MCFC vs ATKMB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
In the absence of in-form Mumbai City FC striker Igor Angulo, ATKMB forward Roy Krishna will be a worthy fantasy pick for this clash. The 34-year-old Fiji international has scored four and provided four assists in 10 matches this season. Krishna has already amassed 417 fantasy points and will look to add more to his tally on Thursday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Mumbai City FC midfielder Ahmed Jahouh has been one of the standout players in the ongoing edition of ISL. The Moroccan footballer can control the game’s tempo from the midfield engine room and has registered three goals and six assists in 11 matches. Having accumulated 777 fantasy points this season, picking Jahouh in your fantasy team against ATK Mohun Bagan is a no-brainer.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Among the defenders, one must pick Mumbai City FC captain Mourtada Fall in your fantasy football team. The 34-year-old defender has made 19 interceptions and 49 clearances in 11 matches this season, adding to the two goals that he has scored so far. Fall will play an important role to stop the likes of Roy Krishna, Hugo Boumous and Liston Colaco.
Between the sticks, ATKMB’s Amrinder Singh will be the preferred choice over Mohammad Nawaz. The Indian football team custodian has kept two clean sheets this term and will have the opportunity to garner more fantasy points through his saves on Thursday.
