NorthEast United vs ATK Mohun Bagan: Build-up
After a very disappointing and forgetful first half of the 2022-23 Indian Super League (ISL) season, NorthEast United would be keen to bounce back in the second half as they take on ATK Mohun Bagan on Saturday.
The Highlanders will host their neighbours in Guwahati in the second match of this weekend’s double-header. It’s been very tough for them so far, but do they have what it takes to turn it around? Let’s dive straight into the preview to find out.
The Highlanders have lost all ten games so far this season, two of which have come under their new head coach Vincenzo Alberto Annese. However, they can be proud of the way they have evolved and improved ever since the appointment of the Italian tactician.

But, it’s high time they start to pick up points if they want to remain in contention for the playoffs. They came into the game following a 2-1 defeat to FC Goa away from home.
After winning three games in a row, the Mariners were held to a 0-0 draw by Odisha FC in Bhubaneswar. They have had a pretty good season, but injuries to key players like Joni Kauko and Florentin Pogba have made things quite difficult for them going into the second half of the season.
Juan Ferrando can take motivation from the fact that his side have already defeated NorthEast United last month when they played at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata. And to add more to their motivation, they have signed Slavko Damjanovic ahead of the January window.
