ISL 4: Matchday 2 Summary
ISL Round Up Of
Results – Matchday 2
The Hero Indian Super league brought some great and poor start to the life of ten clubs in new campaign and as the league slowly starting to grow its roots we look back on all the action of game week 2 filled with excitement and breath taking stuffs.
The headline of this matchday will always be Bengaluru FC’s impressive start to their first ever includation in Isl. After making their mark against Mumbai in their inaugural match, there was no stepping down from Sunil Chettri and his man to repeat the heroics again. Paartalu was the man of the moment for this game with his duel strike against capital club Delhi Dynamos to register their second victory. Lenny Rodrigues then add again before Kalu Uche marked a conciliation goal from the spot only to see Miku to perish his club completely. This performance in the Kantiveera stadium kept the top place intact for BFC heading into game day 3.
The champions ATK suffered the heaviest home defeat in Isl history when Marcelino and Alfaro partnership demolish them for a stalemate Saltlake stadium return. Terrible errors in the back thrived Pune’s attack and the team which sustains such feared name on the front line will always pounce. That indeed happened. ATK went on to lose 4-1 with Debjit’s golden glove not working out to rescue the club that night.
Even with Berbatov, Hume and CK vineeth in their squad, Kerala failed to strike the net with second game running. Jamshedpur also shared the same stat with both team pushing much on their defense. Both failed to make any clear cut chance and the point were shared.
The most exciting game to wrap up the game day was the game between two neighbours Mumbai City and Fc Goa. Mumbai came back off a defeat to Bengaluru while Goa just edge past Chennaiyan. Both knew this was a fight of their pride and honour. The game started in a full swing with end to end stuff but Mumbai’s rage ultimately made the difference between the two. Everton Santos scored the homeside’s first goal in ISL4 after a goalless opening half on the hour mark. But their joy was short lived as Arana took his chance well to struck the leveller for Goa in 83rd minute. But there was no stopping of Santos to hit the winner four minutes later.
