ATKMB goalkeeper Vishal Kaith successfully saved the attempt from Hyderabad’s forward Javier Siverio, and Bartholomew Ogbeche, who hit the upright. While Brendan Hamill missed the only shot for ATKMB.

The regular time witnessed a defensive contest, where both teams failed to score a goal.

ATK Mohun Bagan enjoyed a slight edge in the opening session, but the opposition goal remained largely untroubled as Hyderabad kept a compact defence.

Game report card

ATKMB had its best chance in the 22nd minute when Manvir Singh showed impressive skill to clear his markers and fired a powerful shot from the edge of the box. The left-footed attempt beat the Hyderabad goalkeeper Gurmeet Singh but deflected off the crossbar. Hyderabad had its own share of attacking spells, but they petered out soon as the home defence stuck to its task.

The change came from both sides with few substitutions but they failed to change the scoreboard. Both sides mostly relied on their defenders to keep the match goalless. ATKMB could have got the lead in the 57th minute, but Gurmeet made a valiant save to deny Hugo Boumous, who made a nice attempt with a side-footed volley from an Asish Rai cross. Carl McHugh had a clear chance off a corner in the last minute, but the Irish midfielder could not keep his header on target.

The resultant extra time failed to break the deadlock as the host kept attacking without much avail against some good defending by HFC.
