ISL 2019-20, ATK vs Mumbai City FC: Hits and Flops
#2 Flop: Rowllin Borges
Rowllin Borges did not have a good outing today for the Islanders. Placed just ahead of the Mumbai City defence in a bid to cut off the attacking moves of ATK, Borges struggled for the entirety of 90 minutes. He managed to keep the formidable attacking line-up at bay in the initial few minutes but that was that. Edu Garcia had it easy in the rest of the game and won almost every duel with Rowllin Borges at the centre of the park.
Borges committed lots of fouls in the latter part of the game on Edu Garcia. The experienced campaigner struggled to keep possession and was found out giving away balls cheaply at the centre of the park helping ATK throughout the game. Javier Hernandez also troubled Rowllin Borges which made matters worse for the Goan-born midfielder.
#1 Hit: Roy Krishna
Roy Krishna carried on his fantastic form into the Mumbai City game as well. Krishna and David Williams always looked dangerous. He kept Amrinder Singh busy by going for goals from distance. Krishna looked to play a slightly withdrawn role in the first-half, just behind Williams but came up as the main striker in the second half. He kept Sarthak Golui and Pratik Chaudhari occupied at all times, thus leaving his other striking compatriots unmarked.
It was the Fijian himself, who stood up for ATK seconds after they conceded in stoppage time. He received a peach of a pass from Edu Garcia, turned and slot it home between the legs of Amrinder Singh to salvage a point for the hosts in a game which looked like a lost affair just before the full-time whistle.
