5:45 p.m .: ATK Mohun Bagan plays in the first after the merger of ATK and Mohun Bagan Semifinals as a new company.
The merger of ATK and Mohun Bagan seemed like a heavenly match with the 2019-20 ISL and I-League champions building a successful partnership in the country’s top division. From a controversial jersey to references to the former ISL company, however, this acquisition had a rocky debut year.
Here’s an episode from the Full Time Show podcast where our reporters discuss the merger and why Mohun Bagan Fans took to the streets with #RemoveATK chants.
NorthEast United FC will try to pick up where Idrissa Sylla left off by defeating ATK Mohun Bagan in added time in the first leg of the second semi-final of the Indian Super League The Guinean striker, who came on in the late 67th minute, kept NorthEast’s hopes up with his spectacular header, which ended the game 1-1. The second leg of the semi-finals, which will take place on Tuesday at Fatorda Stadium, is expected to relieve the action with the same intensity as NorthEast and Mohun Bagan are trying to secure their first place in the final.
Ironically, ATK’s impressive record is in Having won three titles in the last six seasons, void after the merger with Mohun Bagan.
Antonio Lopez Habas, who took ATK with him to capture the title last season, has to realign his armed forces in search of a new record, which he has to write on this occasion for the new company Mohun Bagan. Habas’s cause for concern could be the fact that his team’s otherwise impregnable defense has been struggling lately.
The team conceded only 11 goals in 18 games but managed to keep that order in the last three games, in which she conceded five goals and also remained without a win, not upheld. Mohun Bagan will again rely on the creativity of his attacking trio – David Williams, Roy Krishna and Marcelinho – to make a more productive contribution. He recognized the need to get his team back into winning shape. Habas hoped that his boys would rise to the challenge in the decisive second leg. “There is no pressure. It’s about a great opportunity and that chance wouldn’t come again. We have to do our best and enjoy the semi-finals, ”said Habas.

All was quite optimistic for NorthEast interim coach Khalid Jamil as his team remained unbeaten in the last 10 games. « We have to focus on getting the result as this is a do-or-die game, » said Jamil. “I told the guys to enjoy the pressure. Both teams have to fight for a result as there is no rule for an away goal this time. So it is for our opponent, « added Jamil.
The key to NorthEast’s good form in the second phase of the league was the success of his attack, with playmaker Federico Gallego, Luis Machado (their top scorer with seven goals) and Deshorn Brown did a great job. Jamil hopes his attack converts the odds early to see the way to the finals.
