EXPECTED GOALS [xG]
xG Analysis by Amrit
- A game that neither side really deserved to win, so a draw is probably fair.
- First 45 minutes was all Odisha with Xisco running the show, but, in classic Xisco fashion, it ended 0-0.
- In the 2nd, CFC came back strongly but kept switching off at crucial moments.
- Chennai were all at sea in the first half with Odisha FC keeping possession well and looked threatening moving forward.
- Germanpreet Singh was brought on in place of Saighani and he helped the home side get a grip on the game.
- Chennaiyin took threatening from set-pieces (scored from one) while Odisha FC had no set-piece game to speak of.
- Conceding twice after leading – Chennaiyin have some time to brood and introspect. Their next ISL match is against Jamshedpur FC on Dec. 9.
