Match 63 of ISL 2017/2018 will see ATK take on Bengaluru FC. Bengaluru won their last match while ATK are coming into the match on a 3 game losing streak. Bengaluru will look for a win that maintains their top spot.

Goalkeepers:

Debjit: Debjit has blown hot and cold this season producing a superb performance in one match to making a silly error in the next. The ATK custodian has made 31 saves, the 3rd highest by a goalkeeper in ISL 2017/18.

Defenders:

John Johnson: The Middlesbrough academy graduate has excelled in the ISL, leading Bengaluru FC’s defense to success. In fact, he has been a big reason for Bengaluru’s fine defensive record so far. The 28-year old is dominant aerially which also makes him a threat in the box of the opposing defense.

Juanan: Juanan scored his first goal of ISL 2017/18 through a fine header. The Spanish defender has done his job well so far, impressing with his no-nonsense defending and tight man-marking. With ATK struggling offensively, Juanan has a good chance of scoring clean sheet points.

Prabir Das: The marauding right-back has impressed with his energy to run up and down the pitch. He has been mediocre defensively, as the 24-year old has attempted 26 tackles, joint most by an ATK defender. His tally of 14 interceptions is the most by an ATK player. With ATK possessing a strong defensive record, Prabir has a chance to earn clean sheet points.

Midfielders:

Ryan Taylor: The Englishman has impressed at the heart of midfield with his calmness on the ball and accompanying distribution. The 33-year old is dangerous with his set pieces. The former Newcastle player has also contributed defensively, making 15 tackles in 7 matches.

Dimas Delgado: Dimas Delgado has attempted 562 passes this season, the most by any Bengaluru midfielder. It is due to his perfect shielding that he allows the players ahead of him the freedom to move forward. He has managed an incredible pass average of 70.25/game, only Ahmed Jahouh (82.00) has managed more this season.

Edu Garcia: The Spaniard is the glue which holds Bengaluru FC’s attack together. He dictates Bengaluru FC’s attack with his vision and his ability to drift past challenges effortlessly. He was once again superb against NorthEast United, providing an assist and creating 5 chances, the most by a Bengaluru FC player. He has provided 5 assists so far, the most by a Bengaluru FC player.

Conor Thomas: The Englishman has perhaps been one of the best defensive midfielders of ISL 2017/18. He helps A.T.K take control of the match through his faultless distribution. The 23-year old has attempted 746 passes, the most by an ATK player. He has also helped defensively making 24 tackles so far, 2nd most by an ATK midfielder.

Forwards:

Sunil Chhetri: Chhetri has scored 8 goals so far and has scored the most goals by an Indian in an ISL campaign. The Indian national team captain is in fine form having scored 5 goals in the last 5 matches. With ATK’s defense struggling, Chhetri has a good chance to extend his tally.

Miku: Miku has been superb having scored 9 goals, the 2nd highest in ISL 2017/18. The Venezuelan’s deadly shooting can be highlighted by the fact that he has attempted 25 shots and an amazing 18 of them have been on target.

Udanta Singh: The speedy forward is a threat due to his direct running and dribbling ability. He has got into some dangerous positions so far but has failed to provide the finishing touch. He has provided 3 assists so far, only Edu Garcia has provided more assists for Bengaluru FC.
