What's the story?

Mark Sifneos' goal against Pune City FC was the 100th goal in this season of the Indian Super League (ISL). This is the fastest time in which 100 goals were scored in any season of the ISL, with the 100th coming in the 38th match of the season.

In case you didn't know

The heart of the matter

Sifneos' goal was his third of the season and the Blasters' seventh of ISL 2017. Out of the 100 goals, FC Goa have scored the most with 19 in 7 matches, Pune City FC have scored 18 in 9 matches and Bengaluru FC have put 17 in the back of the net in 8 matches. The anomaly of the season has to be Jamshedpur FC, who have scored only 2 goals in 7 matches.
