ATK vs FCPC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Pune City will be looking for their fourth consecutive win when they host ATK in the regular season Indian Super League match at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, in Balewadi, Mahalunge, Pune, on Sunday evening (IST).
There are still hopes for Pune City:
An outside chance of making into the post-season was enough to give hopes to Pune City’s hierarchy. This flickering light propelled the club into action, late in the season, as Phil Brown arrived in India to achieve the unexpected.
The hopes, which had been derailed, suffocated and sent over to the fringes of retirement, by too many negative and unexpected results, are still alive. But the margin of error is too small, and even the all-winning run to the end of the regular season may not be enough to guarantee a place amongst the top-4.
But the former Hull City manager must have read the contract many a time, and there must be something about “Building for the future” because the end of the season could be expedited with a draw. And a mere short-cameo couldn’t be the reason behind Phil’s decision to come to India.
Pune have four wins to show so far, and interestingly, all those wins have come in the last six games. At the moment, the Arjun Kapoor-owned team is at 7th on the table, a huge 10 points behind the playoff positions.
ATK: Can’t afford a negative result
The visitors have a more realistic chance of making into the post-season, having accumulated 20 points from 14 games.
The two-time ISL champions are 6th on the ISL table, just four points away from 4th placed NorthEast United. But Steve Coppell’s men have a gmae-in-hand which they must used to the maximum advanatge.

ATK vs FCPC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Pune City FANTASY PREDICTION:
It could be down to little margins in the end. The team with the fewest mistakes or showing good judgement in the final third will win, it’s as simple as that. But the confidence and little or no pressure to get the desired result gives a team, its players and the managers the freedom. This is the luxury FC Pune City have now.
The Punekars are favourites in this match.
