This was the season’s first goalless draw.
Odisha FC and ATK Mohun Bagan played out a goalless draw at the Kalinga Stadium as the Indian Super League (ISL 2022-23) action resumed after a short break on Thursday. The home team certainly dominated the proceedings by taking 18 shots but their inefficient finishing coupled with some sturdy defending by Juan Ferrando’s men meant that the scoreline was not troubled at the end of 90 minutes.
ATK Mohun Bagan and Odisha are placed third and fourth in the standings respectively, after 10 games each and they will be ruing missing out on scalping three points from this match to build a greater distance between them in the table.

ATK Mohun Bagan (By Tarkesh Jha)
Vishal Kaith – 6
Kaith made a couple of saves along with three clearances and punches as well. However, only two of Odisha’s shots were aimed at goal so the custodian wasn’t called to action frequently.
Asish Rai – 6
Rai made a couple of crosses, clearances and interceptions each in addition to four tackles to round off an all-round performance at the back.
Pritam Kotal – 6
Kotal put in four tackles and interceptions each along with a block to ensure that Odisha’s dynamic frontline don’t get the better of the visitors’ backline.
Brendan Hamill – 7
The Australian centre-back kept things tidy in defence – maintaining a 92 per cent passing accuracy in addition to making four tackles and clearances each.
Subhasish Bose – 6
Bose made eight clearances and even put in a cross along with tackling thrice as he was industriously involved in keeping his flank free from any incisive moves by the home team.
Deepak Tangri – 6.5
Tangri registered a couple of shots, one of which was targeted at goal, and even made nine tackles and two clearances. He kept a 75 per cent passing accuracy and also created a goal-scoring opportunity.
Carl McHugh – 6
With five tackles and two interceptions, McHugh looked to push things affirmatively forward from the base of the midfield. He took a shot on target too, but couldn’t help his team break the deadlock in the end.
Liston Colaco – 5.5
Colaco took two shots, out of which one was on target, and created a goal-scoring opportunity too! The 24-year-old also tackled twice but couldn’t help his side get the ball into the back of the net eventually.

Dimitri Petratos – 6
Petratos attempted 30 passes, indicating that he was intensely involved in the build-up process. He constantly switched to the wings, putting in four crosses along with tackling and intercepting twice each. However, the forward would have desired greater efficiency from his end to help his team snatch three points from the game.
Ashique Kuruniyan – 5
Kuruniyan won four fouls but could complete only nine passes in 90 minutes. He delivered a cross but Ferrando would want greater creativity from his attackers.
Md. Fardin Ali Molla – 4
The 20-year-old couldn’t make the most of this rare start, leading the frontline, as he completed only three passes and was hauled off at half time.
Kiyan Nassiri– 5
Kiyan came on for Fardin and was fairly more engaged in the proceedings – making six passes and delivering one cross. But ATK Mohun Bagan seemed to lack the presence of an imposing figure up top in attack.
Hugo Boumous – 5
Boumous played for only 11 minutes but immediately became the centre of attraction, initiating moves, taking on players and winning multiple fouls in that short while.
Lalrinliana Hnamte – N/A
