ATK Vs MCFC Dream11 Prediction: Rampant Mumbai City look to continue to make massive strides in the points tally
Unbeaten in their last six encounters in the Indian Super League, Mumbai City have been in electric form in the league off late. The recent set of results have seen the side make massive ascendancy in the league, finding themselves having propelled all the way into fourth spot with the 16 points from 10 encounters.
And when the team steps out to the middle today for their first clash of the new year, the side will be looking to emulate the same succulent touch which saw them emerge as firm contenders for the league title. They come into this one having sealed an elusive win at their home stadium with the last time around as they putdown Hyderabad 2-1.
Elsewhere, their opponents are currently occupying second place with the two points more than Mumbai. ATK managed to get the better of Bengaluru 1-0 the last time around to tally up the five wins from 10 matches, a result the side will be looking to consolidate on come na upbeat and stellar Mumbai unit today.
An encounter between two stalwarts, this encounter promises to be an edge of the seat thriller as either side looks to leave no stone unturned in a bid to amass the three points in their kitty. This will be a high scoring affair; one we see ending in a draw akin to the bygone encounter earlier in 2019 between these two.

Dream 11 Picks
His side had to massively thank Arminder Singh yet again for their win the last time around. The shot stopper was once again at the pinnacle of skill set, pulling off a slew of well worked out saves as he parried an onslaught on his goal to ensure Mumbai City kept Hyderabad down to just the one goal in that contest.
Although this is set to be an affair where either side are unsparing and ruthless in ther attacking sorties, if there is any side which looks capable of pulling off a cleansheet to their name, its ATK. They have conceded the nine goals this season, a relatively sound defence, one which sees us bring in a duo of picks from the side for this one.
Both Agustin Garcia-Iniguez and Salam Ranjan Singh will be finding a place in our side for the tie whilst from a leaky Mumbai City defence we are moving in with just the one name in the form of Mato Grgic.
Paulo’s injuries have dealt a major blow to Mumbai ahead of this imminent encounter, one which the side will need to compensate for come today’s encounter. And as they scour for attacking options to fill the gaping hole left by the player, the side will turn to Raynier Fernandes, a player who has shown his calibre and flair with some enterprising displays this season.
Elsewhere, with the opposition having scored 19 goals this term and with the side up against a side which has shipped the 17 goals in 10 matches, the side is set to score today. It sees us pick up a magnitude of names from the outfit, all picks who are set to leave Mumbai tottering today given their knowhow of succeeding in matches of this statue.
Edu Garcia looks likely to return to the side’s setup to see us go in with him for the day along with Fancisco Javi-Hernandez and Armando Sosa-Pena.
He had to endure a long and arduous wait to find his first goals in the league but for Modou Sougou, they couldn’t have come at a better time. He scored twice the last time around to see us make him our first pick from Mumbai along with Diego Carlos who was in vibrant touch the last time around.
Elsewhere, with the five goals to his name, David Williams becomes our lone pick from the opposing side to wrap up proceedings for this impending tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The best possible combination of Captain and Vice Captain would be D. Williams and M. Sougou.
