The Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 season was marked by several memorable matches where teams secured resounding victories, showcasing their peak performance levels and overwhelming their opponents' defensive strategies.

In a league known for its competitive nature, these significant margins of victory were noteworthy, highlighting moments when teams perfectly executed their game plans and capitalised on their strengths. Such dominant displays not only demonstrated the attacking strength of the winning sides but also underlined the unpredictable nature of the league where there was plenty of drama right up till the very end.

Rarely do we witness such comprehensive victories in the ISL. But when teams are firing on all cylinders and playing with confidence, they can be virtually unstoppable on the field.

With that said, let's delve into the biggest margin wins from the tenth edition of the ISL.

East Bengal FC vs NorthEast United FC (5-0)

East Bengal FC secured their largest-ever ISL victory with a commanding 5-0 triumph over NorthEast United FC at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata in December.

The Red and Gold Brigade delivered a dominant and entertaining performance on their home turf, showcasing their offensive prowess. Cleiton Silva and Nandhakumar Sekar each scored braces, while Borja Herrera opened the scoring. Carles Cuadrat’s men were in top form, executing numerous attacking moves that resulted in 10 shots on target out of 17 and maintaining 51% possession.

East Bengal FC broke the deadlock with Borja Herrera’s 14th-minute left-footed curler from outside the box. They carried a 2-0 lead into halftime thanks to Captain Silva's superbly headed goal. The hosts continued their intensity in the second half, with the Brazilian forward adding another goal, and super-sub Sekar netting two further goals, sealing a remarkable victory.

Hyderabad FC vs Jamshedpur FC (0-5)

Daniel Chima Chukwu's sensational hat-trick propelled Jamshedpur FC to a resounding 5-0 victory over Hyderabad FC at the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium in Hyderabad in December.

The Nigerian forward opened the scoring with an early header just 120 seconds into the match. Chukwu doubled the lead with a spectacular acrobatic bicycle kick, concluding the first half with a 2-0 advantage.

In the second half, Seiminlen Doungel extended Jamshedpur's lead within three minutes of coming off the bench, before Hyderabad FC's Jonathan Moya scored a consolation goal. Chukwu completed his hat-trick in the 79th minute with a precise finish inside the box, becoming only the second Jamshedpur FC player after Greg Stewart to achieve this milestone.

Chennaiyin FC vs Punjab FC (5-1)

Chennaiyin FC secured a roaring 5-1 victory against Punjab FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai in October.

Captain Ryan Edwards initiated the scoring in the 24th minute, followed by a superb display of link-up play that allowed Connor Shields to double their lead on home turf. Brazilian midfielder Rafael Crivellaro extended the advantage further with a penalty kick, securing a commanding 3-0 lead for the Marina Machans.

In the second half, Shields found the target again with a powerful left-footed strike. Vincy Barretto added to their tally with an 84th-minute goal, capping off a stellar performance against the Shers. However, Krishananda Singh managed to score a consolation goal for Punjab FC in the dying minutes of the game.

Bengaluru FC vs Mumbai City FC (0-4)

Abdenasser El Khayati, Akash Mishra, Jorge Pereyra Diaz, and Lallianzuala Chhangte all found the net as Mumbai City FC cruised to a victory over Bengaluru FC at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru in December.

The scoring began with a beautiful passage of play between Stewart and Khayati, resulting in the Islanders' opener as Khayati broke the deadlock in the 11th minute. Mishra then doubled the lead with a fierce right-footed strike from the edge of the box.

Diaz and Chhangte extended Mumbai City FC's lead further with successful penalty kicks, showcasing their precision and composure. Bengaluru FC goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu struggled to anticipate the forwards' movements, moving in the wrong direction and conceding on both occasions.

Punjab FC vs Jamshedpur FC (0-4)

Jeremy Manzorro’s sublime brace propelled Jamshedpur FC to edge four past Punjab FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi in February.

Chukwu broke the deadlock in the 11th minute with a powerful strike from close range to open the scoring. Despite creating several scoring opportunities through players like Luka Majcen, Madih Talal, and Wilmar Jordan Gil, Punjab FC failed to find the equaliser in the first half. TP Rehenesh played a crucial role by saving Majcen's penalty, maintaining Jamshedpur FC's lead.

Shortly after the hour mark, Mohammed Sanan K doubled Jamshedpur's lead, capitalising on a rebound from Manzorro's shot. The match took a decisive turn when Khalid Jamil's side scored two goals in quick succession through the impressive efforts of their French midfielder Manzorro, who scored spectacular back-to-back free-kicks at the death.

FC Goa vs Hyderabad FC (4-0)

Noah Sadaoui’s 14th-minute hattrick in the second half guided FC Goa to a comfortable victory over Hyderabad FC by a 4-0 scoreline at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Goa in April.

The Gaurs generated flawless attacking moves in the opening half, but a resilient Hyderabad FC defense line prevented them from breaking the deadlock. Sadaoui opened the scoresheet just after coming off the bench in the second half with his fabulous strike from Mohammad Yasir’s pin-point cross.

The Moroccan winger doubled the lead in the 54th minute and completed his hat-trick five minutes later with a simple tap-in. Spanish forward Carlos Martinez scored the other goal, converting Brandon Fernandes’ defence-splitting through ball.

Bengaluru FC vs Mohun Bagan SG (0-4)
