Indian Super League 2018

Where: Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata
When: October 31, 07:30 PM, IST
Bengaluru FC are the most balanced team in the Indian Super League. They clearly had the best team last time out but lost the championship due to complacency. They have made some good buys in the off-season and with the likes of Sunil Chhetri along with Miku as attackers, they might become unstoppable. Coach Carles Cuadrat has only recently taken up the charge of this team and the fact that they are still performing at their max potential speaks volumes of how well the basics are instilled in the players.
However, their opponents ATK are on the same amount of points but have played two more games. After losing the first two matches of the tournament, manager Steve Coppell made some changes to the formations to shuffle the players to find the ideal formation. He has finally got it, and if this team is more consistent with the way they are playing it might help them in their chances of reaching the playoffs.

It is very easy to make a Fantain fantasy team, like any other fantasy team you get 100 salary points here from which you can select your desired players.
Here, only your skills for the game and how you invest your salary points will matter the most. Here you have a choice to select 3-5 Midfielders, 3-5 defenders, 1-3 Forwards and 1 Goalkeeper.
The best part of this app is you can select 3 substitutes from the two squads. If these players perform well on the pitch then their points will be multiplied by 0.5. Ergo, you will have three players who will be giving you more points and no salary points are required in selecting these substitutes.
Here is how you make your team:
Among the Midfielders, we have taken the likes of Komal Thatal and Manuel Lanzarote from ATK. The duo is playing really well together with the latter one of the best goal-scorers playing in the league.
From Bengaluru FC, we have taken Dimas Delgado Morgado and Kumam Udanta Singh. They are two players who are expected to not only marshall the middle of the pitch but also to create goals for their teammates.
While picking the defenders, we have taken John James Johnson and Aiborlang Khongjee from ATK. We have gone for the combination of a right-back who attack and a central defender who has the ability of scoring goals from the set-pieces.
From the visitors, Nishu Kumar and Albert Serran Polo have been included. A similar philosophy that is aforementioned is adopted here as well.
Forwards are the one who score the majority of the goals for the team, and we have selected one from either team in Fantain Fantasy Team.
No forward players are taken from the hosts as we needed to preserve our salary points.
Meanwhile, we have taken Sunil Chhetri and Nicolas Ladislao Fedor Flores a.k.a Miku. The pair of them have scored the majority of goals for the team in this season and we don’t see any changes taking place.
Since we can only choose one goalkeeper, we will be choosing Bengaluru FC’s Gurpreet Singh Sandhu. He is the best goalkeeper our country has ever produced and has done much better than Arindham from ATK.
After all this is done, you have to choose your captain and vice-captain whose points will be multiplied by 2 and 1.5 respectively.
The new feature in this app is selecting the substitutes. Here, you can select three players whom you have missed in your fantain fantasy team but you have an option to select them as substitutes and if they play and earn some points, those points will be multiplied by 0.5.
In this category, we are going with Everton Leandro dos Santos Pinto, Balwant Singh and Kalu Uche.
So, here’s our Fantain fantasy team.
Please note: The team we have provided here is based on our analysis and understanding. You can go with the same team or you can choose your own.
