EXPECTED GOALS [xG]

ISL 2019-20 Jamshedpur FC vs Odisha FC

xG Analysis by Amrit

  • First good game of the season as Jamshedpur fought their way to a win.
  • Piti looks like a sensational player, hard to believe he’s 38.
  • Iriondo’s organization looks great – watch out for the set pieces.
  • For OFC, it’s the same as last year – lack of cutting edge.

HIGHLIGHTS

CONCLUSION

ISL 2019-20: A 10-man Jamshedpur FC eked out a win over newly minted Odisha FC whose familiar failings are still not a thing of the past.

  • Jamshedpur started in a 3-5-2 formation and the new manager Antonio Iriondo’s approach suggests they will be an exciting team to watch this season.
  • The Spaniards signed by the Red Miners have a lot of quality in them with the 38-year-old Piti exceptional on the night.
  • Odisha FC (previously Delhi Dynamos FC) under Josep Gombau played good football, but their finishing and passing in the final third left much to be desired like last season.
  • Not being able to press the advantage after Jamshedpur FC went down to 10 men in the first half means Odisha need to deeply introspect.
