<p>Following the loss, Odisha manager, Stuart Baxter, rued injuries and suspension that has made the ongoing ISL campaign worse for them, as she said, "We made a few mistakes in the first half. We played well in the second and in the last 10 minutes, it was all about throwing the kitchen sink at it. We had too many games in a short period. (Diego) Mauricio had a tight calf, and (Jacob) Tratt was suspended. Jerry (Mawihmingthanga) wasn't fully fit as well."</p>

<p>Meanwhile, ATK head coach, Antonio Lopez Habas, was contained with the result, as he reckoned, "I think a draw is a good result for us. Today, we didn't perform to our best ability and I'm not entirely happy with my team. I think Chennai was the better team. They had more chances to score than us. I can't expect my players to always be at their best because this is a long league. But, hopefully, they do better in the next match. If you can't win, it's always important to get a point. So, I'm happy about that aspect. I'm glad that we've moved to the top of the 2020-21 ISL standings. Hope the fans are happy."</p>

<p>Meanwhile, Jamshedpur manager, Owen Coyle did admit that Goa was the far better team. "Got to give credit to Goa. Keeper was outstanding for them and we created more chances. Would be worried if we weren't creating chances. Not happy with our defensive actions. Lot of players are playing patched up with injuries. Edu had six fouls after his yellow, but Lima was sent off after just one foul. That's frustrating. We are still two points off playoffs. We are there and we will rally them up," he declared.</p>

<p>While Chennaiyin came up with another attack in the sixth minute, it was a couple of minutes later when Goa scored the equaliser through Jorge Ortíz, following an assist from Romario Jesuraj, as the former shot it to the top-right corner from the centre through his right foot. Meanwhile, it was followed by 11 more attacks, which saw three shot on targets being saved, as the teams went into the half-time break with the deadlock in place.</p>
