Adios!
That is it from this fixture but action in the Hero ISL 2022-23 continues with a doubleheader on Saturday, the 19th of November. The first game will be played between Chennaiyin FC and Jamshedpur FC and will begin at 5.30 pm IST. That game will be followed by a clash between Hyderabad FC and Kerala Blasters FC at 7.30 pm IST. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Awards!
The Club Award goes to OFC for winning the game. The Hero of the Match Award goes to Pedro Martin for his match-winning display off the bench.
The comeback kings!
OFC complete the comeback yet again in the Hero ISL 2022-23 and emerge victorious tonight in Kolkata. Having begun the first half on the front foot, EBFC opened the scoring in the 23rd minute of the game via Thongkhosiem Haokip's finish in front of the goal from a Suhair Vadakkepeedika cross. 12 minutes later, EBFC made it 2-0 when Naorem Singh slotted it home from another Suhair Vadakkepeedika assist. With two goals to the good at the break, EBFC looked poised to put the game beyond OFC’s reach. However, OFC had other plans as Pedro Martin scored twice inside the first three minutes of the second half to level the scores. OFC looked a completely different side post the equalizer and as a result, took the lead for the first time in the game when Jerry Mawihmingthanga’s diving header found the back of the net. Nandhakumar Sekar then doubled the lead for OFC from a Saul Crespo assist. EBFC failed to recover from the setback and as a result, came second in tonight’s fixture. With this victory OFC move up to 3rd on the points table.
90'

90'
Added time!
The officials signal that 5 minutes have been added into the second half here. Can EBFC do the impossible here?

Cleared away!!
Pritam Singh whips in a delicious ball inside the box from the left side. It takes a deflection on the way which makes it awkward for the keeper, Amrinder Singh to deal with but he keeps his calm and clears it away.
84'
No danger!
OFC try to break into a counter-attack but could not push men higher in a short time. Pedro Martin lacked support in the front and eventually the possession is lost. EBFC trying their best here to find the next goal, to give them a glimmer of hope.
81'
What a turnaround!
EBFC are trying to push men forward now. They need two goal if they are to steal a point from this encounter. OFC have been solid since the start of the second half. They have been pressing well and it is certainly keeping EBFC at bay.
76'
GOAL!!
Nandhakumar Sekar makes it 4-2! And out of nowhere OFC have a 2-goal cushion now from being 2-nil down in the first half. The long diagonal ball lands at the feet of Nandhakumar Sekar in the left flank. He skips past his marker and slots it into the far corner to make it worse for EBFC.

OFC continue to lead!
With just over 15 minutes left in the game, EBFC are running out of options to find an equalizer. OFC will look to run down the clock and keep EBFC at bay.
73'
A forced change for OFC!
Diego Mauricio is down with cramps and needs some medical attention. He is taken off the field on a stretcher and will be replaced by Victor Rodriguez.

Poor delivery!
EBFC concede a corner as Saul Prieto's shot is blocked by the EBFC defence. Yendrembam Meitei takes the corner and sends it towards the back post but far from the reach of the rushing player.
65'
GOOAALLL!!!
Unbelievable scenes as OFC complete the comeback and the home crowd is silenced. Nandhakumar Sekar does well to hold the ball deep on the left flank and no EBFC player tries to pressurize him. Denechandra Meitei makes an overlapping run and receives the ball from Nandhakumar. Meitei crosses it towards the far post with his left foot and it is an inch-perfect cross. Jerry Mawihmingthanga is once again left unmarked and hammers it home to make it 3-2 to OFC.

61'
There for the taking
With about half an hour left, either side could claim all 3 points. OFC is the team that is pressing the issue at the moment and are creating good opportunities. This does leave the option of a quick counter-attack for EBFC. Will we see any further goals in this enthralling encounter?
57'
OFC in the ascendancy
After struggling in the first 45 minutes, the half-time changes have worked wonders for OFC so far. They have been able to press EBFC high up the field and bring the likes of Diego Mauricio and Pedro Martin into the thick of the action.
53'
Forced change!
EBFC make a substitution now. Charis Kyriakou, who got injured a few minutes ago is being stretchered off the field and it will be Alex Lima who comes on to replace him. Can EBFC get back in the lead?
53'

Strong tackle!
Thoiba Singh gets into the referee's book. Thoiba Singh and Charis Kyriakou both rise up for aerial ball but Thoiba does come in a bit strongly. He does win the header and comes through the back of Kyriakou who falls on the ground and seems to be in a lot of pain.

