Sporting clube de Goa outsmarted Mohun Bagan in today’s iLeague match. Sporting’s Keita and Kalu scored two goals while Rakesh Masih scored the lone goal for Bagan.
Sporting did well in the following activities –
a) Playing physical games to ensure Odafa and Barreto not getting the upper hand in attackin third
b) used two wings to operate well
With Nabi out due to injury SCG got an advantage. Moreover Odafa and Barreto were covered well. As a result SCG got control of the game through out the game. Sangram did well to save three goals in the first half.
SCG also got benefits from poor refereeing. Referee Sri Krishna failed to save Bagan’s players getting hit (surprisingly in the first leg also similar incident happened and Bagan players did not get enough protection). there were two occasions when Bagan was deprived of a penalty – once when Odafa was pulled down and the other time it was Snehasish.
Assistant Refereeing was equally poor – once the SCG goalie caught the ball outside the penalty box and this was over looked.
However, the day was of SCG – and they beat bagan is all aspects.
Mohun Bagan : Sangram, Subhasish, Kingshuk, Anwar, Nabi (Dhanarajan 28′), Manish, Masih, Zeleny (Lima 78′), Snehasish, Barreto, Odafa (Pradeep 82′).
