EXPECTED GOALS [xG]

ISL 2019-20 Northeast United FC vs Odisha FC

xG Analysis by Amrit

  • Odisha started slowly but grew into the game and eventually equalized.
  • They looked good to take the win just before they committed hara-kiri with the card.
  • The card changed the game and NE snuck a winner in via a set piece 1 chance, 1 goal for Gyan – the match winner.

HIGHLIGHTS

TALKING POINTS

A touch of class by the Baby Jet Asamoah Gyan helped NEUFC to three points while a valiant Odisha FC slumped to their second defeat.

  • A momentary lapse of concentration in the second minute meant Odisha FC were chasing the game right from the beginning.
  • Odisha FC matched every step Northeast United took until they were undone by a red card and lack of decisiveness in the final third.
  • NEUFC’s experienced custodian Subhashish Roy Chowdhury once again turned up with an excellent performance behind the sticks – the veteran is probably the most under-rated signing of the season.
  • Gyan looks at ease in the Indian Super League – his touch and positioning sets him at a crest above the rest.
