The final league stage game of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season will see ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) going head to head with league leaders Jamshedpur FC (JFC) at Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa on Monday, March 7. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
ATKMB vs JFC Dream11 prediction
Since merging with Mohun Bagan in 2020, ATKMB have played three ISL matches against Jamshedpur FC, losing two and winning one. Interestingly, the Red Miners have scored two goals in each of their last two meetings against the Mariners while winning on both occasions.
As far as the current season is concerned, the two teams have already qualified for the play-offs and even a win on Monday wouldn’t take ATKMB above the top-placed JFC. While they will be level on points, the latter will have the edge due to superior goal difference.
Hence, we expect this game to end in a draw.
ATKMB vs JFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
JFC frontman Greg Stewart is an outright pick for this position. The former Dundee striker has scored 10 goals coupled with as many assists, resulting in a total of 1,214 fantasy points. What makes Stewart a top pick for his contest is the fact that he has made it to the Dream Team in each of his last five outings.
Top tip: Best midfielder
In a team full of stars, a certain Joni Kauko of ATKMB has done a commendable job, to say the very least. The 31-year-old midfielder has accrued 650 fantasy points this season while making it to the Dream Team in five of his last seven outings. He might as well prove out to be the differential.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Demoted to the bench against Odisha, JFC captain Peter Hartley will return to the starting XI on Monday, making him a must-have player for this contest. The veteran defender has been a phenomenal presence for this team this season, scoring three goals while accumulating 545 fantasy points. He remains a strong recommendation for this contest.
For the goalkeeper spot, ATKMB custodian Amrinder Singh would be our preferred choice since he has enjoyed a better run of form than Jamshedpur FC’s TP Rehenesh.
ATKMB vs JFC probable playing XI
ATKMB playing XI (probable): Amrinder Singh (goalkeeper); Pritam Kotal (captain), Sandesh Jhingan, Tiri, Subhasish Bose; Joni Kauko, Carl McHugh, Hugo Boumous; Liston Colaco, Manvir Singh, Roy Krishna
