ATKMB vs KBFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
ATKMB forward Roy Krishna has to be your first choice pick. The 34-year-old Fiji international has been picked by a whopping 95.31 per cent of fantasy users for this match and it’s easy to understand why when you realize that he’s found the back of the net 29 times in the last two ISL seasons besides also providing 14 assists.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Selected by 91.24 per cent of fantasy users, ATKMB’s new signing Hugo Boumous is certain to play a big role in this match. The Frenchman was instrumental for Mumbai City FC in their title-winning season last term and he will be looking to make a similar impact for his new team. A playmaker in the truest sense of the term, Boumous has scored 19 times and provided 24 assists over the years in the ISL.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Versatile defender Pritam Kotal, who has been named as one of ATKMB’s three captains for the new season, will be a defender to keep an eye on. Primarily a right-back, the 28-year-old has also been used as a centre-half and thus it comes as no surprise that 79.72 per cent of fantasy users have decided to add him to their team considering ATKMB register are likely to register more clean sheets than other sides. Kotal will also be an aerial threat during attacking set-pieces.
For a goalkeeper, we recommend you to go with KBFC’s Albino Gomes. ATKMB are rightly expected to trouble the KBFC defence, meaning that Gomes will be called into action on several occasions. While Amrinder Singh is more likely to keep a clean sheet, he won’t be tested as much as Albino, making the Kerala custodian a smart pick for fantasy players who like to earn their points through goalkeeping heroics.
