It was a thrilling second half between the two sides which saw three goals scored.

Josep Gombau’s Odisha FC picked up what was only their second league win of the campaign so far, in a fairly dominant 3-2 success against lowly Hyderabad FC. Although, the scoreline might suggest a close match, the two Hyderabad goals will only be seen as consolation. Goals from Carlos Delgado, Xisco Hernandez and Martin Guedes were the difference between the two teams, as Gombau’s men rose to sixth in the ISL.

Here are the Indian Player Ratings:

Odisha FC

Arshdeep Singh- 6.0

The youngster put up a decent display for most of the match, but probably should’ve done better to stop the second Hyderabad goal.

Shubham Sarangi- 6.5

The full-back got forward whenever the opportunity presented itself in the first half, but was required to put in a more solid defensive performance in the second.

Narayan Das- 6.0

Like his full-back partner, the Indian international got forward at times, but resigned to defending, as the away side began to surge forward in search of goals.

Vinit Rai- 6.0

Although, the youngster didn’t have a very bad game as such, he picked up two yellow cards and was sent off in the second half. Linked up play well while he was on the pitch.

Jerry Mawihmingthanga- 7.5

Made things happen down the right flank for the home side with his powerful running. Played some neat passes into the box for Aridane and Nandha to attack as well.

Nandha Kumar- 7.5

The winger had a couple of excellent chances to put the game to bed in the second half, only to be stopped by the crossbar. Made some sharp runs forward too.

Substitutes

Sajid Dhot- N/A

Didn’t have time to make an impact.

Daniel Lalhlimpuia- N/A

Didn’t have time to make an impact.

Hyderabad FC

Kamaljit Singh- 4.5

The keeper put up what can only be described as a horror show on the night, often seen flailing around the box as the Odisha attackers’ onslaught continued.

Asish Rai- 5.5

The full-back was required to do a lot of defending against the opposition forwards for most of the match. He played a couple of neat balls to get out of pressure as well.

Gurtej Singh- 5.0

Although, he became more comfortable in the latter stages of the game, Gurtej didn’t have a good fixture against Odisha. He played a blind backpass that almost cost his team a goal.

Sahil Panwar- 5.5

Odisha winger Jerry gave Sahil a tough time in the first half, but the Hyderabad defender came back stronger in the second. Did well to maintain possession in difficult situations.

Adil Khan- 6.0

The midfielder was useful in the middle of the park during the second half, often seen intercepting the long forward balls of Odisha. Won the ball from set-pieces as well.

Robin Singh- 5.0

The former Bengaluru FC striker had a fairly poor outing for most of the fixture, but did have a couple of decent touches over the course of the match. Needs to work on his first touch and decision-making.

Nikhil Poojary- 6.5

Probably Hyderabad’s best player on the night, Poojary showed great energy and desire to put himself about and win the ball back. Made some sharp forward passes to open Odisha up as well.

Substitutes

Mohammed Yasir- 6.0

Came on in place of Sahil Panwar, as the away side began to gain confidence and find penetration into the Odisha final third.

Rohit Kumar- 6.5

Although, he was only on the pitch for ten minutes, when the opportunity came, the young midfielder was jolly on the spot to tuck in a second consolation goal.

Abhishek Halder- N/A

Didn’t have time to make an impact.
