Season six of the Hero Indian Super League is all set to culminate with a showdown between ATK and Chennaiyin FC at the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, Fatorda on Saturday. ATK and Chennaiyin have both won the ISL twice already and are looking to become the first side to win it three times.

The two teams were brilliant in the play-offs with Chennaiyin FC getting the better of FC Goa in a thrilling two-legged tie that finished 6-5, while ATK produced a second leg turnaround to get the better of Bengaluru FC 3-2 on aggregate. This is the first time that these two clubs are meeting each other in the final. Interestingly, neither club has lost an ISL final - a run that will end for one of them on Saturday.

On Friday, Chennaiyin FC’s head coach Owen Coyle said that he has nothing but the utmost respect for ATK, for the quality of players they have. Chennai will stick to our style because we believe that we can win games with it. We are still under pressure as we go into the final and we want to be because that’s when we are at our best. When this team is focused and concentrated, that's when our quality kicks in.

While ATK’s head coach Antonio Habas said that they have to enjoy the final and try to win it. But we have to respect the opponent. We have 90 minutes and some more to compete for a win. There is only one final.
