ATK vs Bengaluru FC

Indian Super League

Table toppers Bengaluru FC will look to keep clear at the top when they visit a struggling ATK tomorrow at the Salt Lake Stadium. With four defeats in their last five games, two time champions ATK, in their worst season ever, will be having a lot to sort out if they are to even pose any challenge to the title contenders. It will be an emotional match up for ATK coach Ashley Westwood, who will be facing the club he managed for two years of glory and success. Though on paper Bengaluru FC are looking to run away with it, ATK do have the firepower in their line up to turn it around.
