Bashundhara Kings tasted a fatal 0-4 goals defeat against ATK Mohun Bagan in their second match of Group D (South Asian Zone) of the ongoing AFC Cup at Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Kolkata, India on Saturday.

Local youngster Liston Colaco made his first hat-trick scoring three goals in the 24th, 33rd, 53rd minutes while substitute Australian David Williams added one 77th minute for the hosts.

The day’s match was paused in the 11th minute due to a heavy thunderstorm here. After a 52-minute break, the match officials restarted the game. 

Both Kings and Mohun Bagan earned 3 points with one match and one draw each while Gokulam Kerala earned 3 points with one win and Maziya SRC yet to open account.

Gokulam Kerala are expected to play against Maziya SRC at the same venue at 9 pm (BDT).

If Gokulam Kerala win or draw the game, they will lead the point table; but if they lose, all four teams will have the same 3 points each.
