It’s the battle between two time champions ATK who would take on Mumbai City FC at the Mumbai Football Arena tonight. Both the sides have had some memorable previous fixtures not to forget the semi final between both the teams in ISL 2016. Midway through the new season both teams will battle it out to get all three points. Both teams have big names in their teams and it will be interesting to see who wins it for their side.
Both teams are currently at the playoffs position and will look to maintain their good form. We have churned out five such names from the two squads which we think can change the course of the match.
Modou Sougou (MCFC )-
With Paulo Machado injured for the rest of the season,cresponsibilities and hopes are quite high now on their leading goals scorer in ISL. Sougou has been brilliant in the last few games and has created many chances inside the penalty box with his quick runs. He can be a constant threat to ATK’s defence and will look to get into the score sheet in back to
Diego Carlos ( MCFC) –
With a goal and assist so far Carlos had a pretty much moderate season till now but
after Machado’s injury we can expect Carlos to start and pair up with Sougou and get some
goals for Mumbai City FC. It will be interesting to see how these two will take on ATK’s defence in this home fixture.
Roy Krishna (ATK ) –
The leading goal scorer currently in the ISL, Roy Krishna has been in lethal form so far this season with 8 goals and an assist he has brought the spark that ATK was looking for in the previous two editions of the hero ISL. Jorge Costa knows how big a threat he can be and they will definitely have a plan to stop him.
David Williams (ATK) –
Williams and Roy Krishna together are turning out to be a lethal pair this season. With
five goals and two assists he has shown us why he was rated so high before the start of the tournament and with crucial goals in crucial games one can expect another good performance against Mumbai City FC.
Subashish Bose (MCFC)-
Bose has been in good touch and has been rock solid in the defence for Mumbai
City FC this season. Also he has scored once and assisted one is well. He is someone who is getting a lot of appreciation from the coach Jorge Costa. Against an attacking opponent like ATK, Subhashish will have to play an important role in this fixture for Mumbai City FC.
