ISL: Atletico de Kolkata Treating Opening Game Like Final: Atletico de Kolkata may be the newest team on the horizon in a football-mad city but it hopes to embrace the metropolis with a spectacular performance against Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League opener on Sunday.
It may sound as an alarm bell to Mumbai, ATK's opponent's in the ISL opener, that the city franchise is considering the match nothing short of a 'final'.
"Namaskar, we are ready, we are very excited to start. For many it may be the start of the league, but for us it is the big final. We'll try to win that final. We'll see what happens," ATK's Spanish recruit Arnal Llibert Conde Carbo told reporters on Thursday.
