Its Sangram Mukherjee 0-0 Mohammedan Sporting. It could have been something else – say 5-1 for Mohammedan Sporting – could have been 6-1 or could have been 1-0 for Mohun Bagan had referee given the clean penalty for Odafa.
Whatever could have been the score line – one thing is clear – Mohammedan was better of the two sides – with 80% ball possession. Earlier Dempo and Prayag "played" with Bagan – Mohammedan is the third team in line.
Reason ? A half line that didnot exist and an attacing third out numbered.
Odafa had to work hard getting the ball from defense and trying to score on his own – but was outnumbered each time he tried to do so. If a team has a central defensive midfield in Zeleny, two wingers in Ruidas (U-19 quota) and Gouranga – and is playing against a team whose coach was coached India and iLeague clubs- one can very well understand the kind of supply line Odafa had.
Not much to talk about- Bagan was lucky to get a point from this game.
