An already eliminated Chennaiyin FC (CFC) side take on a confident ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) team in match 105 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the Fatorda Stadium in Margao on Thursday, March 3. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
CFC vs ATKMB Dream11 prediction
It goes without saying that Juan Ferrando’s ATK Mohun Bagan start as favourites on Thursday. The Mariners haven’t lost a game in almost three months and while consecutive draws against Odisha FC and Kerala Blasters put a dent in their pursuit for top spot in the standings, they returned to winning ways in their last outing against Bengaluru. Chennaiyin FC, meanwhile, have lost four of their last five fixtures and will have their task cut out against ATKMB.
The head-to-head between the two teams since ATK’s merger with Mohun Bagan gives the Mariners a narrow edge over Chennaiyin FC. The Kolkata giants have won one of their previous three meetings while two matches, including this season’s opener, have ended without a winner.
CFC vs ATKMB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
With Roy Krishna not really enjoying a great run of form, Liston Colaco becomes an automatic pick for a forward. The 23-year-old has netted eight goals in ISL 2021-22 which includes a solitary strike in a 1-1 draw against Chennaiyin when the two sides last met.
Top pick: Best midfielder
ATKMB’s Hugo Boumous did struggle with consistency midway through the season, but the French attacking midfielder is now back to his usual best, having made it to the Dream Team in two of his last three matches. The former Mumbai City FC star, who has five goals and five assists to his name this season, has accrued 712 fantasy points which is significantly more than any other midfielder involved in his game.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Given the current run of form, ATKMB defender Tiri makes for a smart pick for this position. The 30-year-old has totalled 430 fantasy points so far and has made it to the Dream Team in each of his last nine appearances.
Finally, for a goalkeeper, ATKMB’s Amrinder Singh will be the safest option to go with as the former MCFC custodian is more likely to keep a clean sheet.
CFC vs ATKMB probable playing XI
CFC playing XI (probable): Debjit Majumder (goalkeeper), Reagan Singh, Narayan Das, Slavko Damjanovic, Deepak Devrani, Ninthoinganba Meetel, Anirudh Thapa (captain), Ariel Borysiuk, Vladimir Koman, Nerijus Valskis, Rahim Ali
ATKMB playing XI (probable): Amrinder Singh (goalkeeper); Pritam Kotal (captain), Sandesh Jhingan, Tiri, Subhasish Bose; Carl McHugh, Lenny Rodrigues, Hugo Boumous; Liston Colaco, Ashutosh Mehta, Manvir Singh
