The stalemate saw some below-par play on the field, especially from the away team.
NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters played out a 0-0 draw at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati. The draw wasn’t a good result for either of the teams, as both are out of the race for the playoffs. Here are the Indian player ratings from NorthEast United Vs Kerala Blasters:
Subhasish Roy Chowdhury- 7.0
Although, he didn’t have the most eventful of nights, the NorthEast goalkeeper made some spectacular saves when called upon, including a brilliant one from a Holicharan Narzary shot in the 60th minute.
Provat Lakra- 5.5
Even though the midfielder started the match, he picked up a knock early in the first half and was substituted off in the 24th minute. He had very little time to make an impact on the match.
Rakesh Pradhan- 7.0
The NorthEast United left-back put in a proper shift, keeping Seityasen at bay defensively, while going forward to support his winger with any chance he got.
The only positive from a rather pedestrian midfield display. Lalengmawia looked in control every time he was given the ball and it looked like every NorthEast United attack went through him.
Milan Singh- 6.0
Didn’t have the best of nights. Playing in midfield, he hardly had any say in the chances created.
Ninthoinganba Meetei- 6.0
Another Indian youngster from NorthEast United who had a night to forget. Playing on the right wing, the young No. 7 didn’t seem to be in the game for most of the match.
Wayne Vaz- 6.5
Came on in place of Lakra in the middle of the first half and put in a neat enough display. He was given the task of marking Narzary which provided him little chance of going forward.
Nikhil Kadam- 6.5
Came on at half-time and started very lively. Kadam had the best chance of the match, but shot directly at the Kerala Blasters goalkeeper.
Bilal Khan- 6.5
The Kerala Blasters goalkeeper had very little to do in the whole match, but did his job perfectly when called upon which includes a brilliant save from a Kadam shot.
The defender put in a proper shift to keep the NorthEast attack at bay especially Simon Lundevall in the first half.
Jessel Carneiro- 6.5
Jessel had an eventful night and never missed a single chance to go forward. He also put in some good deliveries from the set-pieces he took.
Seityasen Singh- 5.0
Another one of the Indian players who had a night to forget. Seityasen created no chance throughout the whole match and had a hard time getting past Rakesh Pradhan.
Halicharan Narzary- 7.0
Easily the best Indian player on the pitch. Always had space on the left wing and created the most chances for Kerala Blasters.
Sahal Abdul Samad- 5.5
Another disappointing match for this very talented Indian midfielder. Did have many touches of the ball, but could do very little with it.
Rahul Praveen- N/A
Came on in place of Seityasen Singh and had very little time to impact the game.
Mohammed Rafi- N/A
Came on in place of Sahal and he too didn’t have any time to make a proper impact.
