HALF TIME : Chennaiyin FC 0-0 ATK

A cagey first half marred with numerous half chances but seldom any clear cut chances except the Gregory Nelson and Dhanpal Ganesh ones which ATK did manage to survive. Chennaiyin FC have been a notch better with their passing and play upfront, both at the end of the 45 minutes, it is all-square. Time for Plan B for both the sides?

Talking about Pronay Haldar's absence, Coppell said, "He has been terrific in the  two games we have played so far. Given the unique nature of this competition this year, there could have been a different interpretation of the bookings rule. But having said that, if you commit an action which the referee sees to be a questionable foul, then you have to be punished. But it becomes an even hollower competition if star players 
are not available on either side to play the semi-final or the final."
...
John Gregory showered praise on the ATK team and reiterated how difficult it is to  break down a Steve Coppell-coached outfit. "I’ve said this before; Coppell's teams are very difficult to break down. They played well against Delhi Dynamos, with our former player Balwant Singh scoring a hat-trick. (Manuel) Lanzarote is always a danger as well. We will try to keep him quiet," he said.

Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the Super Cup second semi-final between ATK and Chennaiyin FC. This is your host, Sayak who will keep you company throughout the next two hours or so. 
...
After two back to wins on the trot, ATK and Chennaiyin FC would like to one step further to register their maiden place in the Super Cup Final as they lock horns in the second semi-final of the cup. The semi-final also comes up a perfect opportunity to redeem themselves for this season after a disastrous Indian Super League campaign for both of them. Chennaiyin FC finished bottom of the ladder in the League while ATK finished sixth.

Both teams have had a swing in their form and fortune for different reasons. Chennaiyin FC have had a more sturdier defense in the two Cup games they featured in. Mailson Alves has been rock solid at the back. Anirudh Thapa and Jeje Lalpekhlua have got their form back and are being regulars on the scoresheet, much to John Gregory's relief. The Blues defeated the Highlanders 2-1 and the Islanders 2-0 in the run up to the semi-final.

ATK also have had a similar bettering of form. With the likes of Lanzarote, Edu Garcia and Everton Santos at the back, they are a side to be wary of. ATK's midfield has been successfully complimenting it's forward line by creating numerous chances for Balwant Singh and co. The Red and Whites defeated Dynamos 4-3 in an exhilarating encounter and eased past Real Kashmir by 3-1 in the previous rounds.

The game is expected to be a toughly fought contest with possibility of any team going up to the final.

The game will be LIVE on Star Sports 3, hotstar and JIO TV at 8:30 PM IST from the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar. Sportskeeda will bring all the LIVE updates on the Live Blog as well.
