Man of the match Farukh Choudhary forced an own goal off Rana Gharami in the 17th minute, but Aridane Santana produced a sublime volley to equalised after Bikash Jairu was sent off for a sliding tackle on ever-impressive Jerry Mawhmingthanga. Despite having a one-man advantage, Odisha FC failed to kill off the match and allowed Jamshedpur to dictate the proceedings at JRD Tata Sports Complex. Tireless Sergio Castel then scored the winner five minutes from the regulation time. That's all for tonight. Tomorrow, pre-season favourites FC Goa host former champions Chennaiyin FC at Fatorda.
