Chennaiyin’s ‘miss’ fortune continues as debauchery haunts them again in goalless draw against Bengaluru


It was another frustrating night for Csaba Laszlo as his team continued to miss opportunities in front of goal…

Csaba Laszlo called for “Vaccine for goals” after another frustrating draw by Chennaiyin, this time against Bengaluru in an Indian Super League (ISL) clash on Friday.

The result against Bengaluru was Chennaiyin’s eighth draw this season, six of which are scoreless draws. The Marina Machans have only managed to find the back of the net 11 times this season, the fewest goals a team has scored. It is also the team with the most chances created this season, which explains the disappointment of the Romanian-Hungarian coach.

New signing Manuel Lanzarote made his debut for Chennaiyin and the veteran midfielder lived up to expectations by creating plenty of chances. Operating just behind lone striker Esmael Goncalves (Isma), the Spaniard was a livewire on the pitch and had a huge impact on Chennaiyin’s forays. They made a total of 12 shots on goal compared to Bengaluru’s five and six shots on target. Still, they failed to change the score and had to settle for another tie.

The addition of Lanzarote has definitely made Chennaiyin’s squad stronger, but her presence in the squad will be meaningless if she can’t finish the chances created by the Spain midfielder.

Chennaiyin missed the presence of a true number nine in its squad from the start of the season. Laszlo experimented with every possible combination with his two foreign strikers Isma and Jakub Sylvestr, but unfortunately neither of them are natural poachers.

Isma could very well have ended up scoring at least two goals if he was a little more clinical in front of goal but unfortunately the Guinea-Bissau international, who has only scored one open goal this season, failed to take a chance. .

India international Lallianzuala Chhangte is another player who has struggled with chances. Mizo’s winger once again came close to breaking the deadlock on several occasions, but failed to do so.

On a night when the Chennaiyin forwards were extremely busy, their backline looked a bit stronger than usual. Bengaluru was pragmatic in his approach and most often sought to play at the counter. They had their attacking moments towards the end, but there was no doubt that was Chennaiyin’s game to take.

Blues head coach Naushad Moosa even admitted after the game that they were lucky enough to leave the game with a point. He said, “To tell you the truth, we were lucky. They had a lot of chances to score but missed. ”

It hasn’t been the year of Chennaiyin and with another draw on Friday they are slowly moving away from the play-off spot. Chennaiyin only have four matches in the league stage and unless they find an immediate solution to their goal issues, it is out of the question to be in the top four.
