Tomorrow we head to Chennai who host Delhi. Join us than. Bye for now. Good night.

There goes the full time whistle. So Atlético de Kolkata hold on to that 53rd minute goal to win their first match of the season.

Blasters will be wondering how they didn’t score in that one. Did most of the running but could find the net. That’s two 1-0 defeats with no goals scored. ATK not at their best but they’ll take it. Their campaign is up and running.

56′ This crowd has gone has flat you wouldn’t believe this is Kochi if you just turned up.

55′ The cameras were focusing on the Mexican wave and that one came totally out of the blue.


Javier Lara finally gives this match a goal! ATK lead! The Spaniard gets the ball in the middle and goes for goal with a long range shot. He gets lucky as the ball takes a deflection off Jhingan and catches the keeper by surprise. Graham Stack has no chance to adjust his feet and can only watch the ball settle into the back of the net.

46′ Welcome back !

It has been a rather silent half of football at Kochi with neither sides able to break the deadlock. The game started off with the visitors looking threatening but nothing really materialised. They were dealt with an early blow when their talismanic striker was forced out due to an injury. Soon, KBFC started finding their rhythm and conjured some really good chances. However, just like their opponents, they too could not find the end product. Both sides have created the chances for sure but they just can’t seem to put the ball into the back of the net. Hopefully, the second half gives us something to cheer for. Stay tuned for the action from the other side of this interval.

45+2′ There goes the whistle for the break.

45+1′ The fourth official’s board reads two.

38′ Very colourful scenes in the stands. Now the clapping begins as the crowd try to get the players to lift the pace.

37′ Sustained spell of pressure from Blasters. But still no goals.

34′ Borja tries a cheeky one from distance with stack of his line and tell you that had Stack worried because it was dipping. But just over.

33′ German turns inside and picks out Rafi who doesn’t bother passing and shoots. Just wide.

31′ A straightforward pass is given to Sameehg Doutie but he fails to control the ball. With the possession gifted to Kerala Blasters through a throw-in, Antonio German goes all the way and finds room to take a long range shot. It was struck with power but went just inches past the top right corner.

30′ Sachin Tendulkar in the stands sporting yellow of course.

29′ Successive corners for ATK. Both close but no goal in the end.

27′ Both sides create some wonderful chances for themselves. ATK first tested the keeper through Doutie and Javier Lara. Right after that Duckens Nazon went past his man on the left flank before cutting the ball into the path of Antonio German. The striker could not find his feet in time and could only direct his shot off the target.

25′ Iain Hume is a man in the wars at the moment.

23′ Blasters cheaply gave the ball away in the final third. Cross comes in and Jhingan and Stack get in a mix up. But, the Englishman eventually clears.

8′ Foul on Hume. Free-kick in a interesting position.

7′ Postiga has gone down and stayed down. Cross your fingers ATK fans

6′ First Iain Hume gets the ball on the right flank and sends a good cross into the box for Postiga. The Portuguese goes for the shot but miscues it way off target. On the other end, Nazon shows some individual brilliance as he controls the ball and takes a volley on the turn all in one move. Unfortunately, he too fails to find the target.
