NEUFC Interim Head Coach Khalid Jamil After the Match

"It is because of the players that we got the result. They worked hard and we deserved this victory.

ATKMB Head Coach Antonio Habas After the Game

"The first half we were better than the opponent, we had two chances and didn't score. In the second half, the referee took negative decision for us and the opponent scored the goal. The complexion of the game could have been different.

"It was a foul and the linesman had the flag up, I have nothing more to say. I think today the referee doesn't have the knack, I don't understand his decision when the linesman had the flag up.

"Manvir plays with good attitude, put up a good performance, may be needs to score more."

Luis Machado After the Match

"We are only looking at the playoffs, doesn't matter if it's Gerard or Khalid, we just want to make the playoffs.

"I can play in all the three positions up front. I just want to help the team score goals.

"It's all about the training. We like to play short and with Gallego coming good, it's good."

And that's it after 45 minutes at the Fatorda - no goals despite a few chances for both teams. Arindam had to pull off a save against Luis Machado's shot but other than that, ATKMB looked more dangerous than their opponents. Towards the end of the half, ATKMB had a brilliant chance and with just a bit more perfection on the pass from David Williams, Prabir Das could have given them the lead. Nonetheless, the second half is where ATKMB truly come alive!

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, NorthEast United FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan: NEUFC Beat ATKMB 2-1

ISL 2020-21 NorthEast United FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan HIGHLIGHTS: NorthEast United FC beat ATK Mohun Bagan 2-1 to get their second win on the trot in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 during Match No.72 at the Fatorda Stadium on Tuesday. ATKMB pushed hard after going down, NEUFC had a chance to score their third but in the end it was the Gallego winner that gave NEUFC the win. Federico Gallego scores a beauty from outside the box to give NEUFC the lead again. Roy Krishna scores the equaliser for ATKMB. Mashoor Shereef hits the post with his header off a Gallego cross. Luis Machado finds the back of the net in the 60th minute to put NEUFC in the lead. Both the teams have got a good start and a half-chance fell to Javi Hernandez. NorthEast United FC get us underway. ATKMB had defeated NEUFC 2-0 in the last encounter on January 3, 2021.


NorthEast United FC snapped a seven-game winless run in their previous game as they defeated Jamshedpur FC 2-1 in what was their first game since head coach Gerard Nus' sacking. Now, they will be looking to get their fourth win of the season and a second on the trot when they face ATK Mohun Bagan, who edged out Chennaiyin FC in their previous encounter. ATKMB have won two, drawn two and lost one in their last five matches and after a stoppage time win over Chennaiyin, they would want a more confident and solid win over NEUFC.

NEUFC's new acquisition Deshorn Brown from Bengaluru FC had scored the winner in their previous game and they will be hoping he can continue on that front. "It's a different style to what Bengaluru play," Brown explained, ahead of the clash with ATKMB. "I think we will get more scoring opportunities here. I like the style and it will do better for me in the long run as well. The difference is that these guys, they tried to penetrate down the middle as compared to Bengaluru. At Bengaluru, they try to go out wide and play crosses, but the delivery of the crosses is not great which makes it really difficult for the strikers to score."

For ATKMB, it's all about keeping in pursuit of Mumbai City FC in the hope that they will slip up. Antonio Lopez Habas' men left it late to win their previous encounter game against Chennaiyin FC and the Spanish coach understands that NEUFC will present a tough challenge as well. "I think the team played well for 90 minutes against Chennnaiyin," he said. "The players understood that we needed to win the game. We changed the system of how we play and under this new system, it was possible to score more goals. We have to give respect to our opponents and we have to be at our best to win the match," Habas added. "They are a difficult opponent. They have good players and they will make it difficult for us."
