Here are the ratings from the game.
Mohun Bagan (By Rutvij Joshi)
Vishal Kaith – 6
Vishal did a great job organizing his team’s defense and was quite vocal during set-pieces. However, he didn’t have to make many saves because his defenders effectively handled most of Basundhara’s attacks. Unfortunately, he had no chance to stop Dorielton’s goal. In the penalty incident also, he dived on the correct side but could not stop the ball from going in.
Brendan Hamill – 7
Hamill was decent. He man-marked Bangladeshi winger Rakib and played a role of an extended left-back when Mohun Bagan were in possession.
Anwar Ali – 6.5
Anwar was solid at the back. He was comfortable moving the ball around. He took care of all the attacks that came to his end. Was stretchered off late in the game.
Hector Yuste – 7
Hector had a good outing except for one instance of overrunning in a 1v1 situation due to which Bashundhara scored the equalizer.
Asish Rai – 7
Rai was running up and down the wing and bombarding crosses. He got two chances to score before netting the second goal for his side. He however, gave away the penalty which helped Bashundhara equalize for the second time.
Glan Martins – 6
Glan Martins started the game poorly but as the game progressed he settled in. Once Mohun Bagan went ahead he frustrated Robinho & co. with his physical presence.
Sahal Abdul Samad – 6.5
Sahal did not have the best of games as per his standards. He controlled the tempo of the game and got a few half chances but everything went begging.
Hugo Boumous – 5.5
Hugo Boumous had a very negligible influence in the game. He ran into the spaces whenever there was space to penetrate but failed to create any clear cut chances.
Liston Colaco – 7
Liston scored the first goal for Mohun Bagan but only for the linesman to falsely flag him offside. He ran up and down the wing and helped in creating chances but Kings’ Bishwanath Ghosh had him in check.
Dimi Petratos – 9
Dimi was playing very deep inside the midfield to create chances at times. However, his moves yielded fruits and he scored a goal and assisted the other.
Jason Cummings – 6
Cummings was replaced at around the hour-mark. He tried to get past Kazi and score a goal but the latter stood tall.
Armando Sadiku – 6
Sadiku did not receive much supply from his teammates and was left visibly frustrated.
Anirudh Thapa – 5
Thapa came on around the 75th minute and did not match the physicality of the opponents.
Subhasish Bose – 6
Bose injected the much needed stability in defense but was unable to make any noticeable contribution.
Terina Hnamte – N/A
Mehedi Hasan – 6
Conceded the first goal cheaply, as he was nutmegged by Petratos. Couldn’t do much about the second, but made two decent saves.
Bishwanath Ghosh – 7
Was amongst Bashundhara’s liveliest players on the pitch, and a beast in the back. Ghosh made a total of six interceptions, and also won seven ground duels.
Tariq Kazi – 5.5
Didn’t have a great outing, and struggled all night to contain Mohun Bagan’s magnanimous attack. Was subbed off in the 68th minute.
Boburbek Yuldashov – 6
Made a few decent clearances, but was at times caught lacking. The centre-back also played three accurate long balls.
Saad Uddin – 5
Saad was somewhat poor tonight, as both goals were conceded from his wing. The left-back made zero interceptions and clearances, and also lost possession on nine occasions.
Jean Brossou – 7
Played a massive role in the midfield, and kept Sahal ineffective for the majority of the night. Had a 93% passing accuracy, and also won five ground duels.
Asror Gafurov – 5
Only had 31 touches as a midfielder, and lacked accuracy in his passing. Made no real impact on either phases of play, and had a night to forget.
Rakib Hossain – 7.5
Was yet again impressive in attack, and combined brilliantly with Miguel Figueira and Dorielton. Made some exciting forward runs, and also opened up spaces for Robinho and Miguel to run into.
Miguel Figueira – 7
Ran the show in the midfield, and was a constant attacking threat to Mohun Bagan. Made the play fluid for Bashundhara with his smooth and crisp passing.
Robinho – 7.5
Assisted Bashundhara’s first goal and won and converted the penalty to muster up a point for his side. Created a number of incredible chances, and was crucial in the game tonight.
Dorielton – 7
Made an incredible finish to equalise for Bashundhara (first goal), and was dangerous in the upfront. Was denied a second goal by the woodwork, but left no stones unturned with his performance.
Sohel Rana – N/A
Came on in the 68th minute, and had only 11 touches of the ball.
Mohammad Ibrahim – N/A
