Cido is in a lot of pain and looks like he has rolled his ankle. He was up in a challenge and now Kerala cannot make any substitution and will have to play with just 10 men because they had already exhausted their five substitutions.

PENALTY MISS! What a moment! Jakub Sylvestr has to wait a long time to take the penalty and when he does, Albino Gomes goes to his left guessing it right and punches away the kick. A huge save by the goalkeeper and a massive opportunity goes away from Chennaiyin's hands and the Chennaiyin camp is distraught.

HALF TIME! Chennaiyin FC and Kerala Blasters played an exciting and entertaining 45 minutes at the GMC Stadium. There were plenty of chances for both teams with Chennaiyin FC the better team in the first 25 minutes of the game but after the drinks break, Kerala upped the ante and were equal to Chennaiyin. Surely, there should have been a goal in this one but it's goalless.

WHAT A CHANCE! Nongdamba Naorem, who has got his first start for Kerala Blasters, had a glorious chance to put his team into the lead after he gets a beautiful ball from Seityasen Singh in the middle. But with pressure from the defender, he shoots the ball wide. Naorem should have done better!

Kerala Blasters have quite a bit of the ball but they are unable to inject much pace in their attack and do not have too many attackers in the box to make it more threatening.

What a brilliant passage of play from Chennaiyin. Great run from him on the left and he is surrounded with defenders and looks up to see no one from the Chennaiyin blue in the box. He somehow gets the ball across the face of the goal to the right of the box and Anirudh Thapa comes running to drill the shot that is just wide off the post. So close for Chennaiyin!

Thapa was the star of the Chennaiyin side in the first match and the coach would look up to him once again to provide the thrust upfront. CFC played an attacking game in that match and it is to be seen if they continue with a similar strategy. The CFC midfield also functioned well to thwart Jamshedpur's attacks and will again hold the key to success against the Blasters.

Laszlo would, however, be aware that Kerala Blasters will be eager to open their account after letting go the opportunity against NorthEast United FC despite seizing the early advantage. The CFC coach has said that his team would play high-intensity football this season and going by the way the two-time champions started, the 'Men in Blue' will look to carry on in the same vein.

He had said he expected more from Lallianzuala Chhangte who created plenty of chances in front of goal but failed to convert them. The coach will be hoping for some strikes from the player from Mizoram. For the Blasters, Sergio Cidoncha, who scored the opening goal for Kerala against NorthEast United, and Gary Hooper would be key players.

Kerala Blasters head coach Kibu Vicuna was disappointed with the result against NorthEast United as he believed his team lost two points in the game. He will hope for the first win in what is going to be a long season.
