Roy Krishna plays 90 minutes in ATK’s defeat

ATK traveled more than 2000km to face FC Goa in the 8th matchweek of Indian Super League. It was an important clash for both teams because this match could change the first positions in the league, and it changed.

Before the beginning of the match, Roy Krishna was awarded with the ISL goal of the week after scoring a tremendous goal in the previous match against Northeast United.

ATK knew that it should be a very difficult match so they adopted a cautious strategy, playing a reactive football with a five-men deep defensive line – it is clear to check once they had only 36% of ball possession. The midfielder’s line was made by three players while Roy Krishna and David Williams played together in the attack.

They had many difficulties in the offensive transition, the midfield players struggled to keep the ball possession so Krishna and Williams were not so participative in the match. The defenders tried lots of long throws for them but they were not successful.

FC Goa opened the scoreboard with a goal scored by Mourtada Fall in the 60th minute. Michael Soosairaj from ATK got injured in the 63rd minute and was replaced by Jobby Justin who needed less than a minute to score for ATK and tie the match.

The goal netted by Justin was not enough and FC Goa managed to find the net once again to win the match by 2-1. According to Sofascore, Roy Krishna played 90 minutes and had a 6.1/10 rate – the worst hate of all players in the match. You can check the highlights by clicking here.
