Kerala scored through Chris Dagnall (9th minute), Joao Coimbra (30th) and Antonio German (39th), while Delhi hit back with goals from Gustavo Dos Santos (7th minute), Adil Nabi (40th minute) and Sehnaj Singh (90+2 minute).

The 17,000-odd crowd at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium were treated with a six-goal thriller, with five of them coming in the first half itself.

Delhi continue to occupy the third spot on the ISL table with 22 points, the same as FC Goa, and will play each other in the concluding league clash on Sunday. Kerala Blasters finished with 13 points, the same as bottom-placed Mumbai City FC but are now on seventh position on the table.

It seemed like business as usual for Delhi took the lead inside the first seven minutes. The irrepressible Dos Santos opened the scoring as the Brazilian winger made a fine run to intercept a lovely chip from Florent Malouda and then glide it home with his first touch.
