Striker wins you matches, defence wins you titles

My word Rock Solid defence is this. The style is like “do not dare to step in our half”. The ground is owned, and no joke is allowed there.

If see it technically what would I see, a 5-4-1 formation. Means no attack is allowed approach from Habas. He wanted a clean sheet. He got one. Arindam needed to save for 2 to 3 times in the whole match and he delivered.

The match has been played like this,

  1. goa is trying to find the space
  2. Fails
  3. Back pass.
  4. Repeat.

Comeback of tiri gave the gravity to the ATKMB defence. Mchue as usual briliant.

Igor Angulo had been bottled up by Pronoy and Mchue. Wide stretch defence line with numerical advantage most of the time out played Goan attack.

Manvir was impressive, Jayesh Rane was making some split sprint but absence of prabir was felt.

One Goan defender impressed all in the game that is Seriton.

Defensive pockets in the middle just outplayed Goan creativity. And again in one counter well earned penalty has been beautifully converted by Roy Krishna.


@Shubhayan Great technical review of the game!

Look forward to knowing more about the nuances of the game through your analyses.
