Match 50 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees Kerala Blasters FC take on Odisha FC, at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim, Goa, on Thursday evening.

Odisha FC are still in the hunt for their first win of the season while Kerala Blasters FC are looking to keep their play-off hopes alive. Stuart Baxter’s side lost 3-1 to SC East Bengal in their last fixture, while Kerala Blasters FC were beaten 2-0 by Mumbai City FC in their previous encounter.

The Blasters have kept just two clean sheets this season and have conceded eight goals in the second half - a fact Odisha will look to talk advantage of. Meanwhile, Baxter's side are yet to keep a clean sheet and have conceded 14 goals until now.
