  ISL: Odisha FC suffer fourth defeat
BHUBANESWAR,22 Dec 2019 (Team Orisports)

FC Goa handed Odisha FC a 3-0 defeat to go on top of the Hero Indian Super League table at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Goa today. On the other hand, this was the fourth defeat for Odisha FC in nine matches.

Ferran Corominas (19`, 89`) scored a brace and another strike from Brandon Fernandes (85`) was enough to seal the three points. Coro drew first blood in the 19th minute. Jerry Mawihmingthanga was robbed of the ball in his own half by Brandon, and he did well to find Jackichand Singh.

The Manipuri winger produced a defence splitting through ball for Boumous who in turn squared it for Coro inside the box and the striker made no mistake to find the back of the net.

Odisha churned out their first chance of the match when Aridane Santana spotted a run by Guedes and squeezed in a superb through ball for him. But the poor first touch let Santana down and his subsequent shot from a tight angle sailed off-target.

Odisha came close to drawing level in the 59th minute when inch-perfect cross by Das was headed towards goal by Xisco but for an alert Mohammad Nawaz who pulled off a brilliant save to keep the scoreline unchanged. 

Goa scored second goal through Brandon in the 85th minute with a long-range effort after Arshdeep failed to make a routine save. In the 89th minute, Goa further extended their lead when Coro converted from the spot. The two-time Golden Boot winner scored his second of the evening after he was fouled by Aridane inside the box.
