Nerijus Valskis pulled on back for Chennaiyin FC in the 69th minute after Edu Garcia doubled ATK's lead in the 48th minute. The match is being played without fans in the stands as the Coronavirus threat has forced sport in India as well as the rest of the world to come to a halt. Both teams were two-time former champions, but tonight's victory means an unprecedented third coronation for ATK, and in the process, claimed the exclusive rights to the tag of ISL’s most successful club. Despite their rich history in the ISL, the two faced each other for the first time in a final. In their two previous meetings earlier in the season, ATK won the fixture in Chennai 1-0, while Chennaiyin registered a 3-1 away win in Kolkata in mid-February.

ATK led 1-0 in the first half, courtesy a goal from Hernandez with an assist from the in-form Roy Krishna.

Mar 14, 2020 9:11 pm (IST)

Oh! Save!

80' - Vishal Kaith comes out of his box to keep Chennaiyin FC in the contest. What a ball from David Williams from deep towards Edu Garcia.

Mar 14, 2020 8:57 pm (IST)

Substitution!

Mar 14, 2020 8:51 pm (IST)

That's too high!

59' - A yellow for ATK’s Regin Michael for his kick into Edwin Vanspaul. He had his studs up as he crunched into the Chennaiyin FC player. He should consider himself luck given that he had his foot up near his opponent’s shoulders...

Mar 14, 2020 8:45 pm (IST)

Mar 14, 2020 8:22 pm (IST)

HALF-TIME! Javier Hernandez‘s goal in the difference between the two teams

Good football from both sides but it is the Kolkata-based side who lead going into the break.

The two chances and the two misses from Nerijus Valskis will come to haunt Chennaiyin.

As for ATK, Roy Krishna’s injury will mean that the others will have to step up in his place, especially David Williams.

Mar 14, 2020 8:12 pm (IST)

Roy's Night Comes to an End!

40' - Looks like Roy Krishna will not be able to complete even the first half. He seems to have pulled his hamstring. Just minutes ago, he was late to the through ball and was easily closed out.

He looks distraught as he walks off the pitch. He is replaced by Armando Sosa Pena.

Mar 14, 2020 8:04 pm (IST)

Save!

31' - Arindam Bhattacharja pulls off another save!

Valskis straght to the keeper!

Mar 14, 2020 8:01 pm (IST)

How has that not gone in?

23' - Roy Krishna, from the right, tries to dink the keeper from an impossible angle. It is cleared off the line and it falls to Javier Hernandez, who again smashes it into the ground. Laldinliana Renthlei is again at the right place and at the right time.

Mar 14, 2020 7:55 pm (IST)

Substitution for CFC!

21' - Germanpreet Singh is brought off and in his place comes on Edwin Sydney Vanspaul. He was down on the ground and looked in pain.

He was on a yellow too! 

Mar 14, 2020 7:52 pm (IST)

Meanwhile, a look back to the season that was!

Mar 14, 2020 7:44 pm (IST)

10' - GOAL! What a finish! Javier Hernandez gives ATK the lead! Brilliant pass from Roy Krishna off the left flank!

From defence John Johnson sprays the ball on the left to Roy Krishna, who dribbles past his marker and sends in a cross. David Williams is seen rushing towards the ball but he lets it go and Javier Hernandez hits the ball on the volley. The ball bounces off the ground and over the keeper… into the aback of the net.

The Kolkata-based team extended their lead in the second half when Garcia scored a few minutes into resumption.

Valskis pulled one back for his team with a strike in the 69th minute.

There was more to come as Hernandez scored ATK's third in the stoppage time, and that was the final nail in the coffin for Chennaiyin.

The two teams were brilliant in the play-offs with Chennaiyin getting the better of FC Goa in a thrilling two-legged tie that finished 6-5 on aggregates and ATK producing a second-leg turnaround to send defending champions Bengaluru FC packing with a 3-2 win on aggregate.

However, ATK had the last laugh, bagging an AFC Cup spot alongside a hat-trick of titles.
