Antonio Habas👔 will be extremely satisfied with his team's performance.
Pune's desperation to earn a ✌win was visible from the very beginning itself. But Atletico who looked 😎sharp did not make it easy for them. Though both teams found it hard to keep😯 possession, an exciting end-to-end game was displayed😍 by the teams. Minutes before the break, the home side scored the opener. Jonatan Lucca's corner was powerfully headed by Eduardo Ferreira to give them the lead⚽. Soon after the goal, Ferreira was stretchered off the pitch due to an injury😟.
Pune were determined to extend their lead and got successful in the 56'🕐 through a penalty. Pritam Kotal received a yellow for handling👋 the ball inside the penalty box. Aníbal Zurdo made no mistake in converting the ⚽penalty. Atletico looked dangerous after the 2⃣nd goal and started dominating👍 the game. 10 minutes after the hour mark, the visitors were also awarded a penalty when Mohamed Sissoko fouled ⭐Helder Postiga. Though Betel saved Ian Hume's kick😳, the rebound fell at the Canadian's feet who only had to tap in. Towards the end, Kolkata came close to scoring an equaliser on several occasions but couldn't😞 find the back of the net.
