ISL 2019-20: ATK vs Jamshedpur FC: Preview, Dream 11, Fantasy tips, Probable XI, TV info

Kolkata, November 8: ATK and Jamshedpur FC will be looking to build on their strong starts to the Hero Indian Super League season when they face off at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here on Saturday (November 9).

The teams find themselves in the top four with Jamshedpur third with seven points from three games while ATK are a spot below with six points from as many games.

Two-time ISL winners, ATK, bounced back from their opening match loss against Kerala Blasters FC and are enjoying their second-best start to an ISL season. Jamshedpur FC, unbeaten in the league so far, have made their best-ever start in what is their third ISL season.

While ATK have conceded only two goals so far, their attack has been on fire. Led by David Williams who has grabbed the limelight with three goals so far and supported by Roy Krishna, ATK's attack has accounted for seven goals so far, a club record at this stage.

"We have to respect every team now. I think Jamshedpur are a good side and have a good coach also. We have to play against Jamshedpur very carefully. We can't target any particular player for them," said ATK coach Antonio Habas.

The striking feature for ATK has been their tactical flexibility. After an attacking display against Hyderabad FC at home which they won 5-0, Antonio Habas' side showed defensive discipline in their 1-0 win over Chennaiyin, away from home.

"Football is about attacking and defending. Maybe it (Chennaiyin match) wasn't the best match for ATK, but we won the match. Sometimes it's less important to play well and win the match," said Habas.

The pace and clinical nature of their attack, which is supported by the likes of Javier Hernandez and Michael Soosairaj, has the ability to hurt any team. Jamshedpur FC will be aware of that particular danger and will count on their defence to deal with the threat.

Antonio Iriondo's team loves to get on the ball, with the likes of Piti and Aitor Monroy controlling the game from midfield. Jamshedpur themselves have an in-form striker in Sergio Castel. The 24-year-old has impressed already and will look to continue his good start to life in the ISL.

"We know we're playing against a great team. It's a very serious team and when I say serious, it's like they know the way they want to win. They have a lot of quality in their team. I know their coach and it's a team that gets into crazy matches who love to attack through," said the Jamshedpur coach.

While Jamshedpur FC's foreign players have impressed, their Indian players have not been far behind. The likes of Farukh Choudhary and Aniket Jadhav carry a goal threat too for Jamshedpur.

While Jamshedpur can be expected to have more of the ball, both teams are strong in attack. And they have some brilliant individual players at their disposal. The signs point towards a match that should see a fair amount of goals.

Probable XI:

ATK: Anas Edathodika, Pritam Kotal, Agus, Pronay Halder, Carl McHugh, Javi Hernandez, Michael Soosairaj, Prabir Das, David Williams, Roy Krishna Striker

Jamshedpur FC: Subrata Paul, Mobashir Rahman, Tiri, Robin Gurung, Bikash Jairu, Aitor Monroy, Piti, Memo, Sergio Castel, Aniket Jadhav, Farukh Choudhary.

Match Details:

Jamshedpur FC vs ATK FC match will kick off at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, Kolkata on Saturday (November 9) at 7:30pm IST. Live on Star Sports Network and Live Streaming on Hotstar.
