Kerala Blasters FC beat Chennaiyin FC with a 3-0 scoreline in ISL
 
Vasco, Kerala Blasters FC recorded an impressive second consecutive win in their 2021-22 Indian Super League (ISL) campaign after defeating Chennaiyin FC with a 3-0 scoreline
at the Tilak Maidan Stadium here on Wednesday.

The Yellow Army rise to third place in the points table while handing the Marina Machans their
second defeat of the season, which sees them drop to sixth.
Jorge Pereyra Diaz (9’) gave KBFC the lead by scoring his third goal of the campaign prior to
Sahal Abdul Samad (38’) doubling the advantage before halftime. Adrian Luna (79’) then scored
his first goal of the season to put the result beyond any doubt in the second half.

Jorge Diaz sent his team into an early lead after a lofted through ball found the striker in ample
space behind CFC’s backline. His right-footed shot towards the bottom left corner gave no chance
to Vishal Kaith to make a save. Prabhsukhan Gill was called into action just before the half-hour mark who made a brilliant right-handed save to keep away a header from his own defender. Germanpreet Singh had a fabulous opportunity to score the equaliser just before the drinks break but his shot from roughly 12-yards out went wide to the shock of his teammates.

Sahal Abdul Samad then extended the lead by scoring from inside the box after a poor clearance from Kaith handed the ball to KBFC forwards in his own half. Sahal’s initial shot was blocked by
Reagan Singh but the midfielder made no mistake with the rebound and calmly placed the ball in the back of the net. Vazquez then had the chance to score a third before halftime but he could not beat
the goalkeeper from a one-on-one situation.

Salam Singh and Lukasz Gikiewicz were sent as halftime changes from Bozidar Bandovic to influence the game. Lalthathanga Khawlhring became the first player to get booked for a foul in the second half which was less eventful than the first. Despite sustained periods of pressure, CFC did not have a clear scoring opportunity until the second drinks break.

Post the resumption of the match, Adrian Luna opened his account with a powerful right-footed strike following a lack of communication amongst the CFC defenders. The Yellow Army remained in control
of the match post the third goal and secured another three points with back-to-back 3-0 wins.
Kerala Blasters FC await the challenge of Jamshedpur FC in their next game at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday. Chennaiyin FC on the other hand will get a week’s rest before their clash against Bengaluru FC at the same venue on Thursday.
