ISL Football Results – Odisha Pulled off an Upset 4-2 Win over Mumbai

The First Half

The match began at a rapid pace. Mumbai City FC’s Mourtada Fall gave the ball away with an unforced error in his own half. And this led to Aridai Cabrera then twisting him inside and out before curling a shot at goal.

Subsequently, Mumbai goalkeeper Mohammad Nawaz got both hands on the ball and yet couldn’t stop its rolling into the net.

A few minutes later, though, Ahmed Jahouh found the back of the net to equalize for the Mumbaikar visitors. His sensational curling shot came from almost 25-yards out.

Raynier Fernandes then had a great opportunity to send his team into the lead at the half-hour mark. But the Islanders’ midfielder misdirected his header which flew wide.

However, it was Igor Angulo who finally gave Mumbai City the lead with a precise header from a Jahouh free-kick.

The Second Half

The second half also started off at a rapid pace as Odisha began on the front foot.

Moments after the hour mark, Sahil Tanwar found himself unmarked inside the box. However, he missed a header, from 12-yards away, to score the equaliser.

Ygor Catatau then seemingly scored another goal from the bench but he was adjudged to be in an offside position.

Within seconds, Jerry Mawihmingthanga scored his first goal of the season at the other end. Mawihmingthanga equalised for Odisha with a brave diving header at the far post.

The winger then soon scored OFC’s third goal and his second, thus securing his brace and stunning the league leaders. His powerful drive went straight into the top corner from a tight angle after veering in off the right flank.

To inflict more misery, Jerry turned provider by delivering a pinpoint cross for Jonathas. The latter, in turn, calmly placed his shot in the back of the net to score hosts Odisha’s fourth goal.

Though the match was all but made, Kamaljit Singh saved Catatau’s late headed attempt from point-blank range. So, Odisha held on to their lead and enjoyed their fourth win of the season.
