New entrants Hyderabad FC will kick-off their ISL campaign by facing former two-time champions, ATK, in-game six of the new season.
ATK will want to shake off their opening day defeat to Kerala and would want to maximise their chances of bouncing back with a win through home advantage.
In terms of players filling in the squad for Hyderabad FC, most of them have come from FC Pune City, who made it to the semi-finals last season.
Date- Friday, October 25 | Kick-Off- 7:30 AM (IST) | Venue- Salt Lake Stadium
Antonio Lopez Habaz left out centre-half John Johnson for the first game against Kerala Blasters and could shuffle it up with either Agus Garcia or Carl McHugh at the back. Other than that, ATK should stick with a similar eleven which featured in the opening day. Arindam Bhattacharya would keep between the sticks, while Pritam Kotal, Agus Garcia, Carl McHugh and Pronay Halder form the defensive back four. Pronoy Halder, Sehnaj Singh, Javi Garcia and Michael Soosairaj would accommodate midfield. David Williams and Roy Krishna should lead the attack.
Hyderabad will be looking to come out with it’s strongest eleven for their first-ever game in the Indian Super League. Kamaljit Singh would be the No. 1 who guards the goal. Whereas, Asish Rai, Matthew Kilgallon, Rafa Lopez and Sahil Panwar would fill in as the back four. Adil Khan, Marko Stankovic, Marecelinho and Laldanmanwia Ralte could come in at midfield. Robin Singh would be leading the attack along with new addition to the league, Bobo.
ATK- Arindam Bhattacharya, Pritam Kotal, Agus Garcia, Carl McHugh, Prabir Das, Pronay Halder, Sehnaj Singh, Javi Garcia, Michael Soosairaj, David Williams, Roy Krishna
Hyderabad FC- Kamaljit Singh, Asish Rai, Matthew Kilgallon, Rafa Lopez, Sahil Panwar, Adil Khan, Marko Stankovic, Marcelinho, Laldanmawia Ralte, Bobo, Robin Singh
David Williams looked sharp for ATK in the first game but missed quite a few open chances. However, with Williams adapting to the ISL, there are chances of him getting on the scoresheet as the minutes run by.
Marcelinho had a terrific 2018-19 season for FC Pune City and ended up scoring eight goals in 17 games which includes a hat-trick against NorthEast United. The Brazillian will now be looking to contribute in a similar manner for his new franchise, Hyderabad FC.
