NorthEast United recorded their first home win while Delhi Dynamos also ended their losing streak. Bengaluru FC were the only other team to record a win in this round.
In this article, we look at five forwards whose performances stood out among the rest!
Izu Azuka ended Jamshedpur’s goal drought at home scoring a brace against Mumbai City FC. It was the first time that Jamshedpur FC had scored twice in a match. The Nigerian has scored 3 out of the 4 goals that Jamshedpur FC have scored.
Azuka appeared sharp from the start of the match and took advantage of a goalmouth scramble to level the score for the home team. Azuka then clinically converted from close range to give Jamshedpur the lead. With Jamshedpur FC struggling for goals Azuka’s form is crucial if they are to make the semifinals of ISL 2017/18.
