The Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 season has simply been remarkable thus far. The season, which has already overseen a plethora of records being created and broken, will unravel additional drama as teams continue to fight for the top six spots.

With Mumbai City FC and Hyderabad FC cozying up in the top two spots respectively and Kerala Blasters FC, Bengaluru FC and ATK Mohun Bagan joining them in the playoffs, there is just one playoff spot up for grabs. FC Goa and Odisha FC are the two teams that remain in contention for the final playoff spot.

ATK Mohun Bagan have assured themselves a playoff spot after a win against Kerala Blasters FC. To finish in the top four, ATK Mohun Bagan need to win their final game against East Bengal FC, and ensure that they finish with a better goal difference over Kerala Blasters FC and Bengaluru FC.

As far as the battle for the top four is concerned, Kerala Blasters FC need to beat Hyderabad FC and hope for Bengaluru FC to drop points.Placed sixth in the ISL standings, Odisha FC just need to avoid defeat in their final league fixture to secure a place in the playoffs.

The positive for FC Goa is that they have a superior head-to-head record against the Juggernauts, so if they are tied on points with Odisha FC at the end of the season, they will qualify for the playoffs.
