Hyderabad FC Preview
In order to advance to the championship game, Hyderabad FC would be looking to hold off ATK Mohun Bagan. It will be essential to accomplish this feat if they win the first leg at home.
Being able to go past the Mariners won’t be simple because they are a formidable group. Yet, the fact that the current champions are quite close to successfully defending their title will serve as inspiration for them.
Subhasish Bose of ATK Mohun Bagan will want to maintain a tight proximity to the winger who plays on the right flank. Going into the first leg of the semi-final, Mohammad Yasir has three goals and four assists this season.
ATK Mohun Bagan Preview
The expectations placed on ATK Mohun Bagan are very high. International and domestic superstars make up the group. In order to assuage his detractors as head coach, Juan Ferrando must perform this season if the team is to live up to expectations from the club’s supporters and win championships.
The Nizams knocked the Mariners out last season at the same stage and exacting revenge will be high on the priority list.
The game plan for ATK Mohun Bagan depends on Dimitri Petratos. With his versatility, he provides a wide range of alternatives. The striker is skilled at holding up play as a No.9, can harm the opponent with his set-piece deliveries, and has the finishing ability to score under pressure.
He has 20 games, 10 goals, 7 assists, and will pose a significant threat to Hyderabad FC’s defence. In order to reduce Petratos’ impact on the game, Manolo Marquez must plan his approach.
