Bagan split points with CCFC. Both team scored a goal each in the second half. Both couls have scored one more but failed.
Bagan defence looked compact but made one mistake and Chennai utilised that opportunity to score the equaliser after an early second half scored by Sony Norde.
Sony yet again showed magic in the groumd , one goal, followed by few movements on and off the ball that made the supporters happy. He was selected as Hero of the match.
Defence got Kima back and looked compact. However Arijit still needs tons of improvements. Coach cannconsider Dalraj or Kima once Sukhdeb joins central defence. Kinsley perhaps played his best game in this season. Sankar played well too. He is the best bet in the current Bagan squad as goalie.
Ranawade played well as replacement of Mahata, but missed an opportunity to score a goal from 6 yards. His shot went out, and that miss became costly. Yuta and Sourav did well to block Chennai moves. Henry was the sole striker and was unable to convert some half chances to goals.
Omar is yet to show his magic, he is quickly turning out as a hard worker who ia yet to show some skills. Having D’Silva as his substitute was however a wrong choice.
Dicka replaced Henry, but did not do much in the game. Coach might have avoided this change too.
Bagan has been.playimg defensive the moment they get a lead. This is becoming costly for Bagan. The coach should reconsider this strategy as this strategy is leading to points getting lost in vital matches.
