Highlights: Odisha 1-1 ATK Mohun Bagan (Bengali)
Mariners drop crucial points
FT: Odisha 1-1 ATK Mohun Bagan
The two teams have played out another draw this season
ATK Mohun Bagan could only manage a 1-1 draw against Odisha in Thursday's Indian Super League (ISL) tie at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco, Goa.
Redeem Tlang's (5') opener cancelled by Joni Kauko (8' pen) converting from the spot keeps the Mariners third with 31 points from 17 games and Odisha in seventh place with 23 points after 19 matches.
The Kolkatan giants, who are now four points off leaders Hyderabad, even though with a game in hand, finished the tie with 10 men after Roy Krishna was sent off in injury time.
90+3' KRISHNA IS SENT OFF!
Roy Krishna has picked a second booking since coming off the bench for a foul on Nandha on this occasion. Bagan are now down to 10 men for a few more minutes as there has been some time consumed when Sebastian was down injured.
LATE DRAMA IN STORE
Five minutes injury time
That could have spelt more trouble than picking just a point but Krasniqi's shot has come off the woodwork after Aridai slipped inside through the left channel to cut back an excellent pass to create that move.
And a minute later, Bagan could have scored the potential winner but Kamaljit has come in the way of Manvir's attempt off Kiyan cross from the right after Krishna created the move from the middle.

Injuries have slowed down the game
The inclusion of Roy Krishna has definitely kept something going on for Bagan, along with Kiyan, but injuries to players like Liston has in a way taken away a lot of creativity.
Odisha have looked far less lethal since Javi has been taken off injured but can still pack a punch.

HT: Odisha 1-1 ATK Mohun Bagan
A lot has transpired in the opening 45 minutes or so of this fixture with three penalties, another not given, Bagan cancelling Odisha's early opener within minutes.
More to look out for in the second half.
40' Bad news for Odisha with a forced change
It's Javi Hernandez, who looks to have picked an injury, being replaced by Daniel Lalhlimpuia.
Bagan lucky not to concede another penalty
If Boumous was flagged off-side en route towards goal in the opening minutes of the game, Aridai has been clipped off the ball from his feet after receiving a long lob from Javi.
The corner taken short is whipped inside the area by Javi but it seems as though the referee has NOT spotted Tiri's arms wrapped all around Hector Rodas before Jerry eventually fired it over.
24' Amrinder saves Javi's penalty
Aditya pointed to the spot for the second time in the tie, this time at the opposite end as he deemed Tiri to bring down Aridai just about inside the area. There are protests from the Bagan players and the bench but it stayed a penalty.
Amrinder dives low to his left to keep out Javi Hernandez' shot from 12 yards out and pounced on the ball to prevent any damage from the rebound.
8' KAUKO EQUALISES FROM THE SPOT
Sahil Panwar has been deemed guilty of barging into the back of Hugo Boumous as both the players had the eyes on a long lob in the area.
Aditya has pointed to the spot and Joni Kauko has stepped up to convert the penalty.
5' TLANG SCORES FOR ODISHA
Javi has done well to trickle the ball in attack from the middle before releasing Jerry on the right. The winger's cross has evaded all the two or three white shirts before Tlang was first to the ball and it's Odisha taking the early lead.

Odisha vs ATK Mohun Bagan
The last time these two sides met, it was a goalless draw. The result, whatever it is, doesn't do much for Odisha other than the points they accumulate this season in their last game. However, for Juan Ferrando's side, a draw or a loss will further take the battle of topping the lot out of their own hands.
