Goals from Roy Krishna and Subhasish Bose got ATK Mohun Bagan to a winning start as they inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Bengaluru FC in the opening game of 2021 AFC Cup Group D.

ATKMB found their opener on 39 minutes as Krishna headed home from close range after Bose had headed goalwards from a Hugo Boumous corner.

The ISL Season 7 finalists doubled their lead a minute into the second-half as Bose, who had provided the assist for the first goal, curled the ball past Gurpreet Sandhu.

Despite dominating the possession, Bengaluru FC could not claw their way back into the game as ATKMB kick-started their 2021 AFC Cup campaign with a win over their ISL rivals.

Here's how Twitter reacted to ATKMB's victory and Bengaluru FC's defeat.

Bose, who scored the second goal of the match, was quite impressive for ATK Mohun Bagan.
