ISL 2019-20: Bengaluru FC 1:0 Kerala Blasters | 5 Hits and Flops as defending champions win Southern derby
- We take a look at the hits and flops from the thrilling encounter between the two southern giants.
#Flop - Bartholomew Ogbeche
Kerala Blasters have only scored three goals from the five matches this season. Out of those, two came from Bartholomew Ogbeche in the opening game against ATK. However, the striker has been relatively poor since then and has a large part in the team's poor display in attack.
Ogbeche was once again found wanting for the Blasters. He was kept at bay by the Bengaluru FC for a while by the defence which had Albert Serran and Juanan. Eelco Schattorie tweaked his plans and slotted in Messi Bouli as a partner for Ogbeche in attack. Even that didn't help the 35-year old register a shot on target against Gurpreet Singh Sandhu.
The striker was very often out of position and couldn't do much creative to overcome the defence. Ogbeche missed a golden opportunity in the 14th minute when he failed to connect with Bouli's low cross.
Ogbeche has been without a goal for the last 327 minutes in the league and he failed to break the deadlock to get his side out of trouble.
