The ATK vs KBFC match preview –
The inaugural game of the premier football club competition in India, the Indian Super League will take place between ATK and Kerala Blasters FC in the fifth season of the flagship tournament.
ATK are the most successful team in the history of this competition. They’ve won the title twice, and owner Sourav Ganguly has been cautiously optimistic about the third title this year as well. They had a dismal season last year, but the fact they’ve got a manager in the likes of Steve Coppell will boost the morale of everyone at the club. Also, they have made clever investments before the season to bolster their attack and defence. Big things are expected from the former champions this season, and they will be charged up to start the tournament on the positive note.
Meanwhile, Kerala Blasters FC will be looking to give the people back in their home state something to be happy for after the recent calamity. The beauty of football transcends culture, religion and nationality. That’s why sometimes it can be the thing to bring back some positivity as Kerala suffers. The players would be aware of the fact that they’re going out on the pitch to perform for the management but also for the fans who need to feel better after being robbed of the homes they built.
