ATK vs NEUFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
NorthEast United and ATK will be locking horns in a crunch Indian Super League match at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium (Sarusajai Stadium) in Guwahati, Assam, tomorrow on Saturday evening (IST).
NorthEast United missed out on a golden opportunity to top the regular season standings when they conceded a late goal against Bengaluru FC in the last match.
The Highlanders were at home and deservedly took the lead in the 2nd half through Federico Gallego’s deflected strike. The hosts had few more opportunities to kill the game but were wasteful. Soon after, the visitors took control of the game, however, the goal came only in the 92nd minute after Chencho Gyeltshen’s bicycle kick pierced United’s defence.
NorthEast United slipped to 3rd in the table after Mumbai City beat Chennaiyin FC yesterday. Eelco Schattorie’s men can go back to 2nd if they beat ATK in this home match.
Manager Steve Coppell has done a remarkable job with the team which started the season with two straight defeats against Kerala Blasters and NorthEast United.
Since then the two-time ISL champions have lost just once in the last eight games, winning four times and drawing the other three. No wonder, the team has a good position in the table and remain in contention to finish the regular season in the top-4.
If ATK win this match, they will be moving to fourth and within two points off 2nd placed Mumbai City. However, Goa will have two games in hand which they can win considering their form this season.
But this match is against NorthEast, a direct rival for the top-4, and that’s why the stakes are much higher than the normal three-points that a game offers.

ATK vs NEUFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Both the teams are in good form and so the players.
Gerson has been asked to play everywhere on the pitch, but the forward position. No, it’s not gonna happen but he is so versatile that he gives the team something extra in every match. While Johnson is like a wall for ATK, as are Grgic and Komorski for the Highlanders.
Leudo is like Busquets for NorthEast, breaking up the play and setting up the balls for the forwards, while teammate Gallego can pop up with the goals.
For striker positions, Ogbeche is a no-nonsence choice as is Everton Santos.
We have changed the formation, back to 3-5-2 with the midfielders expected to steal the show.
The forwards remain the same.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This game could define the season for ATK as a loss would leave them with some grounds to make in the later stages of the season.
But the two-time champions have been quite consistent and are playing good in the last few matches.
A draw is our call.
Prediction 2-0 (at least)
