The recently concluded Hero Indian Super League saw Antonio Lopez Habas’s ATK beat Chennaiyin FC in the final 3-1 at Fatorda Stadium , which was played behind closed doors. A final without fans made it an anti-climatic end to a season which was marked by umpteen numbers of brilliant moments with quite a fair share of controversies.
However, the 2019-20 season of ISL can safely be called the best one till date, with an array of changes which made the league very interesting.
The stiff competition between FC Goa and ATK for the top spot in the league, which would result in qualification to AFC Champion’s League, and Chennaiyin FC’s fairytale comeback under Owen Coyle are some of the most beautiful moments from this season which would be cherished by fans for months.
There were several interesting matches this season- some of them having a lot of goals while some had incredible comebacks. There were fights as well, which spiced up the league and made it more competitive. On this note, we list down the top 5 matches from this season which entertained viewers the most.
Let’s start it off:

Odisha FC vs Kerala Blasters was not of much significance for the Men in Yellow, but the match was simply memorable for the neutral fans. The bout had entertainment galore, with own goals, penalties and comebacks making the viewers sit at the edge of their seats.
Kerala suffered an early setback when Manuel Ownu opened the scoring for Odisha in the very first minute. But the lead didn’t last long as Narayan Das gave away an own goal to level the scoreline, much to the relief of the Manjapadda fans. The men in yellow were in for a treat when Messi Bouli put them ahead scoring in the 28th minute.
Just as KBFC thought they were in the driver’s seat, Onwu equalized by scoring in the 36th minute. The drama wasn’t over as Martin Perez Guedes sent the home fans into frenzy and calmly converted a spotkick just a minute before the break to give Odisha the cushion at the half-time.
In the second half, Onwu scored again in the 51st minute to complete a well-deserved hattrick as he made the score 4-2. The home fans all but assured of a thumping victory , were sent into a pin drop silence, when Kerala earned a penalty 8 minutes before the final whistle. Ogbeche made no mistake in sending the ball the right way as Blasters reduced their trail. In the 4th minute of stoppage time, when the match was about to end, Kerala got another penalty kick.
Ogbeche scored from the spot again and snatched a well-set victory from the clutches of Odisha. The match ended at 4-4, making it a great treat for the spectators and viewers back home.
