A winless FC Pune City side visit the Salt Lake Stadium to take on a struggling ATK hoping to get their first win of the season.
ATK have managed to muster just 7 points from their 6 games so far this season. Their two wins have come against sides below them in the points table, Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC. They’ll be hoping to grab all three points against FC Pune City, as this will be their last fixture against a comparatively weaker side.
FC Pune City are still trying to figure out what is going wrong with them. Pradyum Reddy has tried almost everything he could but has still failed to garner the desired results. Against Chennaiyin, they were expected to end up with three points but four goals in 18 minutes from Chennaiyin destroyed those hopes completely. All what Reddy can expect now is his players to play with full commitment for the entire 90 minutes. If that happens, we well might get to see a surprising win for Pune finally.

ATK will host FC Pune City at the Salt Lake Stadium with kick-off scheduled at 7:30 PM IST on Saturday, November 10, 2018

India’s rising has ushered well and displayed some fabulous performances of late. With Everton Santos at the opposite end of the field, Komal Thatal will be an important asset for the fantasy players.
FC Pune City’s star striker who hasn’t yet clicked and has been pretty much a let down will hold the key again for Pune’s hopes. If Pune are to score, it has to be him in the setup.
FC Pune City enjoy a healthy record against ATK in the past losing just once in their last 8 encounters. Their squad on paper made them a pre-season contender,but performance wise, they’ve been a big let down. Keeping that record in mind, we expect the scoreline to read FC Pune City 2-1 ATK.
