Hugo Boumos and Dimitri Petratos both came so close to scoring but still the second goal continues to elude ATK Mohun Bagan.

Both Bengaluru FC and ATK Mohun Bagan are heavily reliant on their wings for attack but when it comes to defending, ATKMB have been the better side due to their concrete structure.
