Indian Super League Final Preview: Kerala Blasters Vs Atletico de Kolkata
After an enthralling competition, Indian Super league which started around two months ago has reached the most important day of the competition. Kerala Blasters and Atletico de Kolkata are the two survivors after a hard fought battle, who will clash in the finals tonight at D.Y Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai.

Both the teams have reached the finals after their tough semi-finals. Kerala defeated one of the favourites, Chennaiyin FC in a dramatic game with the score reading 4-3 across two legs, while Kolkata defeated FC Goa via penalties.

But, the finals is going to be a different affair with just one leg to decide the winner. The team, which plays well on the day would be walking away as the champions of the Indian Super League.

It would be very different to choose a favourite between the two, for Kerala has been in great form of late and Kolkata has always maintained their favourite tag throughout the competition, irrespective of the present performance.

As far as latest results are concerned, it is Kerala, which has an upper hand. A time had come, where one would not have even thought of Kerala reaching the playoffs. It is history now.

Kerala would be aware of the threat that their striker, Fikru possesses along with the experienced Luis Garcia, who is going to be another instrumental player for Kolkata. Kerala Blasters might not have been a great scoring team, but their match against Chennaiyin FC in the first leg of the semi-finals showed us otherwise, as they score three goals.

Kerala would be expecting a similar performance tonight as well with Iain Hume being their main player, who has been their highest goal scorer with four goals.

Irrespective of the result, one expects a close game between the two. An entertaining game could be the best script anyone could think of, especially after the success of the Indian Super League in its debut season.
