ATK Mohun Bagan suffered a heavy defeat in AFC Cup inter-zone semi-final as FC Nasaf registered a 6-0 win over the Indian Super League outfit.

Nasaf took the lead as early as the fourth minute, and ATKMB never found a way back into the game as the Uzbekistan side ran riot.

An own goal by Pritam Kotal in the fourth minute of the match handed Nasaf the lead before Husain Norchayev inflicted more misery on the three-time ISL champions with a hat-trick.

Norchayev doubled Nasaf's lead in the 18th minute, before doubling his own tally with another goal three minutes later, in the 21st minute. The 19-year-old bagged his third 10 minutes later to put Nasaf 4-0 ahead in the game.

Nasaf went into the break with an unassailable five goal lead after Oybek Bozorov found the back of the net on the stroke of half-time.

Only one goal was scored in the game after it restarted after the half-time break as Donier Narzullaev added to Nasaf's tally on 71 minutes.

Meanwhile, ATKMB could not even register a shot on target on a disappointing night for them as they were on the receiving end of a rout, which brought their 2021 AFC Cup campaign to a close.
