ISL 2020-21 Clash of Kings-Sunil Chhetri vs Roy Krishna: Two of the in-form teams of the Indian Super League (ISL) season 7 are set to clash on Monday in the ATK Mohun Bagan vs Bengaluru FC at Fatorda Stadium.
While ATKMB boast a strong attacking line-up, they have even better defensive stats. However, Bengaluru’s figures are not bad either. They are yet to taste a defeat in the campaign. This showdown promises to be even more captivating than usual with both teams flying high and currently in top four positions. ATKMB coach Antonio Habas, aware of the challenge that awaits for his side, has his sights set on nothing less than three points.
“I think it is impossible to win every match. The teams are more balanced and it is very difficult for all teams to keep on winning three points. The idea in football is to get three points. I cannot play thinking about the possibility of drawing or losing,” Habas said in a statement.
ATKMB’s defenders have the most number of tackles in the league (233) and have also made the second-most clearances in the league (182). “The idea is marking in the zone and closing down the spaces. You need space for crosses and to create moves. The idea is that the opponent does not find any space to attack,” said Habas.
