  Odisha fight back to win a point against Chennai
28 Nov 2019 Team Orisports

Odisha FC fought back twice to hold Chennaiyin FC to 2-2 draw in their sixth and overall 26th match of the Hero Indian Super League at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai today. After a barren first-half, Nerijus Valskis (51’) handed hosts Chennaiyin the lead.

But Odisha equalised through Xisco Hernandez (54’). Valskis thought he had given Chennaiyin the win with a second goal in the 71st minute, but Aridane Santana (82’) ensured Odisha returned from Chennai with a point.

The result sees Chennaiyin climb to eighth spot in the table with five points from six games while Odisha, who played out a third consecutive draw, are sixth with six points. Odisha, as expected, had most of the early possession and the first real chance did come their way.


Aridane Santana was given the Maruti Suzuki Limitless Player of the Match Award. Odisha FC home player Shubham Sarangi bagged the ISL Emerging Player of the Match Award while Nerijus Valskis received the Hero of the Match Award.
