ATK vs Mumbai City FC, ISL 2019-20: Match Preview
Since the defeat to Kerala Blasters in the season opener, ATK have been a force to reckon with and won three straight matches before playing a goalless draw against Odisha FC in their last outing.
But, back in home for the Mumbai fixture, the Antonio Habas-coached team will be enjoying the local conditions and hoping to get back to the winning ways.
It has been a complete team performance from the Kolkata team. While their attacking prowess is on full show with 10 goals from 5 games, the defence has also been on the top of their game.
The backline, with Soosairaj and Prabir Das as wing-backs, has conceded only three goals this season. Only Bengaluru FFC have leaked lesser goals than ATK in the ongoing ISL.
Though Mumbai City FC found extra reasons to celebrate when the owners of Manchester City the City Football Group (CFG) bought the majority stake of their team, their on-field performance has been dismal this year.
Languishing at seventh, Jorge Costa’s men will be aiming to pay back to their new owners with some quality football for the huge amount of money that they will be spending on this team.
Since their win over Kerala Blasters in the opening game, Mumbai have picked up only two points in their next four games.
