ATK Vs KBFC Dream 11 Prediction: ATK Vs Kerala Blasters Best Dream 11 team for Indian Super League 2019-20. Kerala Blasters look to drive confidence from their rampant win the last time around.
For Kerala Blasters, their 5-1 routing of Hyderabad the last time around could either end up being a defining moment in the league or a one-off result. The win was only their second in the league but the profound and pulsating manner in which it came about is bound to propel the outfit ahead of today’s imminent outing.
Currently in 8th spot in the points tally of the Indian Super League, Kerala Blasters know they can’t afford to repeat the same mistakes which see them in such a contentious position. Although they are still quite some distance of making it into the top 4, the side will be well aware that a couple of fruitful results will bring them right back in the reckoning for a spot in the revered slots.
“We are the only team with seven foreigners and out of them, six have been. We have struggled with our defence. In the midfield also we have had to make constant changes. I have not been able to field the same XI in two successive games,” said Kerala Blasters’ manager Schattorie when discussing his side’s predicament this term.
Things are by no means going to be straightforward for them though come today’s tie with the unit facing off against a team placed in third place. ATK are coming into the clash with a 2-0 win over Mumbai City the last time around, a result which saw them accumulate 21 points from 11 encounters in the league.
Kerala Blasters got a massive shot in the arm the last time around with a comprehensive win but the side will find it extremely treacherous to emulate the same performance. Their defence continues to remain a massive plight for the club, a peril which should see them revert back to losing ways come today.

Dream 11 Picks
Having let in the 15 goals all season, Kerala Blasters look extremely unlikely to pull off a cleansheet to their name today. However, in TP Rehenesh, they have a goal-keeper capable of pulling off some articulate saves to see us make him our choice for the day.
ATK have let in 9 goals all season, a defence which has served the side fruitfully in flourishing in the league this term. They look extremely likely to pull off a cleansheet to their name today as well despite Kerala Blasters having scored five goals in their bygone outing.
It sees us go in with a duo of picks from ATK for the encounter with both Augustin Garcia-Iniguez and P. Das making an advent into our framework of the outing. Elsewhere, we have the singular name find its way into our side from the opposition as well with Gianni Zuiverloon being picked up by us for the day.
With three goals for himself this season, we begin with Edu Garcia in this ambit of our Dream 11 side. The player has been lauded for his ability to leave defences perplexed and in angst with his tenacity and titillating brand of football set to yield atleast the one goal or assist for his side today.
We have the two more names being inducted form the side in the identity of Francisco Javi-Hernandez and Soosairaj. It’s all down to Kerala Blasters’ stinker of a defence, one these radiant players will find way to easy to leave disgruntled on the day.
The one name comes into our side from Kerala Blasters as well with us deciding to go in with Mouhamadou Moustapha Gning from the side for the day.
The first man we have in the side is Roy Krishna due to his 8 goals and 2 assists.David Williams featured only as a subtitle for his side the last time around but with 6 goals in his kitty, he’s a must have pick for the day. Elsewhere, Kerala Blasters find representation in the identity of an indomitable attacking duo, on which has provided unstinted attacking support to the side to see them rake up the 15 goals this season.
We begin with the side’s top scorer with the 6 goals, Bartholomew Ogbeche being brought in by us for the contest.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Roy Krishna comes out to be our captain while Ogbeche is our vice-captain.
