KBFC vs ATK MB Detailed Briefing

On Sunday, a crowd of 34,000 spectators in the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium gallery saw only one color: yellow.

But the hundreds of people who had turned out in white-green-maroon shirts to support Mohun Bagan were visible after the game when Australian attacking midfielder Dimitrios Petrats completed his hat-trick to secure a 5-2 victory over the Blasters.

East Bengal FC, another Kolkata club, discovered nine days ago how difficult it is to overcome Kerala Blasters at their home pitch.

Thousands of supporters cheered and shouted in the gallery as they faced the same eleven ferocious footballers.

Mohun Bagan, the last Hero Indian Super League semi-finalist, showed on Sunday that they were not unbeatable.

Kerala Blasters placed Mohun Bagan under unanticipated pressure from the day’s outset, scoring inside six minutes.
The Green-Maroons, who usually play offensive football from the start, were aggressive right away, and the Blasters took advantage.

Nobody could have predicted that their opponents would get the final laugh after flipping the photo upside down within minutes.

Ivan Kalyuzhni, the star of Ukraine, scored two goals to advance the Blasters in the previous encounter. Ivan got a fantastic cross from the right by Sahal Abdul Samad and touched it in front of the goal (1-0).

Under intense assault from the onset, the green-maroon defense almost yielded to this unexpected attack.

The green-maroon army did not surrender after scoring the first goal. They started to counterattack.

By then, the defenders had also begun to amass a sizable force. In the ninth minute, they had a perfect opportunity to make amends for the goal.

Hugo Boumous elevated the ball from the right side of the opposing box, and Petras touched it in.

But, for some odd reason, the assistant referee had already raised the flag and declared the offside judgment.

Boomers continued to assault to recoup the goal. After 15 minutes, Ashish Rai fired a long ball into the opponent’s box to Kawko.

His goal-bound header bounced into goalkeeper Prabsukhon Gill’s palms.

After 26 minutes, Manbir attempted to equalize. This time, the goal came from Boumous’ assist, which Dimitrios Petrats converted.

Boumous received the ball on the left flank, approached the opposing box, and sent a superb cross to ‘Dimi.’

Harmipam Ruiva attempted but failed to stop him. The Australian attacker netted the ball with a magnificent shot (1-1).

The yellow army sat down again once the score was 1-1. Several groups of Kerala football supporters began to accompany them from the gallery with dhak-dhol-kamsan, including ‘Maniappa.’

Jackson Singh had a chance to score a header off a corner towards the end of 32 minutes.

But instead, Sahal and Ivan Kaliuzhni began to attack often through the center, attempting to terrorize the opposing defense.

But by then, Pritam Kotal and Brendan Hamill had begun to calm down. They were putting an end to the regular blaster strikes.

The Kolkata team grew more aggressive and disciplined in defense and offense. They became more hazardous with each onslaught, hoping to exploit flaws in the Blasters’ protection.

ATK Mohun Bagan seized the lead in the 38th minute, Johnny Cowco’s fantastic strike from the right side.

Manbir crossed the ball from the right flank into the area, and Kawko moved in that direction.

He received the ball in the right location at the right time and shot straight at the goal, which Gill couldn’t stop (1-2).

From midfield, Lenny sends the ball to Colaso.

Liston sent the ball to Petras on the right with the ball nearly unopposed into the opponent’s box, and there was nothing but an empty goal in front of him (2-5).

The yells of a few green and maroon fans could be heard for the first time at Kochi’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium following this goal.
