The reigning Champions of Indian Super Leauge Atlético de Kolkata suffered 3-0 defeat to Chennayin FC last night in the ISL First leg semi final at the Balewadi Stadium,Pune. ANTONIO LÓPEZ HABAS was disappointed in his post match interview. Here’s what the Spaniard spoke about the game, the performance and bouncing back..

‘If i play sameehg in the right flank, you will question, if i play him in left flank, you will question me again.. I do my best’…
‘Referee allowed to many things to go against us in first 30 mins’..
‘I needed goals & hence put Lekic in as an extra striker for Borja, who picked up a knock’
‘Today we conceded 3 goals, we may score 3 in Kolkata’ ..!

Atlético de Kolkata will have to face a huge challenge at the Salt Lake Stadium on 16th December.We have to win by

(i) 4-0
(ii) 4-1
(iii) 5-2
              etc margin.
Habas told before that the Small Ground will cause some difficulties and we faced that difficulties.Chennaiyin players were practicing from 9 days on the very ground but we had only 2 days.

And there’s a chance that Hélder Postiga might play on 16th .So let’s hope that we will come back strongly.
