Chennaiyin FC went on to become two-time Indian Super League champions, beating Bengaluru FC 3-2 in the final on Saturday (March 17).
An early header from Sunil Chhetri and late goal from Miku was not enough to keep away John Gregory’s side from sealing ISL 3 at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru. A brace from Mailson Alves and a super finish from Raphael Agusto gave the Chennai side a much deserved win on the night.
Here are some of the reactions after the final whistle!

Deserved winners. Didn't let pressure get the better of them despite being a goal down initially. Second title in four years. Commendable! https://t.co/UEaA9wN7BS

Well done, @ChennaiyinFC. Deserved champions on the night. This is not right for @bengalurufc, though. How do you win 14 matches in a season and not get an AFC slot for yourself? Something for @IndSuperLeague to think about.
