ATK Mohun Bagan FC
Amrinder Singh (7.5/10): ATK Goalkeeper Took responsibility at the back as he made some good saves. Did the sweeper-keeper role as well at times. Very good with his foot. A good display overall from him.
Prabir Das (7.7/10): Deployed as a wing-back today. Got in a lot of crosses into the box for Krishna. Some of his crosses were pin-point perfect. Had a good attempt on target in the opening stages of the game. Looked very active in the right channel.
Sandesh Jhingan (6.7/10): A relatively quiet night for the centre back. Made some tackles and clearances. Anticipated the threats well. Saw a lot of the ball. Subbed off at the 69th minute.
Pritam Kotal (7.5/10): Deployed as a centre back today, he had an outstanding performance. Anticipated the opponent runs and intercepted the balls a number of times. Passing accuracy was very high.
Hugo Boumous (7.1/10): Missed an open goal in the first half. A really bad display for a player of his status in the first half. Revived himself a lot in the second half by linking up well with his teammates and creating some great chances.
Kiyan Nassiri (7.0/10): Tracked back really brilliantly and denied a great goal scoring attempt of Hyderabad in the closing stages of the first half. Showed his pace down the wings. Did good overall.
Joni Kauko (7.6/10): The big man was a perfect box-to-to midfielder. Joined the attack many times. Was into the box for crosses. Had 2-3 key passes. Strong presence in the midfield and very composed on the ball. Dribbled well as well.
Liston Colaco (6.9/10): The winger was constantly fed by his midfielders to spark the attack. Was trying his best to make things happen. Did great and almost scored had it not been Juanan’s brilliance. Needed to show more physicality.
Roy Krishna (7.2/10): Tremendous work rate on display from Bagan’s target man. Created some attacks. Showed his great upper body strength. Brought his team into the match with a goal.
Carl McHugh (6.9/10): Was the lone man in the midfield when his team was on the attack. Did very well to cover for his defence during counterattacks. A strong figure aerially and on-ground duels. Distributed the ball well as well.
Subhashish Bose (6.5/10): An average game. Got in a number of crosses into the box. Was always looking for Liston to make the run behind the defence. He was the player with one of the most number of touches in the game.
