  • April 08, 2023 22:20

    Rahul KP goes on a solo run from the right flank and Bidya Sagar is running parallel to him, Rahul makes a cross that has been deflected by keeper Kiran’s gloves as Kerala missed the chance to down the shutter.

  • April 08, 2023 22:17

    Double change for Punjab. Ajay Chhetri and Ashis Pradhan comes in with the set of fresh legs and Brandon Vanlalremdika and Freddy Lallawmawma end their shifts.

  • April 08, 2023 22:15

    The pace of the game has dropped significantly. Kerala did one more chance as Sahal makes way for Bryce.

  • April 08, 2023 22:13

    Sahal Abdul Samad seemed to have injured himself. A small halt in the play.

  • April 08, 2023 22:12

    Subs for Kerala: ⬅️Bijoy & Danish |➡️ Leskovic & Jeakson

  • April 08, 2023 22:08

    What an attack by Punjab. They had at least four chances in the last sixty seconds to score an equaliser. Kerala needs to calm things down.

  • April 08, 2023 22:03
    74’ Krishna scores for Punjab

    GOALLLLLL! Super sub-Krishna! Juan Mera shows lovely skill to beat the defender from the right flank and crosses it to the left to Krishna to find the back of the net this time to cut the lead to half! Game on, says Punjab!

  • April 08, 2023 22:01

    Sahal deceives a couple of Punjab players in the midfield and gives a reverse pass to Rahul KP who went ahead with the ball and almost got Kerala the third goal but a foul on a Punjab player will cut short his burst of acceleration.

  • April 08, 2023 21:58

    Chance, miss! A ball from Luka and Krishna runs down the left flank to put pressure on the keeper but fails to find the back of the net.

  • April 08, 2023 21:54

    Subs for Punjab - OUT: 39 Mohammed Salah | IN: 50 Naocha Singh

  • April 08, 2023 21:52

    The Punjab team looks down and out as they seemed to be running out of ideas. All small attempts to be creative in the middle are failing as Kerala is playing very compact.

  • April 08, 2023 21:47

    Same old strategy from Kerala to dictate the pace after scoring a goal. Punjab looks to deteriorate as time goes on.

  • April 08, 2023 21:44
    54’ Nishu Kumar scores

    GOALLLLLLLL! Nishu Kumar finds the net to demolish the disoriented defence of Punjab to give Kerala Blasters a second goal in this game. Blasters doubles their lead.

  • April 08, 2023 21:42

    Luka fouled on Bijoy, a quick sorry from the Punjab captain as the play goes on.

  • April 08, 2023 21:41

    Captain Luka is on the run and gives a spot-on pass further, Krishna runs hard from the left flank but he has been taken down inside the box! A penalty? The referee says to play on but Brandon is protesting against the decision and gets the booking from the referee. Too much happening at the same time but Punjab misses the chance here.

  • April 08, 2023 21:37

    Lhungdim wins the challenge against Giannou Apostolos, a free kick for Punjab.

  • April 08, 2023 21:34

  • April 08, 2023 21:19
    Half Time

    Diamantakos converted the penalty and that has been the difference between the two teams in the first half.

  • April 08, 2023 21:18

    Kerala is playing it smart here as they are keeping the ball possession and dictating the pace of the game. Three added minutes are about to end.

  • April 08, 2023 21:16

    Sahal is in the run once again but Lhungdim defence his heart out this time to avoid any other casualties.

  • April 08, 2023 21:13

    Saurav has been taken down inside the box, an error from Punjab as they gift a penalty kick to Kerala!

  • April 08, 2023 21:09

    A good battle between Sahal and Lhungdim and it is the Punjab youngster who wins the battle here. Ball possession to Punjab.

  • April 08, 2023 21:06

    Another chance but Kerala fails to get the most out of it. Saurav gets the ball from Sahal and he beats the last line of defence from the right flank and crosses to Sahal, on the left but timely intervention by keeper Kiran will deny a gaol to Blasters. Big change, big miss for Blasters!

  • April 08, 2023 21:04

    A challenge by Vipin on Freddy will give a free kick to Punjab. Captain Luka takes the set piece and his curling ball went past everyone.

  • April 08, 2023 21:02

    Chance! A perfect ball was given by Sahal but Danish could not finish it as he misses the post.

  • April 08, 2023 20:59

    Suresh Meitei shows grit and persists in the pursuit of defence. Diamantakos fails to win one-on-one against him as Punjab stops the Blaster’s attack once again.

  • April 08, 2023 20:54

    A tough challenge by Bijoy on Punjab captain Luka as he has been thumped on the ground.

  • April 08, 2023 20:52

    Vipin, from deep, tries to beat the defence as he tries to find Ayush on the right flank, but Ayush was slow and he misses the ball as it goes out of play.

  • April 08, 2023 20:49

    Captain Dimitrios Diamantakos shows his speed to beat the final line of defence but a timely defence by Valpuia will deny any chances for Kerala. Blasters, however, win a corner, nothing out of it.

  • April 08, 2023 20:47

    First corner of the match, Kerala wins corner because of the pressure Sahal created from the left flank. A loose shot as Punjab takes the ball possession back.

  • April 08, 2023 20:45

    Sahal is on the run from the left flank as he went past the defenders with wonder skills but Punjab, who got enough time to consolidate in the defence kept the ball out of play.

  • April 08, 2023 20:43

    A lovely long ball for Valpuia but he misses making contact with the ball as Punjab fails to salvage a goal from this attempt.

  • April 08, 2023 20:43

    Punjab has possession now and Juan Mera goes on a solo run by deceiving two defenders with his cheeky skill with the ball but a timely interception will make sure the scoreline remains the same.

  • April 08, 2023 20:40

    Saurav is on the run from the left flank but his far-fetched shot has been missed by the front line of Blasters.

  • April 08, 2023 20:39

    A foul by Freddy Lallawmawma on Luka, nothing serious as the match proceeds without any booking.

  • April 08, 2023 20:35

    Close, Miss! A set piece for Kerala, Vibin takes and passes a curling ball to Victor Mongil who mistimes his jump as Kerala misses an easy chance to get into the lead.

  • April 08, 2023 20:33
