All you need to know about ATK Mohun Bagan and Gokulam Kerala's second match of AFC Cup 2022.
Preparing to overturn opening day woes, ATK Mohun Bagan prepare for Bashundhara Kings on May 21st at the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan while at the sametime Gokulam Kerala FC get ready to face Maldives outfit Maziya SR.
The game against Gokulam Kerala FC was an eye opener for coach Juan Ferrando, as the defensive woes of the team was exposed to the bones. At the same time, unfortunate circumstances with wastefulness of the forwards upfront, deprived the Mariners from scoring. However, their miseries deepened with central defender Tiri being stretchered outside the field following an ACL injury. With Tiri being absent, along with Sandesh Jhingan not totally fit and Hugo Boumous not present, coach Ferrando will have to make the best use of the resources available.
As for Bashundhara Kings no such news of injury has been heard and a fully fit squad is likely to be available. With their last encounter ending in a 1-1 affair, the cross-border rivals will look for a win, while if ATK Mohun Bagan loses on the three points, their team will be closer to an early elimination.

ATK Mohun Bagan: Amarinder Singh(GK) ,Subhasish Bose, Ashutosh Mehtai, Pritam Kotal , Prabir Das; Joni Kauko, Deepak Tangrii, David Williams; Liston Colaco, Roy Krishna(C), Manvir Singh.

Gokulam Kerala v/s Maziya SR
On the other hand, soaring high from their mammoth win against ATK Mohun Bagan, Vincenzo Alberto Annese will look forward to keep their momentum as they face Maziya SR who narrowly lost to Bashundhara Kings on their opening day encounter.
