The Juggernauts went down against FC Goa at Fatorda last night.
After starting the game strong against the Gaurs in the first half, Josep's men couldn't take all 3 points back home after FC Goa came all guns blazing in the second half.
The Gaurs broke their losing streak at home with Noa, Brison, and Alvaro shining bright in Goa last night. The Juggernauts kept more of the ball and created more chances in the first half. Osama's inch-perfect floater to Carlos attempted the spectacular went begging. A goal-line clearance from Anwar Ali saved the hosts from another attacking threat.
The woodwork denied Nandha's audacious attempt in the first 30 mins as Dheeraj completely missed the ball in an effort to keep the score level. Moments later Saul's point-blank header was denied by Ayush Chettri who kneed the ball into the upright.
The turning point in the game came when Nandha was shown a second yellow followed by a red card for his tackle on Princeton reducing the visitors down to 10 men. FC Goa broke the deadlock in the 74th minute through substitute Brison Fernandes.
4 minutes later Noah doubled Goa's lead as he smashed it in through a rebound from Vazquez's attempt on goal. As the game drew to an end, Alvaro put the game beyond the visitor's reach as he put one behind Amrinder courtesy of a Noah through ball.
Odisha FC face ATK Mohun Bagan at home on 15th December and now sit fourth on the table.
