Half Time : The referee ends the first half seconds after Chopra tries a tame effort on goal. It has been a topsy-turvy half so far with neither teams really dominating the game. Kerala Blasters FC got off to the best possible start as Cedric Hengbart fired home in the second minute itself. The home side then looked to immediately get back in the game as they pushed for the equaliser. However, Dramane Traore has been having a dreadful time in front of the goal as he failed to take his chances. However, Tato has been looking lively for the Stallions and they will be banking on him to find a way back into the game. Let's find out if the home side can get the equaliser or if Kerala Blasters FC go home with all three points.
