ISL 2020-21 ATK Mohun Bagan winning run continues, Roy Krishna’s last minute header stumps Odisha FC

ISL 2020-21 ATK Mohun Bagan beat Odisha FC, goes top of points table: Roy Krishna strikes for ATK Mohun Bagan to seal the game for them at the last minute against Odisha FC. With this win ATK reach on the top of the points table with 3 wins.

Krishna (90+5′) netted his third goal in as many games to ensure the Mariners climbed to the top of the ISL table.

Both the teams made one change to their line-ups. Manvir Singh, making his 50th appearance, was handed his first start for the Mariners, while Diego Mauricio started upfront for Odisha FC.

The first half proved to be a cagey affair but both the sides failed to grab their chances and take the lead.

ATKMB dominated the early exchanges and constantly raided the opposition box. However, Odisha did well to close down the spaces and keep things tight at the back.

Despite the dominance displayed by Habas’ side early on, it was Odisha who missed a great opportunity to go ahead after the break.

A well-worked set-piece routine in the 38th minute saw Cole Alexander whip in a dangerous cross into the box. Jacob Tratt, unmarked, got to the end of it but failed to get his header on target.

Despite the miss, Odisha FC kept knocking on the door only for ATKMB’s defense to thwart the danger.

Habas’ side also had a big opportunity to break the deadlock just before the break. Subhashish Bose whipped in a teasing cross in the box for Krishna. The striker got in between two defenders but his header went over the bar.

The second half was entertaining with both sides threatening one another.

It was Stuart Baxter’s side that started strong after the break but were once again, unable to penetrate the ATKMB defense. The Mariners also had their chances but weren’t clinical in front of the goal.

But just when it seemed like the game would be heading for a draw, a perfectly executed set-piece during injury time helped Habas’ men secure the three points.

Tiri sent the ball into the box and Sandesh Jhingan flicked the ball towards goal, which was headed in by Krishna.

The result ensured Odisha FC’s winless run continued.

THE PREDICTION

Odisha FC host ATK Mohun Bagan in their next fixture of Indian Super League game of the season. This represents the third fixture for the newly formed ATK Mohun Bagan, a merger between ATK Football Club and Mohun Bagan. ATK were champions of the 2020 ISL season and this new club will begin this new season as one of the favourites to win it all again.

With the core overseas players of that title winning side retained alongside new additions such as Bradden Inman and centre-back Tiri, ATK Mohun Bagan are expected to mark their first ever league game with victory here. Having said that, they must be wary of Kerala’s attacking threat that includes new signing Gary Hooper and it would be no surprise to see the hosts find the net in this one.

Prediction: ATK Mohun Bagan 3-1 Odisha FC
