The stalemate kept both outside the top four.

The draw meant that Odisha moved to the sixth position, with 17 points from 12 games, while ATK Mohun Bagan occupy seventh position in the points table, with 16 points from 10 games.
On that note, let’s take a look at Khel Now’s player ratings from the game.
Odisha FC (By Dibyajyoti Das)
Arshdeep Singh- 7.5
Made a total of five saves, a few of them very crucial in keeping Odisha FC in the game.
Lalhrezuala Sailo- 6.0
Liston got the better of him too easily at times, especially in the first half. Provided nothing going forward.
Hector Rodas- 6.5
Did well to keep Krishna and Williams in check in the first half. Had to come off at half-time because of an injury.
Victor Mongil- 7.5
Clearly the star of the Odisha defence. Made a total of three blocks in the game, two of them very crucial in stopping ATKMB from scoring.
Sahil Panwar- 6.0
Another full-back who didn’t have the best of nights. Did little to stop the crosses from coming in and also provided very little going forward.
Thoiba Singh- 7.0
Was a crucial part of the Odisha press that stopped ATKMB from settling on the ball. The midfielder made two interceptions throughout the match.
Isaac Vanmalsawma- 7.0
The midfielder was all over the pitch. Isaac attempted six long balls, five of them were successful.
Jerry Mawihmingthanga- 6.5
Had a quiet first half, but came alive in the second. The winger put in two successful crosses throughout the match.
Liridon Krasniqi- 7.0
Krasniqi was given the creative responsibility for Odisha FC. The Malaysian completed 29 passes, 19 of which were in the opposition half.
Nandhakumar Sekar- 6.5
Wasn’t allowed the same space that he usually gets. Nonetheless the winger still managed to put in two crosses before being substituted in the 72nd minute.
Javi Hernandez- 6.5
Javi played in the centre forward position, but didn’t get too many chances. The forward attempted two shots, but none of them were on target.
Nikhil Prabhu- 6.5
Looked solid after he came on at half-time and completed 15 passes.
Nikhil Raj- 6.0
Came in to replace Nandhakumar, but was unable to provide any positive impact on the game.
Paul Ramfangzauva- N/A
Wasn’t in the match enough to have any impact on the game.

Amrinder Singh- 7.5
The goalkeeper had three saves throughout the game and made three clearances. Singh had a brilliant passing accuracy of 82% as well.

The midfielder had an average outing, as he was subbed off at the 70th minute. He was good with his long balls (four out of six), but couldn’t affect any other part of the match.

He was slightly better than his partner in the midfield, as he had better passing accuracy (85%). Other than that, he wasn’t successful in his duels.
