BAMBOLIM: Odisha and Chennaiyin were unable to convert their chances and played out a goalless draw at the GMC Stadium on Sunday. The match was a cagey affair but both teams had clear chances on the goal which were undone by wayward shooting.

That Odisha had only three shots on target while Chennaiyin managed just two (of the twelve shots they took) exemplified how much both sides cancelled out each other. Chennaiyin, the better side in terms of possession, had a couple of chances to get a winner but their forwards were unable to net them.

The first half got increasingly aggressive with both teams committing a number of fouls. Chennaiyin earned two yellow cards for their efforts, Enes Sipovic and Jerry Lalrinzuala going into the referee's book.

The second half started with Chhangte getting in behind the Odisha defence yet again and finding the side netting for the second time. In the 71st minute, Ali wasted another great chance. A mistake by Steven Taylor left the youngster with only Arshdeep to beat again. This time he managed to do that but struck his shot against the post. IANS
