48′ ATK are looking to start the second half with more authority as they are pouring men forward in search of the opening goal of the game.
46′ PLAY RESUMES at the Salt Lake Stadium as the rain keeps on pouring.
HALFTIME: The wet conditions have not helped both set of players to play their usual way but they had a few chances in the first half. ATK create more openings than their opponents as they lacked the final touch to put it past Subrata Paul. Whereas Farukh Chaudhary’s header which struck the crossbar was the only clear chance Jamshedpur had. Sergio Castel who showed a lot of promise in earlier games has failed to get going as he had a great opportunity to score from a Mobashir Rahman cross which he failed to judge. It will be a fascinating second half for sure. Stay tuned as we bring you all the live updates from the game.
45+ 3′ Castel is definitely not happy with Anas’s challenge as he complains the referee and its halftime at the Salt Lake Stadium.
45′ Three minutes have been added on and by the looks of it Iriondo will be a happy man going into the break but his only concern will be Piti’s absence. Whereas Habas will hope that his forwards to be more clinical in front of goal.
41′ Farukh gets on the referee’s book for a reckless foul on Krishna as Jayesh Rane ventures forward and unleashes a shot from distance which curved away from the target.
40′ Excellent play for the hosts as Williams closes down Robin Gurung recovers possession and lays it off to Krishna who releases Javier Hernandez free on goal. However Monroy recovers on time to make a great block. The ATK players are asking for a penalty but the referee is not convinced.
37′ Piti looks to be in some pain as he goes to ground holding his hamstring muscle. As we see Noe Acosta getting ready on the sidelines. Thats that for the experienced midfielder for Jamshedpur as Acosta replaces Piti.
33′ A clash of heads between McHugh and Castel and the visitors get a freekick. Piti takes it and it is well cleared by Agus.
30′ Pritam Kotal becomes the second player to be booked on the night as he paid the price for pulling Castel’s shirt.
29′ CHANCE! Jamshedpur suddenly breaks froward as Mobashir launches a great cross as it was served on a plate for Castel to slot it past Arindam but the Spaniard fails to judge the ball as the chance goes begging.
26′ Soosairaj again combines well with Williams as they play a good one two releasing Soosairaj forward on the left flank but as he tries to drill in a cross he slipped.
24′ Soosairaj has been the star of the match so far. From dropping his shoulders and taking down defenders and doing some fancy skills to launching balls forward to linkup with Williams and Krishna.
21′ ATK are slowly pushing ahead with Soosairaj launching a long ball forward and Krishna reaches it and squares it but Keegan was there to clear it before it could reach any of the ATK players.
18′ Both sides till now have had a one chance and other than that it has been give and take of possession. ATK are looking to play long ball to release their forwards ahead.
13′ Both sides are looking to buildup slowly and unlock the opposition defence and with wet conditions the ball is skidding on the surface which isnt helping the defenders especially.
10′ The home side are gradually getting into the groove as players like Krishna and Williams are connecting well with their wingbacks and creating all sorts of trouble for the Jamshedpur defence.
8′ CHANCE! It was a moment of confusion between Memo and Subrata Paul as David Williams closed down, as it came to nothing. On the other hand Piti’s excellent cross found Farukh in the penalty area as he could not get his connection strong enough.
6′ The rain is pouring down and it is not helping the cause of the players.
3′ We have had a scrappy start with both teams failing to hold on to the ball. Meanwhile Keegan gets onto the book of the referee for his reckless challenge on Prabir Das

Antonio Lopez Habas feels ATK needs to improve in set-pieces
Antonio Habas stated that his side must improve their set-piece quality in order to hurt teams from free-kicks and corners. He explained, “We have to improve our set-pieces and this is our idea to do. It’s very important in set-pieces, what the players choose to do. The movement is important and the decision-making, the free-kick quality are all important. We are working on improving that aspect of our game.”
Antonio Iriondo feels ATK have a lot of quality in their team
The Spaniard knows how dangerous a side ATK are and made himself clear on respecting them tomorrow. He exclaimed, “We know we’re playing against a great team. It’s a very serious team and when I say serious, it’s like they know the way they want to win. They have a lot of quality in their team. I know their coach and it’s a team which gets into crazy matches.”
“They also have some great players which add to their quality. But. we’re trying to shift off fear in our game and I try to explain that to my players. I try to make sure my players aren’t fearful and express themselves during games”, he added.
