ISL 2017: Weekend Review | 1-25

Talking Points Indian Super League

Monday again! This will help you get through the week, no drama. The latest instalment of 1-25 where we take a numbers-based look at everything ISL (well the games from Fri-Sun). We’ve got one more game this time around in comparison to this time last week; the games we get to dissect are Bengaluru 2-0 FC Goa, Jamshedpur 1-0 NorthEast United, Mumbai City 0-2 Pune City & Delhi Dynamos 1-1 Chennaiyin FC.

Three out of four went as expected with only Chennaiyin’s draw at Delhi upsetting the form apple cart, let’s get stuck in and have a look over everything…


Yellow card apiece in the Bengaluru vs Goa game. Bengaluru came away with the all-important three points.


Shots on target for Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC. They both converted one each. Draw.


Offsides for Jamshedpur & NorthEast United. Watch the line.


Shots on target from outside the area for FC Goa. Speculate to accumulate.


Minutes after making their second substitution, Pune City doubled their lead through Marcelinho. Goal.


Shots in the second half for Bengaluru, five of which were on target. Productive.


Points clear of the top five now for Pune. Nearly clinched their playoff place.


Goals for the season now for the aforementioned Marcelinho. Finisher.


Balls won in the air in the second half by Chennaiyin. Heads up.


Corners in the Mumbai vs Pune match, seven for Mumbai. Swing it in.


Long balls attempted by FC Goa’s Ahmed Jahouh, seven were successful. Ping.


Duels Delhi Dynamos’ Matias Mirabaje got involved with. He won 11 of them. Beast.


Shots for NorthEast. They didn’t score any. Wasteful.


Points ahead of NorthEast. That’s the difference after Jamshedpur took all three points. Mind the gap.


Points. The amount Bengaluru have picked up at home now this season. Tidy.


Aerial battles in the first half of Jamshedpur vs NorthEast. NorthEast won nine of them.


Is the number on the back of Dhanpal Ganesh’s shirt. He had an 89% pass success rate. NIce.


Minutes had passed when a Raju Gaikwad own goal put Pune in the lead. Unlucky.


Duels Marcinho was involved in, he won ten of them. Over 50%.


Accurate passes by Bengaluru’s Nishu Kumar. Well played.


Minutes in between Chennaiyin’s Rene Mihelic coming off the bench and setting up the equaliser. Super-sub.


Minutes after Uche gave Delhi the lead, Mailson equalised. Honours even.


Minutes after getting booked, Dimas Delgado doubled Bengaluru’s lead.


Points for Chennaiyin this season so far. Three-point gap between them and Kerala. Tight.


Points between top & bottom. Bengaluru on the charge.

There we have it, 25 points from the four games over the weekend. That was a bit of fun, wasn’t it? Didn’t take as long this week which is a bonus, let’s see if it’s as easy next week.

Until the next time.
