ATK Thrash Goa 4-0 in Homeground


Kolkata: Defending champions Atletico de Kolkata thrush 4-0 rout to FC Goa to climb atop the table and put one step in the semi-finals after a one-sided Indian Super League (ISL) clash, on Sunday in Salt lake Stadium.

Former Canada International Iain Hume (68t) struck from a penalty to bring up his sixth goal of the season after Doutie was brought down inside the box.

The win shoot ATK to the top of the table with 20 points, two clear of the Zico’s brigade who in their last outing secured a record 7-0 win in Mumbai.

For Goa, it was their second loss by an identical score line as they had lost to Chennai 0-4 at home earlier. Having won 7-0 at home Goans were high on confidence but ATK coach Antonio Habas had yesterday reminded the visitors that “it was history and anything can happen in football”.

Habas’ boys lived up to the coach’s words as they did not allow an inch to the Goans and kept their invincible record intact. For the record, ATK have never lost to FCG as they have so far won thrice and drew the remaining.
