ISL 2021-22 LIVE Chennaiyin FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan: When and where to watch; predicted xi; match updates

Welcome to Sportstar’s live coverage of this evening’s Chennaiyin FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan Indian Super League (ISL 2021-22) clash being played at the Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa.  This is Aneesh Dey bringing you the pre-match buildup minute-by-minute updates of this high-voltage clash.

6:00 pm: Our predicted xi for tonight’s match!

Chennaiyin FC Predicted XI: Debjit Majumder (GK), Ariel Borysiuk, Slavko Damjanovic, Narayan Das, Jerry Lalrinzuala, Anirudh Thapa (C), Germanpreet Singh, Ninthoinganba Meetel, Edwin Vanspaul, Mirlan Murzaev and Nerijus Valskis.

ATK Mohun Bagan Predicted XI: Amrinder Singh (GK), Pritam Kotal, Sandesh Jhingan, Tiri, Subhasish Bose, Joni Kauko, Deepak Tangri, Manvir Singh, Roy Krishna, Liston Colaco and David Williams.

5:45 pm: Head-to-head record of both teams!

The two sides have shared the field thrice, with ATK Mohun Bagan winning once while the rest of the matches have been draws, including the 1-1 draw in Match 25 earlier this season, meaning Chennaiyin FC is winless against the Mariners.


ATK Mohun Bagan will be looking to extend its winning run and secure its second successive semifinal berth since joining the Indian Super League (ISL 2021-22) when it takes on Chennaiyin FC at Fatorda on Thursday.

A win will also see ATKMB, which regained its winning touch after successive draws in the previous match against Bengaluru FC, close the gap on the top and improve its chances of claiming the maiden League Winner’s Shield.

The Kolkata giant has made great progress under Spanish coach Juan Ferrando and is unbeaten in 14 games, which is the second longest unbeaten run in the ISL. ATK Mohun Bagan is currently placed third with 34 points from 18 games and has a chance to close in on current table-topper Jamshedpur FC (37 from 18) and second-placed Hyderabad FC (35 from 19). A point from the next match against eighth-placed Chennaiyin FC will be enough to see ATKMB through the play-offs but it needs more than a draw to keep the hopes of winning the League Shield alive.

Ferrando has been troubled by recurrent injuries to majority of his foreign attackers including Hugo Boumous, Roy Krishna and David Williams but what has kept the team afloat has been the fine form of his Indian forwards in Liston Colaco and Manvir Singh. And in the absence of the regular names in the creative zone, Finnish midfielder Joni Kauko has shepherded the team with his fine play-making abilities. ATKMB will be hoping that the attack combination comes good once again.

For two-time champion Chennaiyin FC, the season turned sour in the second phase where it managed to win just once in the last nine games (it lost five and drew thrice). Interim coach Sabir Pasha would be hoping that his side is able to conjure a surprise in its final outing and upset ATKMB’s applecart.

Where can you watch the match?

The Chennaiyin FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan match will start at 7:30pm and will be telecast live on the Star Network (SD and HD). It will also be live streamed in the OTT Platform, Disney+Hotstar and JioTV.
