Strikers, defenders, custodians, they were all responsible for some great and not-so-great performances during the second round of ISL 2015. While a few could go home happy with three points, many of these Top Players had to be content with a draw, and some even ended up on the losing side. On the Flops side, a few got away as their teams were lucky to earn a point through not-so-deserved draws.
TWO HALVES OF calculated tactical battle saw Kerala Blasters and Mumbai City cancel each other out in a 0-0 draw in front of a jam-packed crowd of 61,000+ fans in Kochi tonight. But Mumbai will be the more disappointed side due to being denied two legitimate penalties towards the end of each half which could have easily sealed the game for them.
A REJUEVENATED KERALA BLASTERS will look to repeat their Tuesday night exploits when they host a determined Mumbai City side looking to shake off a bad start to their ISL campaign.

The fan quotient for both KERALA BLASTERS FC and NORTHEAST UNITED FC is the highest amongst all ISL teams. But in their home match, as expected, the Blasters' fans swept the stadium in yellow, leaving no scope for the Highlanders. While the Keralites had their superstar co-owner Sachin Tendulkar to lead the cheering, the NorthEast team missed Bollywood star John Abraham, their owner. With a record attendance, crossing 60,000, it was truly "yellow mein khelo" in the stadium. We bring you few fan moments from both sides (yes, there were a few brave NEU supporters).
