With a win, ATK Mohun Bagan will try to climb into second place in the league standings of the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata.
With a win, ATK Mohun Bagan will try to climb into second place in the league standings. The Highlanders have not yet recorded their first win of the season, whereas the Mariners have not suffered a defeat since the opening matchweek of the season.
ATK Mohun Bagan’s most recent match, which was played against Mumbai City, featured a tense match that was decided by a goal scored in the final minute of play. The Mariners have been the most productive team in front of the net so far this season, as they have scored 10 goals in just four games, and nine of those goals have come from open play.
Because of his outstanding play in the middle of the field for the Mariners this season, Joni Kauko has made the joint-most successful tackles (11) in the league. Kauko not only scored in the most recent game, but he also did it in the game against the Highlanders that took place the year before.

Dimitri Petratos, a striker for the team, has maintained his position as the leader in the statistics for both goals and assists despite only playing in four games total. He has scored three goals and contributed four assists.
“The game we have tomorrow is really important since it will be played here at our stadium. According to Ferrando, we only had one or two days to prepare the players since we had to play on Sunday and then travel.
In total, we only had three days. He went on to say that given how close we are to the top of the standings, the game that we play tomorrow is of the utmost importance. “I cannot stress the significance of the following three things enough.”
NorthEast United were unsuccessful in their most recent match against Kerala Blasters and came away with no victories. The Highlanders have played five games so far this season; however, they have failed to score in four of those games.
They have only managed to score one goal this season while giving up the most goals (11) of any team in the Hero ISL. As a result of this, they achieved a first in ISL history by being the first team to go winless through its first five games.

After serving his sentence, Marco Balbul, the head coach of the squad, will return to the dugout in an effort to prevent the team from tying the record for the most straight ISL losses. It’s possible that Balbul would stick with his defensively-minded 5-3-2 formation against ATK Mohun Bagan’s strikers in an effort to slow them down.
“There is no way to hide the fact that the members of the club are dissatisfied with the results.” It is very irritating. We continue to have hope that things will get better if we put in a significant amount of effort.
“It is my responsibility to find solutions and make improvements to each and every part of this team,” said Balbul. “The majority of the games were played with a lineup that was roughly the same as before. Accidents were responsible for the creation of some of the new variations.
On the other hand, our performance up front needs to be more consistent, and our defence needs to be more aggressive. He went on to say that we are inspired to go to ATK in order to halt the current progression.
Six times, the two sides have faced off against one another. In comparison to the Mariners, who have four victories, the Highlanders have only one. The match took place in the semifinals of the Hero ISL 2020–21 playoffs, which NorthEast United ultimately lost to ATK Mohun Bagan on the road by a score of 3-2.
