ATK vs JFC Dream11 Match Prediction: ATK will play hosts to Jamshedpur FC for a weekend fixture as both sides have done considerably well in the season so far.
Antonio Irondo’s Jamshedpur FC with seven points currently occupies the third spot and is a point away from FC Goa who resides at the top. Meanwhile, Antonio Lopez Habas’ ATK comes in at fourth with six points and are on the back of two consecutive wins against Hyderabad and Chennaiyin FC.
The only slump which ATK has seen was in the opening game against Kerala Blasters as they lost 2-1 in Kochi. Jamshedpur FC on the other end is yet to be defeated this season. Their first two games against Odisha and Hyderabad resulted in wins, whereas their most recent game against defending champions, Bengaluru FC was a draw.
Date- Saturday, November 9 | Kick-Off- 7:30 PM (IST) | Venue- Salt Lake Stadium
Antonio Lopez Habas doesn’t have any such injury concerns ahead of the big game on Saturday. The manager won’t tamper much with the team as they look to register their third successive win on the road. Players such as John Johnson, Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem and Edu Garcia could come off the bench to change the dynamics of the match.
David Williams and Roy Krishna are expected to pair up and lead the attack yet again, while midfield of Halder, McHugh and Hernandez play their part.
The good news for Jamshedpur FC is that CK Vineeth is fit and rearing to go against ATK, in what shall be his first game this season. Keegan Pereira and Bikash Jairu will be battling for a spot at the left-back region. Narender Gehlot and Jitendra Singh are likely to remain on the bench as Mobashir Rahman and Robin Gurung’s consistent performance makes them vital in defence.
