That's all, folks! Catch all the sporting updates right here on Sportskeeda. We will be back with the live coverage tomorrow of the North East United FC vs Jamshedpur FC match. Good night!!
...
FT - The ref calls an end to the game as the season opener of the ISL Season 4 ends in a goalless draw. Both the teams were solid in defense but lacked in the final three as Berbatov had a night to forget in his Indian football debut. ATK will be left ruing their chances as they should have capitalized on their first-half showing.

The second half was more even but the sides played defensive football and lacked the attacking intent.
...
91' - Berbatov has his first shot on goal with a header straight at Debjit in the ATK goal as we head for the final seconds in the game.
...
90' - 3 minutes of play has been added on as extra time with the sides still locked at 0-0 as we enter the injury time with Kerala having a corner attempt.
...
89' - Both the sides have slowed their game down as it almost seems like they are playing for the 0-0 draw.
...
87' - Nemanja Lakic-Pesic has been declared the 'Hero of the Match' for his steely defense fending off the ATK attacks till now with his determined performance.
...
82' - The two changes made by Kerala manager Muelensteen show the home side's intent as both the changes will add much-needed pace to the Blasters in the final moments of action.
...
80' - Substitution for Kerala Blasters
The home side makes two quick changes as C.K VIneeth and Courage Pekuson make way for Prasanth and Jackichand Singh respectively.
...
74' - Substitution for ATK

Rupert Nongrum is replaced by Bipin Singh in the second change made by Teddy Sheringham tonight.
...
73' - Another chance for ATK!! Robin Singh receives the ball on the left side and goes past a defender and crosses it in but Hitesh is too ahead to connect properly and the ball goes out.
...
71' - Courage Pekuson is stretchered off after going down injured. Kerala Blasters will be hoping it is not a major setback as the Ghanian has shown promise tonight with his counter-attacking moves.
...
69' - WHAT  A SHOT!! Zequinha raises his arms up in frustration as his curling shot after cutting in from the left flank hits the Kerala goal as the home side and the crowd heave a sigh of relief.
...
66' - Courage Pekuson is off after another clearance by Kerala defense and gets Sifneos on the counter but Jordi Figueras slides in with a perfectly timed tackle to put the ball out for a corner.
...
53' - Zequinha takes a long distance shot but his effort is too timid to trouble Rachubka in the Kerala goal who gathers the ball and punts it out for a Kerala attack.
...
62' - Substitution for ATK

Finnish striker Kuqi comes off as Indian attacker Robin Singh comes in to add teeth to the ATK forward line.
...
59' - Substitution for Kerala Blasters

Rene Muelensteen makes the first change for the home side as he takes out Iain Hume and Mark Sifneos comes on for the ISL top scorer.
...
53' - After an ATK corner, Courage Pekuson gathers a loose ball from Perreira but his final ball is too heavy for Berbatov as another Kerala counter fails to come to fruition.
...
49' - CHANCE!! Vineeth cuts in from the right wing and takes a powerful effort but Debjit palms it away from the goal as Kerala get the first chance of the half.
...
48' - Both teams have started off on the aggressive front with high pressing and tackles flying about as the teams look to get their footing in the match and take control.
...
45' - The second half kicks off in Kochi as the teams aim to break the deadlock in the season opener as the home side Kerala will look to do better in the final 45 minutes.
...
The big names on the field today have failed to make an impact so far. A talk from their respective coaches in the dressing room might bring about a change of fortunes in the second half. Join us shortly as the second half kicks off...
...
HT - The ref brings an end to the first half as both the teams haven't able to score in a patient half of football with ATK probably going in as the happier side amongst the two with their controlled passing and movement. Kerala Blasters have struggled to get going and only looked good in patches. Dimitar Berbatov has looked highly peripheral and hasn't contributed much to the home side in the first 45.

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda Football for the second half action as we return with the final 45 minutes of action from Kochi.
...
45' + - Milan Ongnam takes another chance from outside the box but is off target and Debjit isn't concerned with the effort.
...
45' - Two minutes have been added to the first half as the teams are yet to break the deadlock at Kochi.
...
43' - Iain Hume is fed a cross from the right flank following which he attempts a bicycle kick inside the opposition's box but fails to fully execute it as he fails to connect with the delivery.
...
39' - Rupert puts in a cross after being put through on the wing by Hitesh Sharma but it deflects off Pesic and the ball is out for the corner.
...
36' - Chances of a goal have looked slim in this period, but it hasn't been anything but gripping. The build-up to the plays have been superb, and are keeping the crowd on its feet.
...
33' - More than half an hour has gone in the opener but Berbatov is left cut a frustrated figure as the home side haven't got going with ATK having the upper hand on the pitch so far.
...
28' - Debjit with a brave clearance!! Comes out to punch clear a cross that almost got to Berbatov in the box. Gutsy from the ATK custodian to say the least.
...
26' - Kerala survive!! ATK's Kuqi almost scores after a cross from the left isn't dealt with initially by the Kerala defense and Kuqi almost scored but Pekic clears the ball away from the box.
...
23' - Rupert is brought down by Lalruatthara resulting in a good freekick opportunity for the Bengal side. The kick is taken by Jordi but hits the wall and Rachubka collects with ease.
...
22' - ATK are controlling the flow of the game so far as Kerala have struggled to get ball possession with ATK keeping almost 70% possession in the match so far.
...
19' - Kuqi takes a weak shot on the turn after the ball falls to him after Hitesh fails to control it but those are easy pickings for Rachubka in the Blasters goal.
...
15' - Scare for Kerala!! A mistimed backpass puts Rachubka on the spot as he heads out of his goal and rushes in to boot the ball away to safety.
...
13' - Rachubka saves it!! A shot from Hitesh Sharma from the right headed for the goal is kept out by the diving Rachubka as ATK keep the pressure on the home side.
...

...
