Atletico de Kolkata have lifted the Indian Super League trophy a second time by beating Kerala Blasters once again in the final. Bot teams toiled hard and as Iain Hume said in the end, it is unfair that there has to be a loser.
Unlike the semi finals, both teams showed played the game in good spirits. It may have been partly due to fines that were slapped on them recently due to incidents in previous matches. It may also have been due to the fact that both sides recognised the difficulty of getting to this stage of the tournament had a certain amount of mutual respect because of that.
