ISL Week 3: Bengaluru tastes defeat, champion ATK winless

Emiliano Alfaro Pune City vs Mumbai City
The third game-week of the ISL kicked off with the Maharashtra derby between Pune City and Mumbai City. The home side fell a goal behind early in the match thanks to a strike from outside the box from Balwant Singh.
Pune's splurge in snapping up Uruguayan sharp shooter Emiliano Alfaro paid dividends as his brace - a 74th minute penalty and a 93rd minute winner - clinched the bragging rights and the all important three points.

Ferran Corominas FC Goa Bengaluru FC
After a near flawless start to its maiden ISL campaign, Bengaluru was rocked in the first 45 minutes of its away tie against Goa. Spanish forward Ferran Corominas scored a brace and Manuel Lanzarote put away a penalty with BFC's goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu sent off for an altercation leading up to the spot kick.
After going a man down and trailing 3-1, Albert Roca's side restored parity in the second period through Miku's second and Erik Paartalu's strike.
However, it was all in vain after Corominas completed his hat-trick and helped Goa come out on top in a seven goal thriller.

ISL Jamshedpur ATK
Champion ATK's disastrous title defence continued as it was held to a goalless draw by newcomer Jamshedpur. Teddy Sheringham's side lies bottom of the table after the result with two points from the first three games, and has scored only once.
Absence of marquee signing Robbie Keane has contributed to the struggle to find the back of the net, and the Irish striker will be key to ATK's fortunes.
Interestingly enough, the home side, led by Steve Coppell, has not scored in its first three drawn affairs and is a point ahead of ATK.

Delhi Dynamos NorthEast United ISL
Delhi's first home game at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium ended in a disappointing defeat to the Highlanders. Brazilian duo Marcinho and Danilo Cezario scored for NEUFC within the first 22 minutes as it bounced back from the 3-0 defeat at Chennaiyin FC. Photo: ISL/SPORTZPICS

Pune City FC Chennaiyin FC
John Gregory made it top priority to nullify the threat of attacking duo Emiliano Alfaro and Marcelinho and his defence did just that! Going into the fixture, Pune had never got the better off Chennaiyin and that trend continued with away team skipper Henrique Sereno heading in the winner in the 81st minute. With the second win on the trot, CFC climbed to second in the standings with six points. It is behind Bengaluru only on goal difference. Photo: ISL/SPORTZPICS

Dimitar Berbatov Sandesh Jhingan Kerala Blasters Mumbai City FC
While Rene Mulensteen coached Blasters ended its drought in front of goal, its search for a first win continued after being begged back by Balwant Singh's second goal of the week.
Dutch teenager Mark Sifneos opened the scoring for Kerala in front of a packed Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi. Kerala will have to make do without winger CK Vineeth for the next game, after he received a second yellow card as the game ended with a flurry of rush tackles.
