A late minute goal from Ian Hume secured Atletico a point.
Atletico started the game 👌brilliantly, threatening the NorthEast defence with their pace. But it was the visitors who found the opener. In the 5', a 😯grave defensive mistake from Kolkata enabled Nicolas Velez to score his first ISL goal. The home side reacted strongly💪 after NorthEast took the lead. They pressed the visitors and kept possession of the ball. Javi Lara was ⭐instrumental in creating a lot of chances. However, an equaliser remained out of their hands.
Atletico dominated the initial minutes of the 2⃣nd half. Slowly, NorthEast notched🔝 up their game and started taking control. Much of the game was played in Atletico's half but the hosts troubled the visitors with some💨 quick counter attacks. Towards the end, the game was more of an end to end affair. When it looked like the scorecard will not have any further 🤔changes, Ian Hume equalised. Lara's free-kick was directed towards the far post by Helder Postiga where it found ⭐Hume and he did not have much to do.
