ATK, Chennaiyin dominate ISL Team of the Season

Here is our team of the 2019-20 ISL season, picked with the intention of having a reasonable ability to actually play well together on the pitch if the hypothetical scenario ever came through. Of course, there have been minor alterations and some imagination added to the mix, but we are reasonably confident that the team makes rational sense playing in this 4-2-3-1 formation. And yes, as per ISL rules, there are only five foreigners in the team.

Goalkeeper: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu [Bengaluru FC]

ISL numbers: Goa tap out at 51, BFC concede after 330

A record 16 goals were scored in this season's ISL playoffs, and when the dust cleared, ATK and Chennaiyin FC were the two teams left standing. ESPN brings you some of the key numbers that ISL 2019-20 threw at us. 

1

ATK are the first team in ISL history to have overturned a two-goal deficit in the course of the semi-finals and qualify for the final. ATK had conceded a 1-0 defeat to Bengaluru in the first leg away, and were set back by an early Ashique Kuruniyan goal; that meant ATK needed...

Chennaiyin's miracle men do just enough to spoil Goa's party

Chennaiyin FC are in the final of the 2019-20 ISL season after beating league-topping, shield-winning FC Goa.

Just.

The tie ended 6-5 on aggregate and even that absurd scoreline only tells half the tale. Chennaiyin won the first leg 4-1, and lost the second 2-4 in an incredible match that refused to peter out as such high-pressure contests often do.

Goa's nearly-comeback took place in two phases - the opening twenty and the closing ten. In the minutes in between, though, Chennaiyin did just about...

Goals from Lucian Goian, Anirudh Thapa, Eli Sabiá and Lallianzuala Chhangte helped Chennaiyin FC crush FC Goa 4-1 in the first leg of the ISL semi-final at home on Saturday.

Goa, who were without their top assist maker Hugo Boumous as well as midfielder Brandon Fernandes, made a sedate start as Chennai dominated the first half, hitting the bar once and forcing goalkeeper Mohammad Nawaz into numerous saves.

Goian finally broke the deadlock in the 54th minute with a towering header off a free-kick...

The Owen Coyle revolution is televised, straight outta Chennai

And so it continues, the remarkable Owen Coyle revolution. They had kicked the backdoor in to make it to the semifinal, unexpected, unaccounted for, bucking the odds. When he took over, they had had a "1-2% chance" of qualifying, he had said. Yet here they were, and they do not seem to be done yet.

Goa, table-toppers, the best team in the land, swept into town with the world at their feet, but they will be leaving it with the earth crumbling beneath them. They had come, they had seen, they had been...
