I have tried many things to make sections start in odd pages and I can't get it to work. \cleardoublepage makes it to start on even numbers, and setting openleft on document class didn't help.

I am currently using the article class.

What am I missing here?

Class article is by default oneside, and doesn't make the difference between odd or even pages. Add twoside in the options, and use \cleardoublepage between sections:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt,twoside]{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\section{One}
\blindtext
\cleardoublepage
\section{two}
\blindtext
\end{document}

If you fear to forget it, you can add it to \section command by using etoolbox:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt,twoside]{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\pretocmd{\section}{\cleardoublepage}{}{}
\begin{document}
\section{One}
\blindtext
\section{two}
\blindtext
\end{document}

which does the same thing without explicit \cleardoublepage.
