ATK Mohun Bagan vs Kerala Blasters: Team news & key stats

Like last season, ATK Mohun Bagan will be entering the tournament opener without playing any pre-season friendlies against their ISL counterparts. They did however participate in the 2021 AFC Cup in August and September where they fell short against Uzbekistan’s FC Nasaf in the Inter-Zone Semi-finals

The Kolkatan giants will once again depend on the front pair of Roy Krishna and David Williams for the goals after further strengthening their unit with the likes of Hugo Boumous and Joni Kauko in midfield.

With players like Alvaro Vazuez, Jorge Pereira Diaz, Enes Sipovic and Chencho Gyeitshen in the side, Kerala Blasters will be hoping for a better campaign this time around.
