Kochi: Two years after facing the heartbreak of missing out on a title, Kerala Blasters will go all out with a partisan crowd behind them for their maiden Indian Super League (ISL) ˆtitle against former champions Atletico de Kolkata (ATK) in a replay of the summit clash during first edition.

While they would have little do with on-field action but it will yet again be a prestige fight between the franchises co-owned by Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly.

Kerala, who have been in tremendous form during the business end of the league, after a scrappy start, have lost to ATK by a solitary goal during the 2014 edition.

Now, with a capacity crowd of 55,000 expected to turn up at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here, Steve Coppell’s side are brimming with confidence and they have the reason to do so having won six out of the seven matches that they have played at this venue.
