BFC vs ATK Dream11 Prediction 2020 | Bengaluru FC vs ATK
The second semi-final of the Indian Super League (ISL) will see the defending champions Bengaluru FC welcome 2-time winners ATK at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru for the first leg. When these sides met during the league stages, ATK claimed a 1-0 victory followed by a 2-2 draw in the latter half of the season. Given the two sides’ attack prowess, Sunday’s fixture promises to be an entertaining encounter.
Bengaluru would be looking to leave their disappointing campaign in the AFC Cup behind when they face ATK. The Blues were knocked out of the AFC Cup qualifiers after Maziya FC went through on penalties winning 4-3. Bengaluru went down by a goal in the first leg. Deshorn Brown’s goal and Sunil Chhetri’s brace in the 2nd leg wasn’t enough as the Blues conceded 2 goals on the night which sent the match to penalties after extra time.
Although they had their own struggles in front of goal, Bengaluru have been phenomenal at the back. The reigning champions have let in just 13 goals this term, three less than their semi-final opponents ATK. The club also ranks No.1 in terms of clean sheets (10).
But can they stop ATK and the dangerous Roy Krishna on Sunday?
ATK have played some attractive brand of football this season. The team has scored the second-most number of goals this term (33). And the main man Roy Krishna’s form in front has been of essence here. The striker has scored 14 goals from eighteen matches at an average of 0.78 goals/game besides chipping in 5 assists.
The last time they met Bengaluru, ATK came back from a 2-goal deficit to earn a 2-2 draw. At that time, points were at stake. But now it will be the bragging rights to become the first team to win 3 ISL titles.
ATK will be ready to exploit Bengaluru’s lack of goal-scoring abilities by sitting deep and not allowing them to score any goals. This will enable them to take the game to the Salt Lake Stadium where they can put in a performance which would knock the Blues out.
