KBFC vs ATKMB Dream11 prediction
Kerala Blasters and ATK Mohun Bagan cross swords for the first time since the opening game of ISL 2021-22, where KBFC lost 0-1.

ATKMB, meanwhile, will play their first game in two weeks after their last two games were postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in their camp. The Mariners themselves are on a five-game unbeaten run and will fancy their chances against Kerala.

KBFC vs ATKMB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Roy Krishna starts as the top forward for the KBFC vs ATKMB match with 403 fantasy points to his name. The Fiji forward has four goals so far and will look to please the 83.58 per cent of fantasy players who have chosen him with a convincing display against Kerala Blasters. Krishna’s lone strike won the reverse fixture for ATK Mohun Bagan earlier this term, and he will look to trouble the Kerala defence once again.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Be it scoring or providing assists, Hugo Boumous has continuously demonstrated why he is one of the best talents in the ISL over the last few seasons. The French attacking midfielder has been involved in eight goals in nine games for ATKMB - five goals and three assists - and will be looking to continue his fine form against a Kerala team that has conceded 10 goals so far - the least in ISL 2021-22.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
ATKMB captain Pritam Kotal will be under pressure against Alvaro Vazquez’s goal-scoring guile, but fantasy players can be assured of a solid showing by drafting in the experienced India international who can be a potential differential in terms of point scoring. Kotal, who has registered 40 clearances and 26 interceptions this season, has the tools to effectively shut down the looming threat of KBFC’s attackers. Pritam Kotal will also look to improve his fantasy points count of 307 and is capable of contributing offensively having already notched a goal and an assist this season.
KBFC’s Prabhsukhan Singh stands out as a better goalkeeping choice for fantasy players. The 21-year-old custodian has conceded five times and kept four clean sheets in seven appearances this season, while registering 22 saves. Prabhsukhan’s 207 fantasy points haul is way ahead of his opposite number Amrinder Singh (170).
