ISL 2019-20 Chennaiyin FC vs ATK

xG Analysis by Amrit:

  • Cliche, but, the internet definition of insanity is “trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
  • Since the start of last season, Chennaiyin have done nothing except change the players they had. Formation, tactics, style – nothing has changed.
  • For once, they tried a set piece today but didn’t execute well. Poorly prepared

Lowest goalscorers from last season – Chennaiyin FC‘s goal drought continues this season while their opponents ATK managed to sneak in a goal to go top of the table.

  • Familiar failings for Chennaiyin as they are yet to score a goal this ISL season. This brings back memories from last season where they finished bottom of the table with 16 goals in 18 league matches.
  • Foreign player recruitment like last season looks questionable with Andre Schembri, Dragos Firtulescu, Rafael Crivellaro and Nerijus Valskis well under-par. The system hasn’t changed either with John Gregory offering little in terms of innovation in his lineups or tactics.
  • In last night’s game, Chennai flattered to deceive after creating multiple opportunities throughout the game, but failed to find the back of the net.
  • Chhangte ran riot in the first half on the left flank with ATK lining up with three at the back, but in the second half the Kolkata side double-teamed and nullified the winger.
  • Atrocious refereeing reared its head again with ATK denied a penalty for a foul on Roy Krishna and were wrongly called offside when through on goal.
  • Chennaiyin’s 36-year-old defender Lucian Goian looks like he has seen better days. The defender laboured through the game and was culpable for the goal they conceded.
