And that's it from Bambolim after 90 minutes! Neither of Chennaiyin FC or Odisha FC could break the deadlock and they share the spoils. The match ended in a controversial fashion as Odisha's appeal for a penalty was turned out but Chennaiyin FC were overall slightly better on the day. Rahim Ali missed a couple of huge chances but Jerry L and Jerry M had an intense, interesting battle on the left wing and it was a superb performance from both of them.

An exciting first half that from Chennaiyin FC and Odisha FC! Chennaiyin FC were the dominant side, played good and attacking football but were unable to finish the few chances they had. Arshdeep has had a good day between the sticks so far, making three crucial saves, one being right before half time whistle. As Odisha go into the break, they will have Arshdeep to thank. Diego Mauricio also found the back of the net off a beautiful Cole Alexander pass but he was correctly deemed offside.

Jerry Lalrinzuala Booked

41' | Jerry goes into the referee's books for bringing down Diego Mauricio. There was nothing much in the challenge really, it was simply a clatter, a bit of acting helped Odisha there.

Enes Sipovic Booked

25' | Enes Sipovic is booked for blocking Jerry. The Chennaiyin FC bench and coach Csaba Laszlo are not happy with the decision and nor is Sipovic. Now the defender will have to be very careful for the rest of the evening.

Chhangte Miss

14' | A misplaced pass from Tratt and it falls for Memo, who passes to Chhangte on the right. Chhangte does a little right and left and goes for goal but it is just off the mark. That wasn't far at all.

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Chennaiyin FC vs Odisha FC: Chennaiyin, Odisha Play Out 0-0 Draw

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Chennaiyin FC vs Odisha FC Latest Updates: Former champions Chennaiyin FC play out a 0-0 draw against bottom-placed Odisha FC in their Indian Super League match on Sunday. Chennaiyin FC had 12 shots but just two on target while Odisha took three shots but all of them were on target. Another massive miss from Rahim Ali when he was let through on goal off a mistake from Tratt. Arshdeep denies Jakub Sylvestr right before half time. Diego Mauricio found the back of the net in the 42nd minute off a delightful Cole Alexander pass but he was deemed offside. Chennaiyin FC have been the dominant team so far with quite a few chances falling their way. Rahim Ali had a brilliant chance to put Chennaiyin FC up ahead in the second minute but couldn't make a solid decision and Arshdeep was able to collect the ball. Anirudh Thapa is making his 77th appearance for the Super Machans today and with that, he overtakes Jeje Lalpekhlua as Chennaiyin FC's highest appearance-maker in all competitions. Follow all the updates of Chennaiyin FC vs Odisha FC in News18 Sports' live blog.

Things are not looking pretty for Chennaiyin with just one win in their last eight games. They are at the eighth spot with 10 points from nine games with two wins, four draws and three draws. To make matters worse for the Super Machans, captain Rafael Crivellaro has been ruled out for the season due to an ankle injury. Head coach Csaba Laszlo would be desperate to return to winning ways and he would be hoping to do that against Odisha FC who had their own winless rut broken recently.


Chennaiyin are going into the match after their worst display of the season, a 1-4 defeat at the hands of Hyderabad FC on Tuesday.

"I think the last game's performance was bad. We made a lot of mistakes. After this game, everybody in my team has to go and think about it. We have to analyze the mistakes and we have to go back to where we were before," said Laszlo.

Chennaiyin's foreign players have dished out underwhelming performances so far. They have just three goals between them, the lowest by any foreign contingent. Laszlo will hope for more from them against Odisha.

Odisha head coach Stuart Baxter's team, meanwhile, will be hoping to pick up from the 4-2 win over Kerala in their last match on Thursday.

They may still be rooted to the bottom of the table, but a win over Chennaiyin will take them to within two points of their opponents. They also seem to have found an unlikely creative force in Jerry Mawihmingthanga, who now leads the ISL charts for assists along with Hugo Boumous.

"It's important to the degree that we needed to get those three points to give the players the belief and the confidence to continue the roll around," said Baxter.

"The players did a fantastic job in retaining their confidence and their belief despite the results being against us sometimes quite unluckily. But, we do need that to gain a little bit of momentum and now hopefully, we can kick on."
