#2 Not slowing down the pace of the game after taking the lead

Usually, when a team is 2-0 up, the manager tells the squad to slow down the pace of the game to wear the time out. However, Akbar Nawas did the opposite as Chennai City FC looked to extend the lead.

The home side could have put the game to bed numerous times but fumbled in the finishing. The high tempo of the game made it easier for Chennai City FC to break on the counter as Charles and Edwin found pockets of space.

One ought to note that Chennai City FC has played all of their matches with a similar approach. We are yet to see them sit down deep, absorb the pressure, and clear the ball out for danger.

This modus operandi, although challenging, has even worked in their away games. If it weren't for the profligacy of Ameeruddin and Nestor, Chennai City FC could have won the match with a more handsome margin.
