7:00 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of the Jamshedpur FC vs ATK Mohun Bagan match in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23. The kick-off is just half an hour away! I’m your host Aishwarya Chakraborty, and I’ll be keeping you company through what promises a fascinating evening of football. Please wait for 30 Seconds for the Live blog to load.

Jamshedpur FC and ATK Mohun Bagan, at this point, sit in weirdly similar positions at two ends of the Indian Super League (ISL 2022-23) table. The Men of Steel no more have chance to qualify for the playoffs. The Mariners, too, have zero chances of winning the league championship.

All they can hope for is to please their fans with a strong swansong to the league stages. ATK Mohun Bagan probably have more on the line than Jamshedpur, as they can still secure a top-three finish at the end if they win their remaining games.

Juan Ferrando’s side need a big win to regain their momentum and head into their final matches high on confidence. Aidy Boothroyd’s side will aim to act as disrupters and further dampen their form, while giving their fans something to be cheerful about.

The Stakes

Jamshedpur FC

The Men of Steel have had a disastrous season. After allowing many key first-teamers to leave, they’ve struggled to adapt to the change. With just three wins in 17 games, Jamshedpur have one of the worst records in the ISL.

For now, all they have to play for is their fans. They can’t qualify for the playoffs or finish in the top half of the table. They have nothing more to lose and this might make them more dangerous.

Indeed, Boothroyd will probably allow his side a free pass to play without pressure and try to expose ATKMB’s issues. Losing another game doesn’t bother them anymore, as the players will just be focused on producing an entertaining spectacle for the fans and send them home happy.

ATK Mohun Bagan

Expectations are always there for ATK Mohun Bagan to be competing for top honours. Now that they can’t compete for the ISL Shield anymore, all they can hope for is the playoffs. But with the playoffs battle getting tighter, they need to start winning games again.

As Juan Ferrando recently stated, ATKMB are aware that whoever they face will play to their best potential against them. The Mariners need to find a second wind at this stage to finish the season strongly.

The Spanish mentor will try to motivate them in order to get the very best out of them in these remaining games. A big win against Jamshedpur FC can act as a stepping stone to take them to the promised land next month. Another draw or loss, however, can further dampen the mood and subsequently, results, in the final few games.
