40' Both Nishu Kumar and Gianni Zuiverloon jump high for a ball! The former gets his head to it but then his trailing leg hits the latter between his legs. Painful moment for him.

20' Messi Bouli gets booked.
18' Halicharan Narzary from the left crosses it towards the centre of the box. Messi Bouli rises high and gets his head to it but it goes straight into the hands of the keeper. The forward should have done better there.
16' GOAL! Deshorn Brown scores after rounding up Bilal Khan with a deft touch after receiving a brilliant long ball. The position of Khan was very flawed which allows Brown to finish it off in an open net. 1-0 to the visitors.
12' Sergio Cidoncha releases a good ball to the right flank where Messi Bouli collects it and dashes into the box. Erik Paartalu runs with him like a shadow and doesn't give any space to Bouli for a shot.

10' Bartholomew Ogbeche get the cross in,  Francisco Borges clears.
9' Mouhamadou Gning gets in a cross, BFC clear. Kerala get a corner.

Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the Indian Super League tie between Kerala Blasters and Bengaluru FC from the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi.
Kerala Blasters host Bengaluru FC in a South Indian Derby tie in the Indian Super League on Saturday at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi. Kerala Blasters would be looking to end their season on a high note after three losses win their last four league games.The Eelco Schattorie-led side looked like a strong contender for the play-offs on paper before the season, but the team never managed to play as an well-oiled unit. 

With rivals, Bengaluru FC up next, it might be the perfect opportunity for Eelco Schattorie's men to overturn their fortunes on the pitch and register their first ever victory over Bengaluru FC in their club history.Bengaluru come into this game with the biggest win in their club history. The Blues thrashed Bhutanese side PARO FC in the AFC Cup play-offs round registered a massive 9-1 victory in Bengaluru with a gigantic 10-1 score on aggregate.

With the ISL knock-out slot already in the bag, there is little for both teams to play for on Saturday. Bengaluru FC are out of the race for the direct qualification to the AFC Champions League 2021-22 as well due the unassailable lead of FC Goa on top of the league standings. Carles Cuadrat is expected to not field a full-strength side to get his bench match ready for the knock-outs.

The game kicks-off at 7.30 PM IST at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi.
