The seventh edition of Hero ISL (ISL 2020-210) is back with one of the biggest rivalries in Indian football will be the first sight of display in the top flight football competition in the country.
Both the sides have been sharing an intense history ever since the league started in 2014. Indeed both the regions are a hotbed of football, where football is followed passionately.
ATK is the most successful team in ISL along with Chennaiyin FC after they both won the tournament twice in the last 5 years. On the other hand, Kerala Blasters have been the most unlucky team in the tournament as they have not won the title even once although they reached into the finale twice.
Therefore, Kerala Blasters has decided to leave no stone unturned to have an overwhelming season in this edition of ISL. Especially, after last year, where they finished 9th in the league table.
So to return at the top Eelco Schattorie has taken charge of the squad, who had an impressive season with NorthEast United in the last edition. Whereas, ATK has made a total of 18 signings before the start of the season, in which India’s U-17 World Cup hero Dheeraj Singh is also included.

ISL 2020-21: KBFC vs ARK MB Prediction
ATK were champions of the 2020 ISL season and this new club will begin this new season as one of the favourites to win it all again. With the core overseas players of that title winning side retained alongside new additions such as Bradden Inman and centre-back Tiri, ATK Mohun Bagan are expected to mark their first ever league game with victory here. Having said that, they must be wary of Kerala’s attacking threat that includes new signing Gary Hooper and it would be no surprise to see the hosts find the net in this one.
