Brillian Subrata denies Blasters full points

Kerala Blasters couldn’t cash in on home advantage as they were played out a goalless draw with Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League home match on Wednesday. The result meant Mumbai were on fourth spot with 12 points from eight games while Kerala remained at sixth position with nine points from eight encounters.

With support of home crowd, Blasters should have logged home full points but India’s premier goalkeeper Subrata Paul, who is one of the highest paid Indian players in league, came up with some good saves to help the Ranbeer Kapoor co-owned side leave with a point. Paul, pulled off three saves for the ‘Blue Brigade’. Nicholas Anelka was not in his element on Wednesday although he essayed defence splitting pass in the 50th minute but Kerala captain and custodian David James averted the danger with a clearance.

The closest Mumbai came to scoring was in the 77th minute when Anelka’s cross was cleared by left-back Saumik Dey outside the 6-yard box. But Tiago’s first-time shot came off the right vertical.