48'
GOOAALLL!!!
Pedro Martin scores yet again and out of nowhere, OFC are level! Poor marking from EBFC and with not even 5 minutes played in the second half, OFC have made it 2-2. A cross from the left flank comes in towards the far post and Diego Mauricio does well to win the header and get the ball in front of the goal. Pedro Martin is left completely unmarked and heads it home past Kamaljit Singh who does get a glove on it.

47'
GOOAALLL!
Instant impact from Pedro Martin. OFC make four changes at the break and just two minutes into the second half, they have managed to pull a goal back. Diego Mauricio receives the ball from midfield and slides it into the path of Pedro Martin who does well to shrug off his marker. Martin hammers it across the keeper and finds the left bottom corner to make it 2-1.

Resumption!
The two sides are back for the second half and it will be EBFC who get the ball rolling. They will attack from right to left of the screen and OFC have made four changes at the interval.
A thrilling first half!
An engrossing first half comes to a close, and EBFC lead 2-0 at the break. EBFC came out with a clear game plan and showed some positive signs straightaway. Having created a couple of chances in the first 20 minutes, EBFC went ahead in the 23rd minute of the game when Thongkhosiem Haokip finished a great counter-attack by slotting it home from a Suhair Vadakkepeedika assist. EBFC looked more threatening to double the lead, which they eventually did when Naorem Singh found the back of the net in the 35th minute from a Suhair Vadakkepeedika assist yet again. With two goals down, OFC did manage to create some chances but failed to convert them. The OFC manager needs to motivate his boys for the second half with some pep talk in the break. Will OFC inspire themselves to make a comeback in the game? We will find out after the break.
45'
Half time
There goes the referee's whistle and at the break, EBFC lead OFC 2-0!

The referee shows the first yellow card of the game to Ivan Gonzalez. He has been booked for dissent as he was not happy with the referee's decision on something.

