The penultimate game of the 21/22 ISL season saw FC Goa and Kerala Blasters play out a 4-4 draw. Here are the three talking points from the game. 

Cabrera nets a hat-trick 

With nothing left to play for, the two teams went at it relentlessly across the two halves. After being two down by half-time, Airam Cabrera scored two quick goals right out of the tunnel, and completed his hat-trick with ten minutes remaining on the clock. While Goa thought that their victory was sealed, a late comeback from Kerala Blasters ensured that the game ended level. 

Jorge Pereyra gets a double 

Pereyra has been in fine form for the Blasters this season, and will be a key player for them in the semifinals as well. He gave Kerala Blasters an early advantage, scoring two quick goals in the first half to set up a brilliant second half – which saw six goals being scored between the two teams. 

Semi-finals ahead for Kerala Blasters 


After Hyderabad FC defeated Mumbai City FC, it was confirmed that Kerala Blasters were the final team to qualify for the playoffs. And now, they have a huge task ahead of them, competing against three of the best teams in the division. 

The final game of the league revealed that defense is just as important as a good attack, and it can be difficult to outscore your opponents, especially at a high level. So, the defensive performance needs to improve from Kerala Blasters if they hope to secure the title this year.
