Kerala had a perfect start, just 10 minutes after Luna swung into a fun corner to get Jackson home. Glenn Martins then dominated the yellow shirt in action, hitting a long volley against the play’s run.

Kerala immediately went ahead 2-0, Luna showed his brilliance this time. Uruguay were placed on the left side inside the channel and the 29-year-old was delighted to dip the ball behind the keeper from 30 yards out. The ball hit the post and Patience went inside leaving Moirangtham without a chance to keep out.

Returning twice in quick succession, Goa rode on Ortiz’s strike. The Spaniard got a ball from Savior Gamma, he turned quickly and hit Prabhusukhan Singh Gill on a post near him.

Kerala came close to making it 3-1 near the halftime whistle while Sahal Abdul Samad shot above the bar from Alvaro Vazquez’s cross. Goa drew the level from the next attack, and it was Edu Bedia who left Gill high and dry by curling in an excellent corner.

The first half ended in a frenzy with both sides drawing 2-2. In the second period, both the teams showed caution as the chances were low and there was a long distance in between. Three times till the final whistle, Edu Bedia’s attempt from the free-kick from the crossbar disappointed Goa as the match ended as it started with both teams sharing the spoils.
