Match 37 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season will see NorthEast United (NEUFC) pitting against ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) at Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa on Tuesday, December 21. The Matchday 8 fixture will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
NEUFC vs ATKMB Dream11 prediction
Considered as title favourites, ATK Mohun Bagan have struggled big-time this season. The Mariners have recorded a mere two victories in six outings while conceding a whopping 13 goals. The figure is extremely unlikely for a team that had the best defensive record last season.
For NUEFC, the fact that they are coming off an inspiring win over East Bengal should give them the much-needed momentum. On the other hand though, their struggle in front of goal has been quite evident as well as the Highlanders have netted a mere eight goals in seven matches.
ATKMB may have struggled this season, but we expect Monday’s game to end in their favour as they have enjoyed the upper hand in terms of their head-to-head record against NorthEast United. In a total of four meetings between the two sides, ATKMB have recorded two wins and have lost just once.
NEUFC vs ATKMB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
With 296 points, ATKMB forward Roy Krishna is not only the highest-scoring striker but is also the most picked player for this match. The Fiji international has netted three goals so far and has made it to the Dream Team in four of his six outings. At 10.5 credits, he is indeed the most expensive outlay, but a worthy one to say the very least.
Top tip: Best midfielder
NUEFC midfielder VP Suhair has been a treat for the fantasy managers. In seven matches, the 29-year-old has accumulated 345 fantasy points which is the most by any player involved in this fixture. With 180 points coming in his last three outings, Suhair remains a strong recommendation.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
ATKMB defender Pritam Kotal was selected in the Dream Team in each of his first five matches. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the 28-year-old has been selected by 93.25 per cent of fantasy users, making him the most picked defender for this fixture.
For a goalkeeper, ATKMB’s Amrinder Singh should be a preferred choice given the fact that his team is likely to keep a clean sheet. Amrinder hasn’t been at his best this season, but has managed to get into the Dream Team in four of his six matches.
NEUFC vs ATKMB probable playing XI
NEUFC playing XI (probable): Subhasish Roy (captain and goalkeeper), Provat Lakra, Hernán Santana, Patrick Flottmann, Gurjinder Kumar, Sehnaj Singh, Khassa Camara, Mathias Coureur, Rochharzela, Lalkhawpuimawia, V.P. Suhair
ATKMB playing XI (probable): Amrinder Singh (goalkeeper); Pritam Kotal, Carl McHugh, Subashish Bose; Manvir Singh, Lenny Rodrigues, Deepak Tangri, Joni Kauko, Liston Colaco; Hugo Boumous, Roy Krishna (captain)
