KOLKATA: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is still hopeful of a positive result from defending champions Atletico de Kolkata who are on the brink of exit after their 0-3 loss to Chennaiyin FC in the first-leg semifinal of the Indian Super League.

“It’s tough but that’s the way it is. This team has in the past scored four goals. It will do even if it’s 3-0... then it will go to shootout,” the ATK co-owner told reporters.

In their home leg of the semis, ATK face Chennaiyin at the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan on Wednesday and Ganguly admitted that the had a poor outing in Pune where the first leg was held. “You don’t always become champions. Even Germany and Brazil are good teams but do they win the World Cup always? We have not played well.”
