The Kerala Blasters lost three games in a row to end the 2022–23 Indian Super League season. Kerala Blaster lost for the third time in a row, falling to ninth place in the standings with 10 goals allowed in the Indian Super League. Mumbai City, on the other hand, keeps winning without a loss.
They had more possession of the ball and more chances, but Mumbai City goalkeeper Phurba Lachenpa, who made some outstanding saves, ultimately stopped them. Jorge Pereyra returned to torment the Blasters by scoring the game’s second goal and taking advantage of a defensive blunder.
The Performing Side:
Jeakson Singh: The Indian midfielder Jeakson appeared quite comfortable with the ball and helped Kerala Blasters hold onto it while advancing the play. He did, however, miss an uncontested header in front of the net.
Adrian Luna: Luna appeared extremely dangerous while attempting three shots and only connecting with the wall once. His free-kick put the keeper to the test but was ultimately stopped.
The Losing Side:
Marko Leskovic: Leskovic, 31, attempted a weak clearing and allowed Jorge Pereyra to get in behind, which immediately contributed to the second goal. He often did a terrible job of neutralizing the opposition.
Victor Mongil: The center-back pairing appeared very unstable and lost a lot of room in the channel to the opposition’s attackers.
The Kerala Blasters committed defensive mistakes and had a weak back, which ultimately lost them two goals. They provided much room and were also torn apart. Jeakson helped Kerala Blasters keep possession by having a strong presence both on and off the ball. He made crucial recoveries and completed the majority of the game’s passes around the 46th minute. Adrian Luna’s direct runs and shoots greatly improved the offense.
Despite being decent and posing a threat to the opponent’s backline, Sahal Samad and Dimitrios Diamantakos ultimately failed to get past Lachenpa. Diamantakos was able to provide his teammates with numerous chances.
