A struggling Odisha FC (OFC) side take on ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) in match 100 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco da Gama on Thursday, February 24. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
OFC vs ATKMB Dream11 prediction
It’s no secret that ATKMB are certain to start as favourites on Thursday. The Mariners are unbeaten in their last 12 games - six wins and six draws - and although their previous meeting against the Kalinga Warriors ended in a 0-0 draw, they are likely to come out on top this time around.
Their current form has seen the Mariners scoring at least two goals in four of their last five matches. Odisha, on the other hand, haven’t really managed to get a stable footing into matches of late with the team managing a solitary victory in their last five outings.
What further puts ATKMB in the driving seat is their superior head-to-head record against Odisha FC. Since their merger, ATK Mohun Bagan have played three matches against the Kalinga Warriors, winning two and drawing once.
OFC vs ATKMB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
While Odisha have struggled for results, the only positive for them this season has been Jonathas de Jesus. The 32-year-old Brazil native has scored five goals and provided an assist in his last six outings, accruing a total of 718 fantasy points this season. Given the form he is in, Jonathas remains one of the top picks for this position as he looks to build on his overall tally of eight goals and four assists this season.
Top tip: Best midfielder
ATKMB’s Hugo Boumous returned to the starting XI against Kerala Blasters and the Frenchman marked his comeback with a brilliant assist. While Odisha’s Javi Hernandez has been the most-picked player for this contest, our recommendation for midfield would be Boumous, who has five goals and five assists this season.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Having made it to the Dream Team in three of his last four outings, ATKMB’s Priam Kotal is a strong recommendation for this contest. The 28-year-old versatile defender, who has scored once and provided two assists in this campaign, has accrued 494 fantasy points which is the most among all defenders involved in his fixture.
For a goalkeeper, ATKMB’s Amrinder Singh is an outright pick, to say the least. The former Mumbai City FC custodian has tallied 379 fantasy points this season and what gives him an edge over his competitor is the fact that he is more likely to keep a clean sheet.
OFC vs ATKMB probable playing XI
OFC playing XI (probable): Kamaljit Singh (goalkeeper); Lalruatthara, Hector Ramirez (captain), Víctor Mongil, Sahil Panwar; Thoiba Singh Moirangthem, Isaac Vanmalsawma; Jerry Mawihmingthanga, Javi Hernández, Nanda Kumar, Jonathas de Jesus
