Ratings: Sadiku, Jahouh shine as Mohun Bagan, Odisha FC share spoils
(Courtesy : ISL Media)
Armando Sadiku with a 94th minute equalizer saved Mohun Bagan’s unbeaten run.
The Juggernauts managed to go up to take a 2-0 lead in the first half after a Ahmed Jahouh brace (31’(P), 45+3’). But the Mariners fought back, with Armando Sadiku scoring a brace, including a 94th minute equalizer, to avoid a loss. Along with the goals, drama & red cards spiced up this thriller-cum-entertainment even more.
Mohun Bagan head coach Juan Ferrando was sent off with a red for his ill-behavior with the officials, while Odisha FC forward Mauricio was shown yellow as he was taking too much to come-off the field after getting substituted. Diego was later shown red post final whistle.
Here are the player ratings for the game.
Mohun Bagan Super Giant (by Uttiyo Sarkar)
Vishal Kaith – 5.5
Kaith couldn’t do much about Jahouh’s penalty and was caught off-guard by his surprising second goal too. Made a few brilliant saves to deny Bhumij a late goal.
Asish Rai –6.0
Rai was quite proactive on the right in making 13 possesion recoveries, but couldn’t do much about both goals generating from his side.
Hector Yuste – 7.0
Yuste was again troubled by Odisha’s movement and was caught out of position for the second. Made five clearances and played a key flicked header to set up Sadku’s second.
Brendan Hamill – 6.0
Hamill was impressive in winning key duels against Diego Mauricio & co and recovering the ball well. Caught in a vulnerable position for the second goal and struggled against the fast-breaks again.
Subashish Bose – 6.0
Bose was unlucky to give away the penalty with a sloppy handball, but didn’t do much wrong beyond that. Won seven duels, including 4/4 aerial duels.
Anirudh Thapa – 5.0
Sustained an unfortunate hand injury in the first half but tried to play through the pain. Struggled to protect his backline or win challenges and got outwitted for the second.
Sahal Abdul Samad – 5.0
Sahal was unable to create anything in the first half and lost quite a few duels in midfield. He gave the ball away leading to Jahouh’s second and ended up suffering an injury during the duel too.
Kiyan Nassiri – 7.5
Nassiri maintained his impressive form by being a real livewire in the attack. He moved into the empty pockets of space seamlessly, won the ball back in key areas and created quite a few chances. Set up Sadiku’s goal with a nice pass.
Liston Colaco – 7.0
Colaco made himself a menacing figure with his dribbling runs, getting past multiple defenders with his runs. Contributed defensively and played the long ball leading to the second goal.
Armando Sadiku – 7.5
Sadiku had a real topsy-turvy outing for the Mariners. He missed a few golden opportunities, sending shots into the stands from key areas. But then scored a clever goal to pull one back for his side and made up for his misses with a clinical finish for the equalizer.
Jason Cummings – 5.5
Cummings had another underwhelming outing up-front for Mohun Bagan. Didn’t seem to have that much chemistry with Sadiku and unable to get himself into any major goal-scoring position.
Glan Martins – N/R
Played under 20 minutes before having to be substituted due to an injury.
Lalrinaliana Hnamte – 6.0
Hnamte helped improve his side’s flow in getting the ball from his own half into the opposition half with nice passes.
Deepak Tangri – 6.0
Gave his backline slightly more protection by playing deep and winning possession a few times.
Odisha FC (By Sattyik Sarkar)
Amrinder Singh – 6.5
Amrinder made some regulation punches and collections. Was completely outplayed and stood like a spectator for Armando Sadiku’s goal.
Amey Ranawade – 6
Was outwitted by Liston Colaco in the budding stages of the game. Offensively, his crossing was not up to the mark.
Narender Gahlot – 6.5
In the initial stages of the game struggled in pace with Liston on one occasion. Saw a yellow card for committing a foul on Liston during the same movement. Slowly grew in stature and partnered well with Carlos Delgado.
Carlos Delgado – 7
Marshalled the defence but could have done better regarding Sadiku’s goal.
Jerry Lalrinzuala – 6.5
Received a yellow card in the 27th minute. Defensively, he was okayish but offensively he should have been better.
Ahmed Jahouh – 8
Converted a penalty in the 31st minute for his side’s first goal. Won the ball from Sahal and gave the ball to Diego Mauricio, who in return passed it back to Jahouh, and the man netted his second goal on the evening.
Puitea – 7.5
Contributing in earning the penalty for his side in the 30th minute. Received a yellow card in the 44th minute. Overall, his partnership with Jahouh and later Lenny Rodrigues was commedable.
Jerry Mawihmingthanga – 5.5
Missed a 50-50 chance in the 19th minute as his shot was blocked by a Mohun Bagan defender. Taken off at half time.
Cy Goddard – 7
He didn’t register an assist or a goal but his work-rate was astonishing. Orchestrated the game but may be he was shadowed by Jahouh’s brilliant outing.
Isak Ralte – 6.5
His cross was the one from where Puitea headed the ball onto a Mohun Bagan defender to earn a spot-kick. Was subsituted in the half time.
Diego Mauricio – 7
Assisted Ahmed Jahouh for his second goal. Used his physicality to some extent to fight against the likes of Hector Yuste and Brendan Hamill.

Replaced Jerry Mawihmingthanga at half time. Didn’t do anything worth noticing.
Roy Krishna – 6
Chased down the Mohun Bagan defenders. Didn’t create the impact he did last time against Mohun Bagan.
Lenny Rodrigues – 5.5
Lenny was handed the job of shouldering Jahouh’s responsibilities but he somewhat looked a bit unsteady.
