Indian Super League is all to set for fixtures of week 5. In the fourth week of this season, we saw some great duels. The teams are now hopefully all charged up after their matches last week. It’s been a great start to the season. Defending Champions Hyderabad FC have continued to show their domination. As a result, they are sitting undefeated on top of the table, followed by Odisha FC and Mumbai City FC. However, NorthEast United is already having a tough season with 4 defeats in their 4 matches. Football Monk takes a brief look at the upcoming matches of Matchweek 5.

FC Goa vs Jamshedpur FC (3/11/2022, 19:30 IST)

Jamshedpur FC is coming with a win, while FC Goa suffered their first blow this season last week. FC Goa had a great start to the season with 2 wins in 2 games. Moroccan International, Noah Sadaoui has been their key find this season. The team narrowly missed the equalizing goal against Hyderabad which cost them the game. Hence, The Red Miners are looking back on track after their win on Sunday.

With Peter Hartley back in the starting XI, the team looked much more balanced. Both teams will be looking for the 3 points non less. It won’t be any surprise if Head Coaches decide to play their best XI on Thursday. The match will be played at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, thus giving FC Goa their home advantage.

East Bengal FC vs Chennaiyin FC (4/11/2022, 19:30 IST)

East Bengal will host Chennaiyin FC at Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, Kolkata this Friday. Both teams dealt a defeat in their last games. Chennaiyin Head coach Thomas Brdaric was disappointed with the team’s performance against FC Goa. The team lacked finishing touches in their previous match. It will be interesting to see what changes the Chennaiyin squad will make for this game. East Bengal on the other hand had not been quite impressive this season. The team has only managed to defeat NorthEast United this season so far. Thus, the team might look to make some defensive changes.

Hyderabad FC vs Odisha FC (5/11/2022, 17:30 IST)

The game to watch out for this week. The league’s top two will go head-to-head this Saturday. Hyderabad is hosting Odisha at G.M.C. Balayogi Athletic Stadium, Hyderabad. Fans can expect a goal-fest in this match. The battle between Ogbeche and Amrinder Singh will be interesting to watch as both players have been in fine form. Both teams are coming with a win from their respective previous fixture.

Another exciting match on Saturday will be played between the 2 teams at the bottom of the table. North East United will host Kerala Blasters FC at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati.

However, the challenge that the host team will provide would be a difficult one. Mumbai has been undefeated so far this season. Pereyra Diaz, Greg Stewart, and Chhangte all possess great striking power. The team has been very organized for far. Thus fans can expect another goal-fest at this last match of the week.
