ISL 2022-23: In the sixth matchweek of the 2022–23 season of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL), there were a number of matches that produced exciting and thrilling results, which prompted substantial changes in the rankings. The results of all five games were positive, as three Hero ISL teams were victorious when playing outside of their home venues.
Jamshedpur FC was defeated by Hyderabad FC in a hard-fought match that took place at the JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur. With this victory, Hyderabad FC was able to keep its perfect start to the season.
The reigning winners of the Hero ISL now have a four-point advantage over the rest of the competition. Both ATK Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City FC, two tough adversaries, were able to close the gap between themselves and the team at the top of the standings with a victory.
East Bengal gave Bengaluru FC their third consecutive loss, and Kerala Blasters FC defeated FC Goa with authority, stopping a 10-game losing skid against the Gaurs. Both of these results came from the south. As yet another matchweek draws to a close, the following are the most important things that were learned during matchweek 6: Another victory for Hyderabad FC, during which they did not allow an opponent to score.
As they cruised to an easy victory in the league round of the Hero ISL 2021–22, Hyderabad FC led all clubs with 43 goals scored and easily took home the title of league champion. However, their defence has been the one that has made the most significant difference for them this season. Their backline laid the foundation for yet another big victory, which helped HFC further solidify their place at the top of the table and maintain their perfect record for the season.
ISL 2022-23: HFC Have Now Tied the Records Held by FC GOA
HFC have now tied the records held by FC Goa (2018-19) and Mumbai City FC for most clean sheets in a single season with their fifth consecutive clean sheet in just six games.
This record was set in the Hero Indian Super League (2014). In their first six games, the team coached by Manuel Marquez has only conceded three goals, which is the fewest of any team. Because of all three of their goals, they were able to secure a draw in the first match they played against Mumbai City FC.
Liston had finally found his stride. In spite of the fact that Liston Colaco was the highest scorer for the Indians the year before, he has been held pointless through the first four games of this season for some inexplicable reason. Colaco, who often plays outside on the left flank, has been given a new position by ATK Mohun Bagan head coach Juan Ferrando this season. Dimitri Petratos, who is the team’s striker, has been given the responsibility of leading the attack.
Colaco broke his goalless run against NorthEast United FC by grabbing his opportunity and completing a great finish. The Goan had been guilty of missing multiple chances in ATKMB’s first four games, but he broke the streak by scoring against NorthEast United FC.
East Bengal FC Prevailed Once Again on the Road
The Spaniard said that everyone is aware of the performance capacity that Liston possesses. He is getting close to the point at which people would regard him as normal. He needs to pay more attention to a few details. Having said that, it’s only a surgery, so I’m not too worried about it. Liston is going to have to work hard not only for the sake of the squad but also for himself. If he makes those modifications, then everything will be absolutely right.
East Bengal FC prevailed once again on the road and took home the victory. Even though Stephen Constantine’s squad has only won two of their past six games, East Bengal has shown that they are capable of scoring points when they are playing away from their stadium. In fact, both of their victories this campaign, which came against Bengaluru FC and NorthEast United FC, took place away from their normal stadium.
Not only did the away team have a strong defensive performance against Bengaluru FC, as evidenced by the fact that they kept a clean sheet for the first time this season, but they also consistently applied pressure to the home team. In the end, Constantine’s team overcame the disadvantage of playing at home and emerged victorious as an underdog. “I believe nobody in India expected us to come here and beat Bengaluru FC,” Constantine said, referring to the club that they play for.
