Let us take a look at the top 5 foreigners for both the teams.
ISL: ODISHA FC TOP 5 FOREIGNERS:
Diego Mauricio: Diego Mauricio has been the stellar performer for Odisha FC this season despite the team having a poor time. Mauricio has so far played in all 10 games and
started 9 of them, and scored 5 goals. With a goals per game of 0.5, Mauricio has a very important role to play if Odisha are to rejuvenate and recover their season.
Cole Alexander: The Russian midfielder has started 9 matches, and has been a midfield lynchpin so far. Averaging 2.7 interceptions per game and 2.5 tackles per game, the
central midfielder has been an important cog in an otherwise malfunctioning Odisha FC machine.
Steven Taylor: The Englishman, most notable for his spell in the Premier League at Newcastle United, has been a mainstay in the Odisha FC defence. Averaging 4.3 clearances per game and scoring 2 goals, Taylor needs to keep his head in and lead Odisha’s backline till the end of the season.
Diawandou Diagne: Steven Taylor’s defensive teammate, Diawandou Diagne has started 8 games so far. With 3 clearances per game and 1.4 tackles per game, Diagne has a done
arguably well but still has room for improvement.

Marcelinho: Probably the most underwhelming part of Odisha’s season. Marcelinho arrived with great expectations for Odisha FC but has filed to live up to his billing. Having only
started 3 games and making a total of 7 appearances, he has failed to notch any goal or
assist this season.

ISL:  CHENNAIYIN FC TOP 5 FOREIGNERS:
Manuel Lanzarote: Reportedly Crivellaro’s replacement, the ex-FC Goa and ATK midfielder is tipped to take charge and take Chennaiyin FC up the table and into the top 4
positions. How he gels in with the squad and Csaba Laszlo’s tactics remains to be seen.
Eli Sabia: Ever-present in the league for Chennaiyin, Eli Sabia has played every minute in the Indian Super League so far. In what is the third best defence in the league, Eli has had
4 clean sheets, 3 clearances per game and 0.8 tackles per game. If Chennaiyin are to move up the table, Eli retaining top form is absolutely key for them.

Enes Sipovic: Sabia’s defensive partner, Enes Sipovic has been impressive as well. Having played 9 matches, he has started 8 of them. He averages 3.7clearances per game
and has 1.7 tackles per game.Esmael Goncalves: The Guinea-Bissau striker has a huge role to play in the second half of the season for Chennaiyin FC. Goncalves has so far scored one goal in six appearances.

Jakub Sylvestr: The Slovakian striker needs to pul up his socks if Chennaiyin are to challenge for the top four. Jakub has scored only one goal this season, while he has
missed 6 big chances in what is a massive waste in a well drilled attacking team.
