One has to remember that Hero ISL is a marathon, not a sprint. So, even with a really poor outcome so far, there is nothing to feel demotivated by. Here are our tips in order to help make those difficult decisions a little easier!
Today, we have an exciting match coming in front of us in Hero ISL. It is defending champions ATK Mohun Bagan taking on the semi-finalists of last season FC Goa.
ATK Mohun Bagan started their campaign with 3 wins in a row, but then lost a track little bit as they lost against Jamshedpur FC and drew against Hyderabad FC.
On the other hand, FC Goa has the exact mirror results compared to their opponent for today. Goa started the season with a draw and a defeat but has now three wins in a row. It would be interesting to see who will take the three vital points today or will they share the points.
Now, let's take a look at the Fisto's Fantasy 11 Team and tips for today's match
Arindam Bhattacharya (ATKMB): FC Goa had astonishingly 10 shots on target against Odisha FC and is more likely to do the same against ATKMB today. Although they may not take 10 shots on target, we still predict they will effect more shots on target compared to their opponents.
Ivan Garrido (FCG): He has never put a foot wrong so far in this year's Hero ISL. His clearances, interceptions and tackles are all top notch.
Savior Gama (FCG): One of the improved players for FC Goa this year. Playing at left back, he is so strong defensively and also creates glorious chances offensively. He has one assist to his name.
Tiri (ATKMB): The experienced centre-back has been phenomenal for the defending champions. He was rested in the last match, but we expect him to start tonight. He is also one of the set piece target for ATK Mohun Bagan.
Sandesh Jhingan (ATKMB): Just like Tiri, this experienced Indian national team centre-back has been fantastic at the back line for ATKMB so far. Another tall defender, so he is the set piece target for them as well.
Edu Bedia (FCG): He is the main architect for the men in orange. He works tirelessly and his presence in the midfield will help FC Goa in attacking transitions a well.
Carl McHugh (ATKMB): Another tall player in the ATK Mohun Bagan set up. He has been the key player to stop the counter attacks for ATKMB thus far. Played as a centre-back in the absence of Tiri last match, but we expect him to slot in back to his natural CDM position in today's match.
Jorge Ortiz Mendoza (FCG): He had taken 5 shots on target in their last match. Every time, he steps on to the ball, and runs across the defenders, it makes us think like he is going to score a Goal. Although he has only one goal to his name so far, he is taking at least 1 shot on target in every match.
Igor Angullo (FCG): The top-scorer of this year's ISL so far and he is a "No brainer" pick in any fantasy team. He is hungry for scoring goals and is threatening to score one, every time he has the ball.
Edu García (ATKMB): If he starts, then he is the set-piece taker for the men in maroon and green. He is always a threat to the opposition. There is a good amount of chance of him scoring or assisting in today's match.
Roy Krishna (ATKMB): Another Striker who is in the contention for the golden-boot this year. He has 4 goals in 5 matches so far. Definitely a top-pick for our team as well.
Captain / vice-captain selection for ATK Mohun Bagan: Edu Garcia, Roy Krishna, Tiri.
Captain / vice-captain selection for FC Goa: Igor Angullo, Edu Bedia, Ortiz Mendoza.
The team selection is based on some expected changes in the line ups from both the teams.
Note: The Fisto's Fantasy 11 is based on Predictions and analysis from the previous matches and Fisto Sports won't take any responsibility if the Selected team doesn't perform well. The Team Selection can vary depending upon the Starting 11 of the teams as well.
