ISL-4: Zequinha scores winner for ATK at NorthEast United FC!

Defending Indian Super League champions ATK scored a vital 1-0 victory away at NorthEast United FC at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati on Friday night to keep their semifinal challenge alive.

The guests from ATK put a lot of pressure on the hosts NorthEast United FC, but they could not hit the target and the game went into the break goalless.

After the break NorthEast United FC were better in the game, but the better chances continued to be with the guests from ATK, but the champions had to wait until the 73rd minute to take lead and it happened in spectacular fashion as Portuguese playmaker Zequinha scored off a volley from a rebound.

NorthEast United FC now upped the tempo in the final minutes with winger Halicharan Narzary having their best chance, but it wasn’t enough as ATK take the three points back home to Kolkata.
