ATK Mohun Bagan Head Coach Antonio Habas After the Game

"We had a solid match. I am happy with the performance of the team. We are improving everyday and are feeling good about the rest of the season.

"Today was a match of all the players, not an individual. We had the control of the match. I am proud of my team, we are improving everyday. We have the opportunity to increase our level and we are working on that.

"With more minutes, there is better organisation and we have understood the spaces. I am very happy about that.

Bengaluru FC Interim Head Coach Naushad Moosa After the Match

"We started well, We did well in the first 30 minutes. But that goal killed the motivation and we just lost focus.

"We might have to do that. Rahul also got injured today, his hamstring is gone. I need to get more youngsters in, that's the option I have with even Cleiton Silva possibly not there the next game.

"As far as the coach is concerned, I have no idea about it. Let's be more realistic, it is (not possible to qualify for playoffs). We have three games in hand and we keep fighting. It's important to play our game."

What a half! It was all pretty much even until Pratik Chaudhari's mistake caused the penalty catastrophe. As Pratik brought down Roy Krishna and Krishna converted the penalty, the momentum swung in their favour. Just before half time, ATKMB were denied a penalty but Marcelinho made the best of that free kick, striking it straight into the goal. Bengaluru FC hardly had any chances and have a lot to do in the next 45 minutes.

44' | GOAL! Marcelinho puts ATKMB 2-0 up. That't a bit of the Brazilian magic as he kicks the free kick right outside the box straight into the goal and a full-stretched Gurpreet could do nothing about it.

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Bengaluru FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan: Marcelinho Magic, Krishna Penalty Helps ATKMB Win

ISL 2020-21 Bengaluru FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan HIGHLIGHTS: ATK Mohun Bagan beat Bengaluru FC 2-0 to complete a double on them in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 during Match No.88 at the Fatorda Stadium on Tuesday. Both the goals were scored in the first half and ATKMB showed exemplary game management in the second half to get the big win. Sunil Chhetri's shot at goal is dealt with by Arindam. Roy Krishna has his header go just wide. Gurpreet denies Sandesh Jhingan's attempt at goal. ATKMB were denied another penalty and instead got a free kick just outside the box but Marcelinho found the back of the net from that. Pratik Caudhari gives away a silly penalty and Roy Krishna makes no mistake from the spot. Another big save from Gurpreet as Carl McHugh went for goal. Roy Krishna has the ball in the BFC half after a mistake from Pratik but his fizzing shot is palmed out by Gurpreet. Early on, the game is balanced with both teams looking for spaces to work with. Cleiton Silva is not available today and hence, Kristian Opseth gets a start. For ATK Mohun Bagan, Pritam Kotal is suspended and hence, missing from the line-up.


ATK Mohun Bagan and Bengaluru FC last played each other on December 21 and the former came out victorious 1-0. The deciding goal was a scintillating strike by David Williams in the 33rd minute of the game. Both the teams were pretty close in terms of the number of shots they took at each other with BFC just edging ATKMB but the Green and Maroon Brigade had one more shot on target than Bengaluru.

Ahead of the match, BFC interim coach Naushad Moosa stressed on the need for his side to stay compact. "The way Bagan is playing, they have been scoring even after conceding and that is one thing we have to be careful (about). We have to be more compact. It won't be an easy match," he said. "First (thing) is not to concede goals as we know we can score anytime. With Sunil (Chhetri), Cleiton Silva, anything can happen,"

ATK Mohun Bagan are comfortably sitting in second position and are three points behind leaders Mumbai City FC. A win will put them on par with the Islanders. However, coach Antonio Habas prefers to take each game at a time. "The aim is to be in the playoffs mathematically and then be in the 1st position. And after that semi-finals and then in the final, if possible. We are going to go match by match and day by day," said Habas. "The Bengaluru match is just another game. The team is continuing to do well in defense. We are improving in attack and this is important for us."
