ATK vs CFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The battle of the former champions will see Chennaiyin FC playing host to ATK in the Indian Super League match at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, in Chennai, tomorrow, on Sunday evening (IST).
The half of the season is gone, and you can conclude from the shape of the table that few teams are already out of the contention for the playoff spots.
Before drawing any conclusion about Chennaiyin FC and their chances to make the top-4, it would be wise to look at the last season’s final table.
Apart from Bengaluru FC who ran away with 40 points in the regular season, three teams finished within two points of each other, Chennai on 32 and Goa and Pune on 30 points each.
The reigning champions are now on 5 points, meaning they need to win all their matches to reach 29 points mark and hope that other teams drop points.
On current form, however, it doesn’t look like they can sustain a winning run till the end of the season. The Marina Arina sise has won just once this season, losing a whopping six times.
ATK started the season with two straight defeats, both at home against Kerala Blasters (0-2) and NorthEast United (0-1). If there were any doubts creeping in about the team’s potential than nothing could have been more clear after just two games.
But manager Steve Coppell did learn something early and made few changes in the 3rd match. Well, the availability of Kalu Uche could have been the reason, but change nonetheless. Like, for example, the position of Everton Santos who was moved a little bit behind in the midfield, and it worked.
Since then the two-time ISL champions have played seven games, winning three and losing only once and that too against Bengaluru which shouldn’t be a result mourning about this season.
This little good run has brought the team right into the contention for the playoffs as they are two points away from the Jamshedpur FC.

ATK vs CFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Considering the defence of Chennaiyin FC this season, we have gone with ATK goalie in both our team.
However, Jeje was good in the last match and looks all set to break his barren run in the ISL this season. Everton Santos is our captian, with Augusto playing as vice-captain from the midfield.
We have gone with the three attackers with Carlos Salom coming in as the 3rd, and he is also our vice-captain.
In the defence, Gerson is a must have as he can play either in the midfield or at the back. Johnson has been quite consistent for ATK this season.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Historically speaking, in any other seaosn, this game could have been carrying some wager on it, considering the profile of both the teams. But not for Chennai this time around but for ATK, this game may go a long way in deciding their final position in the table.
Since the away team is in some groove, we are backing them to get something out of this match.
