedpur side was easy, Odisha hardly troubled the hosts.
Diawandou Diagne could make his ISL debut in this match.
