ISL 2019-20: Late goals help ATK hold Bengaluru FC

Edu Garcia

Bengaluru, February 22: Two late goals by ATK cancelled two scored in the first half by Bengaluru FC as the final Indian Super League (ISL) tie scoreline read 2-2 at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru.

Bengaluru FC ended their ISL league stage campaign with 30 points and could possibly finish fourth, should Chenniayin FC win their final league game against NorthEast United.

Dimas Delgado (18') and Kevaughn Frater (35') were on the score-sheet for the home side while substitute Edu Garcia (86') and Michael Soosairaj (90') scored for the visitors.


Carles Cuadrat handed Kevaughn Frater his first start as he partnered Thongkhosiem Haokip upfront.

Meanwhile, Antonio Habas, like Bengaluru, handed several of his star players on the bench as he named Dheeraj Singh in between the sticks.



The breakthrough came in the 18th minute when Parag Srivas was brought down on the edge of the box by Salam Ranjan. From the ensuing free-kick, Dimas Delgado's effort went straight into the back of the net.

ATK could have equalised soon after when David Williams' corner-kick was headed out by Harmanjot Khabra but the ball went straight to the feet of Jayesh Rane on the edge of the box. However, the Indian midfielder's feeble attempt went out of play.
