ATK vs KBFC Dream11: Two-time champions ATL play host to Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League at Yuba Bharati Krirangan (Salt Lake Stadium) on Sunday evening. ATK are 3rd on the table and won the last twp games, while the Blasters are down at 8th and are fresh off snapping their eight-game winless run in the last game when they defeated Hyderabad 5-1 at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium last Sunday.
With just seven rounds of regular-season remaining, including this game, plenty is riding for both the teams in this game. ATK, though, are in a far better position at the moment and should qualify for the playoffs, barring some late collapse in results. The Blasters, on the other hand, can ill-afford any negative results now, considering they sit seven points adrift of the playoff positions.

ATK vs Kerala Blasters Team News:
ATK Team News: ATK head coach Antonio Lopez Habas said that star striker David Williams could miss the game against the Kerala Blasters due to an injury. It will be a significant blow if indeed Williams miss this game as his partnership with Roy Krishna contributing 13 of the 21 goals ATK has scored so far in the competition.
Lopez, however, looked rather calm about the situation concerning his star striker, “We don't know whether (David) Williams will play. We will decide before the match. But my idea of football is not dependent on individuals. I don't know what changes I will make.”
In addition, the home team could also miss the services of Pronay Halder after the Indian international hobbled off the pitch with an apparent hamstring injury against Mumbai City.
ATK key players:
Roy Krishna: 08 Goals.
David Williams: 06 Goals.
Edu Garcia: 03 Goals.
Michael Soosairaj: 02 Goals.
Kerala Blasters team news: The Blasters remain without Raju Gaikwad while Mario Arques, who sat out the 5-1 win over Hyderabad FC due to an injury, is a huge doubt. He will be assessed before the game.
Considering the last game was Kerala‘s first win since matchday week one, there is little chance that Eelco Schattorie tempts with the playing 11 that started against Hyderabad FC in the last game.
Kerala Blasters key players:
Bartholomew Ogbeche: 06 Goals.
Raphael Messi Bouli: 05 Goals.
Rahul Kannoly Praveen: 01 Goal.
