Atletico De Kolkata 2 – 1 Chennaiyin FC
Full Time!! Chennaiyin FC reach the finals of ISL 2015. A touch of unprofessional from Fikru, perhaps, as Fikru sent the dropped ball for throw in instead of to the ATK goalkeeper. ATK players gave their everything but Edel Apoula Bette stood firm and denied numerous efforts from ATK. He is the Hero of the Match.
