ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) take on SC East Bengal (SCEB) in match 75 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the Pandit Jawaharlal Stadium in Fatorda, Goa on Saturday, January 29. The match will begin at 7.30 PM IST.
ATKMB vs SCEB Dream11 prediction
Despite back-to-back draws, ATK Mohun Bagan have seen a change in form since Juan Ferrando took over the managerial reins from compatriot Antonio Habas. The Mariners, currently eighth on the points table, are favourites to win the latest edition of the Kolkata derby given they are on a three-match winning run against SCEB in the ISL.
East Bengal, on the other hand, are languishing at the bottom of the ISL standings with just one win in 13 games. The Red and Gold Brigade were humbled by league leaders Hyderabad FC in their last outing - their sixth loss this term - but will be eager to put on a spirited show against local rivals ATKMB in what promises to be a Saturday night box office fixture.
ATKMB vs SCEB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
ATKMB’s Roy Krishna should be the outright pick for the striker spot in your fantasy team. The Fiji forward has registered four goals and four assists this season, earning him 417 fantasy points. At 10 credits, Krishna is a tad expensive but makes for a smart addition to your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best midfielder
There is no denying how important Hugo Boumous has been for ATK Mohun Bagan in ISL 2021-22. The former FC Goa and Mumbai City FC midfielder has registered five goals and three assists in just nine games, thus making him the one player to definitely include in your fantasy team. The ATKMB star has 522 fantasy points - most among any player in this fixture - and is likely to notch some more against East Bengal on Saturday.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Pritam Kotal of ATKMB has been selected by 88.6 per cent of fantasy players having accumulated 352 points so far. Besides his defensive duties, the 28-year-old defender has contributed one goal as well as an assist and makes for a reliable addition to your fantasy team.
ATKMB’s Amrinder Singh should be the obvious goalkeeping pick for this clash. Amrinder will probably keep a clean sheet with a solid Mariners defence of late and is likely to have a quieter outing in between the sticks than his opposite number.
ATKMB vs SCEB probable playing XI
ATKMB playing XI (probable): Amrinder Singh (goalkeeper), Ashutosh Mehta, Pritam Kotal, Tiri, Subhasish Bose, Carl McHugh, Deepak Tangri, Manvir Singh, Roy Krishna (captain), Liston Colaco, David Williams
SCEB playing XI (probable): Arindam Bhattacharja (captain and goalkeeper), Adil Khan, Franjo Prce, Ankit Mukherjee, Amarjit Kiyam, Darren Sidoel, Sourav Das, Mohammad Rafique, Naorem Singh, Antonio Perosevic, Thongkhosiem Haokip
