ATK vs MCFC Dream11 Prediction | Atletico De Kolkata vs Mumbai City Football Club ISL Match Preview | Team News & Fantasy Team
Mumbai City have travelled to Kolkata in their pursuit of cementing their place to the playoffs in the ISL 2018-19. ATK, on the other hand, have nothing to play for – but their pride and getting as many points as possible in this year’s campaign.
Venue – Yuba Bharati Krirangan (Salt Lake Stadium), Kolkata
Date & Time – 22nd Feb | 07:30 PM IST
The visitors Mumbai City find themselves in a delicate position going into the 17th match of their ISL season. Jorge Costa’s men, who currently sit in 4th place, are on the cusp of making the top 4 but any slipups could jeopardize their hopes. The Kolkata franchise team, however, have no such motivation as they are already out of the reckoning.
There was a time when Mumbai City Football club were flying in the ISL. Midway into their season, the Mumbaikars were among the best teams in the country, however, a string of recent losses meant they have slipped down the ladder. Mumbai have lost 3 consecutive games to somewhat hamper their hopes of a top 4 finish.
Mumbai City have 27 points from 16 games so far and their nearest rival, Jamshedpur, is on 23 points from the same number of games. Even though they aren’t in immediate danger, the Islanders can’t afford the unnecessary risk. They would very much take a very boring and the safest way to make the playoffs.
There will not be lofty expectations from the hosts as they are already out of the race to playoffs. ATK stated the campaign in a steady manner, but the goals dried up soon after that. The home team has the least amount of goals(15) in the league this season. It’s evident that the club needs a new strategy and fresh energy before coming back strongly next season.
A lack of motivation could be reflected in ATK’s game again, who lost 3-0 in their last match against FC Goa. For them, the season end couldn’t come any sooner.
