Chennaiyin FC players celebrate after scoring a last-minute equaliser to earn a draw vs Atletico de Kolkata.


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 in Chennai 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.