Added time
The officials signal that there will be a minimum of 2 minutes to be added on to the first 45.
44'
Astute defending!
EBFC not allowing an inch to the OFC attackers. Raynier Fernandes picks up the ball in midfield and plays a good reverse ball to set Nandhakumar Sekar free on the left side but Ivan Gonzalez stays with him and puts it out for a throw-in. Can OFC pull a goal back before the interval?
39'
Should have scored!
Raynier Fernandes wastes a golden opportunity to pull one back for OFC. OFC finally manage to conjure up a good attack as Nandhakumar Sekar is set free on the right edge of the box. Kamaljit Singh tries to put pressure on him but Nandhakumar is able to twist and turn and cross the ball towards the far post with his left foot. Raynier rises highest and gets plenty of power behind the header but misses the mark from a few yards out.
35'
GOOAALLL!
EBFC have their second and boy, they have completely deserved it. Charis Kyriakou does extremely well to win the ball in the middle of the park and it is a brilliant flick off his head by Cleiton Silva to set Suhair Vadakkepeedika free on the left flank. Suhair bursts inside the box and slides it across the face of the goal. Naorem Singh makes a good run and slides in to slot it past the keeper. The OFC defense was left gaping there.
35'
Goal
Goal - East Bengal FC : Mahesh
33'
Frantic stuff!
Narender Gahlot makes a good run down the right flank. Gahlot crosses it in towards the far post and Raynier Fernandes just looks to head back towards the middle. The ball does fall to Diego Mauricio but he cannot bring it down cleanly and EBFC manage to clear it out for a corner. Nothing comes of it though.
30'
Danger averted!
Ankit Mukherjee does not deal with the throw cleanly and concedes a corner. Sahil Panwar takes the resulting corner and finds the unmarked Narender Gahlot near the far post. The OFC defender fails to keep his shot on target and it sails way over the crossbar.
26'
OFC in search of an equalizer!
It has been all EBFC in the first quarter of the game. OFC look unsettled and they need to show some resolve and pull one back before the break.
23'
GOOAALLL!
EBFC draw first blood. A great counter-attack results in the opener for EBFC. Suhair Vadakkepeedika is unmarked on the right flank and he is slotted a great through ball by Jordan O'Doherty. He is aware that Thongkhosiem Haokip is in front of the goal and puts it on a platter for him. Amrinder Singh is in no position to stop it and Haokip keeps his composure and rolls the ball in the back of the net. EBFC lead 1-0!
23'
Goal
Goal - East Bengal FC : Semboi
19'
One-sided affair
EBFC have been dominating the proceedings so far. But they are unable to find any inspiration in the final third. OFC will aim to remain a solid unit at the back and not concede a goal until the break here.
15'
Into the hands of the keeper
OFC are digging a hole for themselves here. They were very close to giving away a goal here. Cleiton Silva is allowed to rush towards the goal with the ball at his feet. Amrinder Singh comes off his line to put some pressure on Silva, although it wasn't needed as Carlos Delgado get there in time to calm things down a bit.
13'
Top play
All starts with Suhair Vadakkepeedika winning the ball in the middle of the park. Jordan O'Doherty later sets up Mahesh on the left flank with an excellent long ball. Mahesh beats his man and whips in a low cross in the danger are where three of his team-mates were present, although none could get at the end of it as Osama Malik gets a some leg on the way to kill the pace and direction off it.
9'
Offside
EBFC keeping the ball with themselves. They are not letting OFC get a glance on goal here. Thongkhosiem Haokip tries to make a run towards the ball but is a bit early as the linesman raises his flag.
6'
Good intent
First positive sign for OFC since the start here. Raynier Fernandes puts in a wonderful cross inside the box. Diego Mauricio makes an incredible movement inside the box but heads it wide of the target.
4'
Could've been better
Naorem Singh stands behind the dead ball but hits it straight to the man who is placed as a lone wall. The delivery was very poor.
2'
Early frustration!
Cleiton Silva is pushed from behind in his own half, although the referee lets the play go on. EBFC camp is not really happy about it.
1'
Let's Football
The wait is over! The referee blows the whistle and OFC get us underway. They will be attacking from right to left in the first half. They will be playing with a 4-3-3 formation, while EBFC will be operating in a 4-4-2. Who will break the deadlock?
Toss
Both the skippers meet in the middle of the field for the toss. The coin goes up and it lands in favour of OFC. Carlos Delgado informs that they will kick things off. EBFC will be attacking from left to right in this half.
National Anthem
We are inching closer to the kick off, as both the teams head out for the Indian national anthem.

Is another goal fest loading?
The Hero Indian Super League is known for its high-octane football and teams like East Bengal FC and Odisha FC have also played their active part in dishing out high-scoring humdingers. Scorelines like 6-4 and 6-5 have belonged to this fixture and there is every reason to expect something similar this evening. The games between these two teams have been quite close but in the last three outings, OFC have pocketed all the matches and hold the upper hand. Coming to the performance of these teams in the Hero ISL 2022-23, it has not been a fruitful start to their campaign with Odisha FC losing two games and East Bengal FC suffering four losses thus far. That said, EBFC edged out Bengaluru FC in their previous match and the morale in their camp will be sky-high. The last result handed East Bengal FC's backline some much-needed boost as it thwarted all the late attacks from BFC and earned its first clean sheet of the season. Odisha FC, on the other hand, had their 2-match winning streak broken at the hands of the defending champions Hyderabad FC and will be eager to bounce back. Josep Gombau, their head coach, has already emphasized the need to improve on the mistakes that OFC have become prone to committing and we can expect them to charge out with better planning and execution. They are lacking venom in the attacking third at the moment and it was one of the reasons for their defeat in the last game. The focus of OFC will be on fine-tuning all the critical areas as they take the field. A pulsating contest is on the cards.
Second Fixture Of Matchweek 7
East Bengal FC versus Odisha FC - Just the mention of this fixture, and we all start to smell plenty of goals. It's always a tasty battle between these two teams, and there is never a dull moment when they clash. So our Friday evening is sorted as EBFC and OFC, who are still trying to find their feet in the Hero ISL 2022-23, prepare to meet at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata. Make no other plans, you cannot afford to miss this contest.
