The game almost headed into extra time had Pandita directed his free header off a Stewart free-kick straight into the arms of an ever so grateful Gill.

Pandita did well to put his body on the line as he won a free-kick against Hormipam in a crucial position just a little outside the box. Stewart stood on it and just as he was going to take the shot, Pereyra Diaz has made it all the way back towards his own goal and that proved pivotal.

Gill thwarted Stewart's shot and Jitendra's header off the rebound was cleared away by Pereyra Diaz.

Stewart's delivery from a corner has ended up in a goal this time as Chukwu's headed landed kindly for Halder to place it in the net.

And just about a minute after that, Rehenesh pulled off a half save off another chipped attempt by Vazquez before Eli Sabia cleared the ball off the line.

Second half underway

2022-03-15T15:05:24.000Z

No changes by both coaches at the half. If Jamshedpur can pull back two goals from here, they can take the tie to extra-time and eventually to penalties if required. As it stands, and to remind you, Kerala have a two-goal lead on aggregate.

Ivan Vukomanovic will be relatively relieved after Adrian Luna gave the Blasters a two-goal lead on aggregate in potentially another game for them season but Jamshedpur have come close on a couple of occasions towards the end of the half.

Can the Red Miners stage a spectacular come-back or will Kerala record their spot in the final? Second half awaits.

More and more drama

2022-03-15T14:43:57.054Z

Stewart's delivery from a free-kick has Gill in a bit of a fix with the red shirts charging in as the Kerala goalkeeper punched the ball into the air. Eli Sabia got a clear header before Chukwu managed to ward off the ball towards Hartley but is deemed to have fouled Gill in the process. Hartley is absolutely furious and so is Coyle on the sidelines who even gets himself booked for a show of remonstration.

Chukwu chested the ball before slamming it at the back of the net from a Greg Stewart free-kick but a touch from Pandita in between eventually planted the Nigerian in an off-side position before scoring.

The goal was initially allowed by referee Kundu who pointed to the half-way line but a post-communication with his assistant has overtuned the decision to call it an off-side goal.

Drama all around but it's noteable how the Jamshedpur players are frustrate, especially the likes of Stewart and Chukwu.

18' GOAL! Adrian Luna!

2022-03-15T14:18:50.831Z

Vazquez has pulled back a pass to Lune from the left. The Uruguyan then did well to turn Dinliana with Halder not close enough to block the eventual shot that gets past Rehenesh and into the back of the net this time.

Kerala deservedly take the lead here and Jamshedpur now have to score three more than the Tuskers.

9' PEREYRA DIAZ!!

2022-03-15T14:10:03.957Z

Pereyra Diaz has pressed hard as Hartley brings down a lob in the Jamshedpur box and the sliding challenge has come off the woodwork with Nishu playing the rebound back in the path of the Argentine who has slotted it home but from an off-side position on the occasion.

Kick...VAZQUEEEZZZ!!!

2022-03-15T14:01:34.000Z

Just the second minute of the game, with referee Harish Kundu getting us underway at the Tilak Maidan, and Vazquez has shot wide!

Pereyra Diaz was trying for a cross it somehow came off Jitendra to go off as a through perfect through pass for Vazquez en route goal. The Spanish forward has seen Rehenesh come off his line and tried to chip it in but it has gone wide of the left post.

Redemption time!

For Kerala Blasters, it's time to seal their third appearance in the final by seeing out or better their one-goal advantage from the first leg as Jamshedpur eye to do the double after clinching the ISL Shield, for which Owen Coyle's men need to win by a minimum two-goal margin.
