Hyderabad FC (HFC) lock horns with ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) in the first leg of the second semi-final of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Saturday, March 12. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
HFC vs ATKMB Dream11 prediction
ATK Mohun Bagan, as a new entity, has played a total of four ISL matches against Hyderabad FC, managing to pick a solitary win out of those. Interestingly, that’s the only victory any team has ever registered while playing one another as the remaining three matches have been drawn.
This season, their first meeting ended in a 2-2 draw while the second match saw Liston Colaco and Manvir Singh guiding their team to a crucial 2-1 win.
Before suffering their first loss in their final league stage game against Jamshedpur FC, ATKMB were on a 15-game unbeaten run. Hyderabad, on the other hand, finished their league stage campaign with a 2-1 win over Mumbai City FC after slumping to a 0-3 defeat against the Red Miners.
Since both teams have largely struggled for wins in this fixture in the past, we expect this game to end in a draw ahead of the all-important second leg.
HFC vs ATKMB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Rested by his manager for the final two league stage games, star forward and ISL’s all-time top score Bartholomew Ogbeche will return to HFC’s starting XI, hoping to make a strong impact in the first leg. The 37-year-old Nigerian has scored 17 goals so far, resulting in a tally of 1,113 fantasy points. His inclusion in your fantasy team for this contest is a no-brainer.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Now registered as a midfielder, ATKMB’s Liston Colaco is an outright pick for this spot. The 23-year-old was on the scoresheet the last time these two sides met and while he remains an expensive investment at 9.5 credits, the form he is in this season makes him an undroppable presence for this fixture.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
There’s absolutely no one better than Hyderabad FC’s Akash Mishra for the defender’s role. The 20-year-old young full-back, who has two goals and three assists this season, has so far accrued 749 fantasy points which is significantly more than any other defender involved in this fixture.
And for a goalkeeper, ATKMB’s Amrinder Singh is our preferred choice ahead of HFC’s Laxmikant Kattimani since the former has been in better form and there are high chances that his team might keep a clean sheet.
HFC vs ATKMB probable playing XI
HFC playing XI (probable): Laxmikant Kattimani (goalkeeper); Nim Dorjee Tamang, Chinglensana Singh, Juanan, Akash Mishra; Joao Victor (captain), Souvik Chakrabarti; Mohammad Yasir, Joel Chianese, Rohit Danu; Bartholomew Ogbeche
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
