Two-time Indian Super League (ISL) champion ATK dominated the game from the kick-off as they outclassed Hyderabad FC with an emphatic 5-0 win on Friday. The home side played with the high tempo and created several chances in the opening few minutes. David Williams brought cheers on the home supporters' face as he broke the deadlock in the 25th minute. Roy Krishna doubled ATK's lead inside two minutes of the opening goal. Williams then found the back of the net in the 44th minute, helping the hosts go into the half-time break with a three-goal lead. Hyderabad started to control the game in the midfield but they lacked the perfection in the final-third. Edu Garcia, who came in as a substitute in the 70th minute, scored two late goals in 88th and 94th minute to hand ATK their first win of the season.

Lovely bot of play but of no use!Lovely bit of one-touch play from Hyderabad players in the mid-field bit in the end it was for use as the pass in the final third has been really poor today and this time also the player had too much power in the pass and it went away from his teammate and it will be a goal-kick for ATK.

What a mess from Hyderabad goalkeeper!Hyderabad Kamaljit showing nerves. He took so long to pass the ball which allowed ATk forward to put him under pressure. The ball just went wide after taking deflection. That would been a really bizarre goal had found it the back of the net.
