Ten men Bengaluru FC secured 2-0 against ATK to hand defending champions the fourth loss in a row first time in club history.
Defending Champion ATK received a 0-2 defeated against Bengaluru FC in the 63rd match of the Hero Indian Super League 4th edition played at Yuba Bharti Krirangan Kolkata on Saturday night.
A good win for the visiting team as they collected all three points on the road. Just one own goal from Jordi Montel in the 3rd minute of the game separated the two teams at the half-way mark.
ATK initiated the second half in aggressive mode. They wanted to get the equalizer early but it never came. They built many moves but none materialized into a goal.
In the 83rd minute, a lovely pass by Erik Paartalu set Miku through and the Venezuelan put it home to seal the deal. ATK will be disappointed with the way this match began which forced them to play behind the eight ball.
This is now their fourth loss in a row and their campaign is going from bad to worse. Bengaluru FC, on the other hand, have strengthened their position on top of the points table.
