ISL 2018-19: Kerala Blasters start the campaign with a 2-0 victory over ATC


Full time match report: ATK's new manager Steve Koppel was all smile when he talked to the first two fixtures of his new team - both at home.

Kapil told reporters on the eve of the first match, "I could not ask anything better. There is no insult to Kerala and North East United, but we will try and make a bit of a fort in our house." And Salt Lake Stadium was actually a fort for at least ATC against Kerala Blowers, who had defeated four different occasions during losing only four. But, on Saturday, the fort of Kolkata was violated .. and how!

Each of the goals of Slovenian Poplatnik and Serbia's Matej Poplatnik gave Kerala the first victory of the season in a competition, they completely dominated. The men of Kerala started taking action on the gas since the beginning, while the domestic team started retreating. The first opportunity came in the fourth minute soon after Lalruthara moved in a cross from his left wing, although there was not much amount in it.

In the 22nd minute, poplatnik had a tasty one-to-one condition to capitalize but he was left below his first touch. Kolkata's first real opportunity came through Everton Santos, after receiving a long ball outside the box, highlighted a shot rocket which missed the crossbar by a whisker. Kolkata's big moment came in the 38th minute when he got a corner and Jayesh Rane got alone in the last post, but the winger led the post-retirement efforts so far.

The first half became unusable, though Kerala made the hosts cause all kinds of trouble, especially due to the poplatan tactics that would appear almost everywhere.

The second half started on a slow note. Kerala moved ahead of ATK's inspiration moments, although neither was translated into balls ending behind the net. However, when it changed in the 76th minute Poplatnik broke the deadlock with a looping header. It started with Stojanovic, whose goal was deflected at the target and the ball fell for Poplatnik, who rotated the ball to make Kerala a worthy lead before a disappointing bhattacharj.

After about 10 minutes, Kolkata had to admit more misery, Slovis Stojanovic controlled a long ball near the box, turning his back from two Kolkata defenders and then highlighting a stunning strike which left the top left Finished in the corner

Kerala achieved three points and sent Kolkata to the bottom of the table. Koppel, who wanted to make the palace of Salt Lake Kolkata, is still the time - finally, the first game - but if he wants to end in the winning party the next time, then things have to be shaken. Although he missed the services of Kalu Uche, his team would need a lot more than the Nigerian's scoring talent.

On the other hand, Kerala has defeated its slavery-in-chief and has got a moral boost in the number table, besides the top spot, who has hurt him repeatedly. Poplatnik was torn with creative energy tonight and it would have delighted David James. India's U-17 World Cup star Dhiraj Singh also made his ISL debut for Kerala and made a firm determination after his debut. It is a time of celebration in God's own country, while atletico de kolkata players need to take pieces 
and build them the castle of Salt Lake, their manager has imagined.
