AFC Cup 2022 Match Preview – ATK Mohun Bagan Vs Basundhara Kings – Team News, H2H, Predictions, and More

-

Indian Super League (ISL) side ATK Mohun Bagan will look to get their Asian campaign back on track when they host Bangladeshi side, Bashundhara Kings in their second group stage game of the AFC Cup 2022 at the Salt Lake Stadium on Saturday, 21 May from 4:30 PM (IST) onwards.

ATK Mohun Bagan started their campaign in the worst possible way when they were shocked with a 4-2 scoreline by their fellow Indian side, Gokulam Kerala FC in what was a poor game by their high standards. Head coach, Juan Ferrando admitted that failure to take their chances cost them on the night and they have to win their remaining games if they are to maintain their hopes of qualifying for the inter-zone play-off semi-finals as only one team from Group D will make it to the next round.

IFTWC’S MATCH PREDICTIONS

The Mariners were handed a shocking 2-4 defeat by fellow Indian club Gokulam Kerala FC in the campaign opener, as their chances of qualifying for the next round is now hanging by a thread. Meanwhile, Bashundhara Kings edged past Maldives-based Maziya S&RC by a solitary goal to sparkle up their top-spot ambitions. A loss or even a draw for ATK Mohun Bagan is enough to draw curtains on their AFC Cup ambitions, which makes the upcoming match such a vital one. Especially, after the disappointing loss in the last match, Juan Ferrando’s boys are sure to pull their socks up and stage a fitting turnaround.

Going by the overall team strengths we feel ATK Mohun Bagan has a slide edge over Basundhara Kings despite the Bangladesh champions starting the AFC Cup campaign with a win and having high confidence. The Mariners need to go all out to have a chance of qualification to the next round. Despite a shaky defence in recent games where they have conceded many goals and also the injuries to key players like Tiri and Boumous, there is enough Arsenal with Juan Ferrando to power the team to their quest for the first win of the group stage.

IFTWC predicts a 2-1 win for ATK Mohun Bagan.
