The Nizams earned their first-leg revenge over the Mariners.
Hyderabad FC solidified a second-place finish in the Indian Super League (ISL 2022-23) league stages with a gritty 1-0 win over ATK Mohun Bagan on Tuesday. A goal from super-sub Bartholomew Ogbeche in the 86th minute was enough to give them the win. The loss also dealt a blow to ATKMB’s playoff chances, extending their winless run to three games.
Here are the player ratings for the game.
Hyderabad FC (By Praketh Reddy)
Gurmeet Singh – 7.5
The keeper continued his fine run of form and although was not troubled much, he was solid in goal and made a total of three saves in the game.
Nikhil Poojary – 7.0
The right-back had a decent game and was majorly responsible for keeping the attack of ATK Mohun Bagan quite. He was defensively solid and put in five tackles.
Chinglensana Singh – 7.5
Having enjoyed a return to the starting XI, Singh had a solid outing and helped his team keep a clean sheet. He also had an 82% pass accuracy.
Odei Onaindia – 8.0
The go to centre-back was yet again instrumental defensively, and gave the away side no sniff.
Akash Mishra – 7.5
The left-back was not of a great threat attacking-wise, but he did his defensive duties well and helped the team get the clean sheet and the win.
Hitesh Sharma – 6.0
Just like the previous game, the midfielder got substituted at half time after having another disappointing first half. He failed to create much with the ball and was not active in the game.
Borja Herrera – 7.5
The Spanish midfielder was good defensively, and also got the crucial assist for the winning goal. He created the most chances with three and also made three interceptions.
Mohammad Yasir – 6.5
The right winger did not have as much impact as he would have liked in the game and got substituted in the 85th minute.
Joel Chianese – 7.0
Another good outing for Chianese as he took decent set0pieces and created one chance.
Halicharan Narzary – 7.0
Narzary could not get into the game much and in a tight fixture dominated by defence, he could not create a lot of chances. He got subbed off in the second half and finished with 17 passes.
Javier Siverio – 6.5
Leading the line for the home team, the Spaniard missed Big Bart alongside him and just could not get into the game. With only one shot in the entire encounter, he came off with 10 minutes to go.
Sahil Tavora – 7.0
Sahil came on in the second half and provided fresh energy and impetus to the Hyderabad FC midfield. He had a 95% pass accuracy and was crucial for the team in the second half.
Rohit Danu – 7.0
Danu came on in the 74th minute and performed his duties well.
Bartholomew Ogbeche – 8.5
Having only come on in the 79th minute, Bartholomew Ogbeche was the man of the moment for the home team as he scored the crucial winner to hand Hyderabad FC the win over ATK Mohun Bagan. His cameo was the difference between both teams.

Vishal Kaith – 7.0
Vishal continued his admirable form with another impressive display. Made three key saves, including a super sharp one to deny Hyderabad an early goal – but failed to grasp out the winner.
Pritam Kotal – 6.0
Kotal worked hard to keep Halicharan Narzary relatively quiet. Read the game well to avert danger, making three blocks, three clearances and a tackle.
Brendan Hamill – 6.5
Hamill did a solid job to keep the menacing Hyderabad FC forward Siverio quiet, neutralizing his threat with his composed defence. Marshalled a solid three-man backline, making five clearances and three blocks.
Slavko Damjanovic – 5.0
Slavko was arguably ATKMB’s most aggressive defender in his first start. He made four tackles, two interceptions and two blocks. However, Slavko overcommitted at times and it cost him late on – as he got outsmarted by Ogbeche before his goal.
Asish Rai – 6.0
Rai put in a topsy-turvy effort against his former side. He dealt pretty well with Yasir, making three interceptions and two blocks. Baited into some fouls and lacked that needed quality in the final third.
Glan Martins – 7.5
A real livewire through the hour-mark. He covered a lot of ground to frustrate the hosts in midfield. Martins made four tackles, three interceptions and three blocks in an impressive outing before getting injured.
Puitea – 6.5
Puitea progressed the ball well into the final third and created a nice chance for Manvir Singh as well. Aggressive in midfield, making two tackles and two blocks.
Federico Gallego – 6.5
Gallego played in a slightly more withdrawn midfield role and that actually benefitted him. Looked more comfortable and created three chances, mostly from the deep. However, his final product was poor and he missed a few chances too!
Manvir Singh – 6.0
Playing in a left-wing-back role, Singh worked hard to provide defensive cover. He made three tackles and one block, but failed to create anything big. His most prominent moment was a shot that whisked over the bar in the first half.
Liston Colaco – 4.5
Colaco looked a bigger threat on counter-attacks, dancing into empty spaces pretty well. But his final product was again horrible, as he ended up missing some decent chances.

Dimitri Petratos – 6.5
Dimitri was yet again left to do way too much in the final third. Dropped deep to set up things for his teammates and delivered some inviting crosses. Tested the goalkeeper with a few menacing efforts, but failed to get any promising scoring chances.
Lalrinliana Hnamte – 6.0
Passed the ball around really well but couldn’t really create anything big.
Kiyan Nassiri – 6.5
Added energy to his side’s attack after coming on and set up a nice chance for Dimitri on a counter-attack.
