The battle for the final semifinal spot in the 2021-22 Indian Super League will go down to the wire after Kerala Blasters stunned Mumbai City FC 3-1 to leapfrog the defending champions to fourth position on the points table with one round left to play.

ISL: Kerala Blasters sweep aside Chennaiyin to breach top-four places

Kerala Blasters FC recorded an impressive second consecutive win in their 2021-22 Indian Super League campaign after defeating Chennaiyin FC 3-0 on Wednesday.
