Super sub Raynier Fernandes scored a worldie in his side’s win against Jamshedpur FC.
A splendid week in the Indian Super League (ISL)! The sixth season of the league has arguably been one of the most exciting ones of all with minimum point difference between the top table teams.
After a rough patch of results, FC Goa have been on a superb run of form with three victories in three games. Two-time Golden Boot winner Ferran Corominas struck twice for the Gaurs in their win against Odisha FC. Brandon Fernandes too got onto the scoresheet to mark a comfortable 3-0 win at home, that leads FC Goa to the league’s summit.
On the other hand, Bengaluru FC continue with their great run of results in a bid to defend the title, with a win against NorthEast United. Sunil Chhetri and Albert Serran both struck in the second half to hand the Blues a convincing victory over a tough opposition.
ATK, however, had a disappointing result on Saturday as they dropped points against bottom-placed Hyderabad FC. The Kolkata-based outfit was rather lucky with the draw as Kamaljit Singh’s late error was capitalised by Roy Krishna. The hosts had superbly come back from a goal down to lead 2-1 as marquee signing Bobo struck twice to cancel out Krishna’s opener. Yet, the draw means ATK now stand third, only a point below Bengaluru FC.
In another game, Mumbai City FC became the first team in the ISL to beat Jamshedpur FC at The Furnace this season. Paulo Machado equalised for the Islanders after centre-back Tiri had given his side a lead and super sub Raynier scored a worldie to ensure them a win.
Meanwhile, Chennaiyin FC continued with their unbeaten run under new head coach Owen Coyle with a 3-1 win at home against the struggling Kerala Blasters. Andre Schembri, Lallianzuala Chhangte and the in-form Nerijus Valskis all scored for the hosts in the first half while Bartholomew Ogbeche pulled one back for the visitors. The Marina Machans were reduced to ten men in the dying minutes of the game when Eli Sabia received his marching orders. However, that didn’t affect in any way the result as Chennaiyin snatched the three points.
