Chennaiyin FC, ATK share points

Coming back after an injury layoff, Atletico de Kolkata skipper Luis Garcia and the tournament’s leading scorer Elano Blumer, of Chennaiyin FC, scored a goal each as the two sides shared points in a top-of-the-table clash in the Indian Super League on Tuesday. Garcia found the target in the 35th minute when he successfully converted from the spot, while Elano struck as late as the 90th minute, also from the spot at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. After missing the last two games, Garcia seemed to be taking Kolkata to another victory before Elano, leading the scoring chart with six goals, dashed the visitors' hopes of pulling off a win on the road.

Garcia, the Spanish defensive midfielder, made a difference in the middle and was one of the best players of the day on either side. ATK maintained their table-topper status scoring against the run of play. But it was Elano, who bagged the Moment of the Match award with his strike at the death. The hosts were awarded the penalty after John Mendonza was brought down by ATk's substitute Kingshuk Debnath.
