The second-half didn’t change the scenario of the game and Chennaiyin FC was sloppy again and their defenders were too easy on the Blasters’ forward players. Due to this, visitors scored their 3rd goal and it really sealed the game for them. It was a mistake from the Centre-backs who didn’t clear the ball and gave it away to Blasters. Adrian Luna made no mistake and it was 0-3 to Kerala Blasters. It was a fantastic goal from the midfielder as he strikes the ball from outside the box and the ball went into the right bottom corner of the goal.
