Atletico De Kolkata

Debjit (GK), Keegan, Figueras, Thomas, Mehta, Bipin, Taylor, Caldeira, Rane, Paterson, Robin

Expected Winner:

Our bet is on the away team for this game since they have won their last two games in this edition of ISL and for the home team the pressure is building because they have lost four matches in a row and even in their home ground with their fans screaming their names they would be in tremendous pressure and to register a win in this match would become a herculean task for them. If the home team is aiming for 27 points in this edition of ISL to qualify for the playoffs, they have to win the four of their remaining five matches so that’s a big if given their current condition.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
