6:28pm: The players will be playing in front one of the finest player ever to have graced the game. That's right, Pele is in town and he will be watching from the stands as the last years finalists lock horns once again. His presence will certainly add to the excitement and adrenaline amongst the players as they will want to impress the legend.

6:25pm: Iain Hume was undoubtedly the best player for Kerala Blasters last season, he single-handedly led them to the finals. However, this season his allegiance lies with Atletico de Kolkata and he is yet to score a goal for his new employers. What better way then to get off the mark against your former team? Also, It will be interesting to see if he follows it up with a celebration if he does get one in the back of the net.

6:20pm: After the one day break, the ISL resumes with a pretty interesting fixture. Reigning champions Atletico de Kolkata play hosts to Kerala Blasters FC, the team they beat in the finals last season.

Reigning champions Atletico de Kolkata play hosts to Kerala Blasters FC, the team they beat in the finals last season. Both teams have played two games, winning one and drawing the other, but the visitors are above ATK due to a superior goal difference.

A disappointing draw in their last match will make both teams come into this one with an even more aggressive intent. Kerala Blasters were beaten in the dying minutes of last season's final and they will look to avenge that bitter defeat.

Both teams have strengthened their squads since then and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top this time around.
