Atletico play out 0-0 draw against Chennai

Atletico de Kolkata played out a goal-less draw against Chennaiyin FC in a high-intensity Indian Super League fixture to maintain their top spot here on Friday. Watched by a starry Bollywood gathering of Bachchan father-son duo and Deepika Padukone, the match had all the ingredients of an eventful contest.

But a goal eluded both the teams as ATK would consider themselves unlucky after their star striker Fikru Teferra fluffing an easy chance while their marquee player and captain Luis Garcia's shot hit the crosspiece.

Even Chennaiyin FC very nearly went one-up in the 80th minute when Balwant Singh scored using a Jean-Eudes Maurice cross. But the Indian striker’s deflection of his hands was quick to be spotted by the referee who disallowed the goal.
