FC Nasaf vs ATK Mohun Bagan: build-up

FC Nasaf are arguably the favourites to win this one. They have superior experience of excelling in the knockout rounds and have, of course, won the competition in the past.

Nasaf will not underestimate the threat posed by the Indian Super League (ISL) giants ATKMB and would respect their ability. They’ll aim to use their superior technical skills and physical prowess to get a dominant win over the Mariners.

The ultimate goal for the ATK Mohun Bagan hierarchy is clear – to make the team one of the best in Asia. To gain that reputation, they have to excel in Asian competitions. The Mariners have fought hard to get where they are now. Backing out now is just not an option.

ATK Mohun Bagan don’t have as much experience as FC Nasaf and are probably lacking in overall quality too. It’ll definitely be difficult for them to oust the Uzbekistan giants in this one. However, the Mariners must showcase more hunger and passion to get the win.

They’ll have to work their socks off and match every single step of FC Nasaf’s to get the best out of them. Getting knocked out after coming so far can be extremely disappointing. As a result, the Mariners will be desperate to get the win.
