The ATK vs KBFC match preview –

The premier football league of India makes its return as two-time champions ATK take on Kerala Blasters FC in the regular season on Friday. ATK have the evenest record of anyone in the entire league. The team has played 12 games where they have won 4, lost 4 and drawn 4. Coach Steve Coppell is still experimenting with these group of players. He will be looking to tinker with the squad for this game and see what works.

Meanwhile, Kerala Blasters FC are having one of the worst seasons in the history of their franchise. The team is currently in the 7th spot and has only been able to win a single game. The fact of the matter is, that they are a shadow of their former selves, and it has already resulted in their coach David James to be sacked. Drastic actions have to be taken in order to save the club from completely depleting or else this recuperation project will take a big chunk of time that Kerala Blasters FC can’t afford to lose.
