ISL 2019-20 HIGHLIGHTS, Kerala Blasters FC vs Odisha FC: Catch all the live updates from the Indian Super League 2019-20 match between Kerala Blasters FC and Odisha FC through News18 Sports' live blog. Kerala Blasters and Odisha FC played out a 0-0 draw at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi on Thursday. Here's the story of the match: It was an injury-plagued first half with Kerala's captain Jairo Rodrigues pulling up in the third minute and then head injuries forcing Messi Bouli and Aridane Santana out. Sahal Abdul Samad was denied a clear-cut penalty after going on a brilliant mazy run that led Schattorie to having a word with the referee after the half time whistle. The second half saw the play swinging one end to the other even though the home team showed much better play with the ball but none of it came out in chances or shots. Rahul KP was denied by Dorronsoro in the 85th minute and despite Ogbeche being brought on for the last 10 minutes, the net on either side remained undisturbed.

Season six of the Indian Super League is expected to bring a lot of excitement as it is now the top division league of the country and the league-stage table toppers will get a spot in the AFC Champions League playoffs. Kerala Blasters will feel that they should have got more from the game considering Sahal's penaltys shoutout and Rahul KP forcing a save but Odisha FC, who were playing their fourth straight away match, will be happy with a point away from home.

Eelco Schattorie has been taking a lot of question on India's exciting attacking midfielder Sahal Abdul Samad and why he is not a regular in the starting line-up for Kerala Blasters. Here's the coach making his points in big, bold letters.

Nov 8, 2019 6:21 pm (IST)

The Indian Super League points table is currently led by FC Goa after their Thursday night win over Mumbai City FC. Goa lead the table with 8 points from four games while Chennaiyin FC sit at the bottom with just a point from three matches. Hosts Kerala Blasters are third from the bottom with three points from three games and even though Odisha FC have the same points, they are sixth due to better goal difference.

Kerala Blasters take on Odisha FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi on Friday. The hosts are desperate for a win after losing their last two games while Odisha would want to pile on Kerala's misery ahead of the international break.

Kerala Blasters are struggling with injuries and are unlikely to have Mario Arques and Gianni Zuiverloon. They already don't have Sandesh Jhingan, who had a successful knee surgery on Thursday. Kerala haven't been able to create many goal-scoring opportunities for star striker Bartholomew Ogbeche and have been extremely edgy at the back.



Odisha FC's defence would be a bit of a worry as they have conceded six goals in three games and also tend to leak goals in the final 10 minutes. However, their midfield and forward line was fluid in their previous game. Xisco Hernandez's partnership with Aridane Santana and Jerry Mawihmingthanga looks promising and adding the pace of Nandhakumar Sekar to the mix, Kerala's defence could be in for trouble.
