Like the FIFA president would like the footballers to. But Vafa didn't. Even at the risk of costing his team the game (the discussion of the absurdity of the yellow card rule is a matter for another day). It's a relief that plenty of his teammates and fans have come out in support of Vafa's actions, although if this generosity would have existed had East Bengal gone on to win the game - one cannot be sure. Jurgen Klopp's defence of footballers being dinged for not speaking up ahead of the Qatar World Cup is correct - they shouldn't have to. Which is all the more reason to applaud them when they do.
ISL musings: Vafa's message for Iran stands out, Mumbai and ATK Mohun Bagan serve up a feast'Week' 4 of the Indian Super League (ISL) and Hyderabad FC remain top of the pile, although it's incredibly tight among the chasing pack as we had our share of keenly-fought contests. Here's what we made of the latest round of fixtures. Mumbai and ATK Mohun Bagan serve up a feast The 2015 ISL final will forever remain the most memorable game in the history of the league - three late goals, goalkeeping errors, emotions running high in the aftermath, arrests, allegations - if OTT platforms were struggling for ideas for their next sports documentary... And yet, when it came to pure footballing quality, it wasn't the best advert for the league.
NorthEast United It’s not unfair to tag NorthEast United as the worst team in the ISL, at least looking at their current form. No other team this season have lost all their games and the Highlanders are really struggling under Marco Bulbul. They’ve suffered some embarrassing losses in recent weeks and are at a real low point in their campaign. But the Highlanders can revitalize their campaign with any kind of a positive result against ATKMB. Even snatching a draw or a narrow win can give a huge surge in momentum to the team. It can help them bounce back and get a proper start to the season. Another loss, however, will further deplete the confidence level in the side. Team News Florentin Pogba is ruled out for the game after sustaining an injury recently.

NorthEast United vs ATK ISL 2019-20: Match Details Date: December 7, 2019 Time: 7:30 PM IST Venue: Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati NorthEast United vs ATK ISL 2019-20: Match Preview NorthEast United are one of the two teams that are yet to lose a match after six games.
Though Pogba was there with the team on the eve of the NEUFC game, he wasn’t seen training with the side. Avilash Paul is also injured, being the two absentees for ATKMB alongside the suspended Lenny Rodrigues. NorthEast United are also expected to have a fit squad with Romain Philippoteaux getting few minutes in the previous game. Head-to-Head ATK Mohun Bagan have faced NorthEast United six times in the ISL, winning four games and losing just once. The other fixture ended in a draw. Probable Line-Ups ATK Mohun Bagan: Vishal Kaith (GK), Asish Rai, Pritam Kotal, Brendan Hamil, Subhasish Bose, Deepak Tangri, Joni Kauko, Hugo Boumous, Manvir Singh, Liston Colaco, Dimitri Petratos NorthEast United: Mirshad Michu (GK), Joe Zoherliana, Mashoor Shereef, Gaurav Bora, Michael Jackobsen, Gurjinder Kumar, Emil Benny, Jon Gaztanaga, Romain Philippoteaux, Jithin MS, Matt Derbyshire Five players with most ISL appearances for Kerala Blasters FC Goa, Chennaiyin FC players dominate ISL 2022-23 Team of the Week for GW 5 Three reasons why East Bengal should sign Lalchungnunga on permanent deal in January Top three I-League teams favourite to qualify for ISL next season Who were the top five performers in Gameweek 5 of ISL 2022-23?

85 xGoT speaking volumes of the lethality of the shots they're taking this season. Goa look primed for a shot at the title this year, whereas Jamshedpur... do not. Hyderabad and Blasters continue in the same vein Another day, another efficient Hyderabad performance, another three points, another title? Mohammad Yasir was the Hyderabad match-winner this time, but the ease with which Manolo Marquez's side squeezed the life out of an impressive Odisha side ought to be disconcerting for the rest of the league. No change from last week then, which was also the case for NorthEast United who were abject in their 0-3 reverse to Kerala Blasters at home.
With 12 goals in six games, the Antonio Lopez Habas-managed side have been the best scoring team this season alongside Goa. Also, the thriller which they played against Mumbai City FC in their last game, where an equaliser in dying moments of stoppage time saved them the embarrassments, must have raised the confidence level further. NorthEast United vs ATK ISL 2019-20: Team News NorthEast United: In what is a great relief for Jarni, Dutch defender Kai Heerings is back in the contention for a spot in the starting eleven after making his return from an injury. ATK: After conceding two against Mumbai at home, the Kolkata-based team will be looking to present a stronger defensive performance. They should be taking inspiration from their last three away matches where they have digested only one goal from open play.
Chance after chance was spurned as both sides conspired to delight in the build-up, fluff their finish or find the woodwork. Statistically, there were 35 shots on goal (10 on target) and only a combined xG of 3. 37, but the sheer amount of near-misses in the game left the crowd and viewers on the edge of their seats. Even the madness that surrounded the spell in injury time - where both teams could have won the game, was befitting of the two men that manage these two sides. As Juan Ferrando and Des Buckingham gathered together to face the cameras in a slightly cringe attempt at a unique post-match show, the mutual admiration was there to see. Both managers have received criticism for their failure to organize a title-winning defence, but if the result is what we were served up, the status quo seems absolutely fine.
Goa and Jamshedpur swap places Jamshedpur looked a far cry from the league-winning side of last year in their 3-0 loss away to FC Goa. Goa meanwhile, also look a far cry from the side that struggled to find the net last season. Carlos Pena has done wonders in a short time, and getting his side to score three goals from just 0. 46 xG in open play is wonderful. It's almost reminiscent of Owen Coyle doing the same with Daniel Chima Chukwu last season, with Pena's strikers converting that xG to 1.
All in all, Habas is likely to field an unchanged starting eleven. NorthEast United vs ATK ISL 2019-20: Probable Starting XI NorthEast United: Chowdhury; Pradhan, Komorski, Vaz, R Singh; Leudo, Chaves, Khawlhring, Tlang, Triadis; Gyan. ATK: Bhattacharya; Kotal, McHugh, Edathodika; Das, Garcia, Singh, Hernandez, Soosairaj; Krishna, Williams.
They are placed 3rd with 10 points, having won 2 and drawn 4. The Guwahati-based team have not been the best in terms of goal scoring and Robert Jarni will need to figure out a solution for that. Also, the defence has been a bit sloppy at times and against opponents like ATK that could be hurtful. ATK, on the other hand, after losing the ISL season 6 opener against Kerala Blasters have revived their fate dramatically. With 3 wins and 2 draws in their last five matches, they sit second at the points table and will be fancying their chance to regain the top spot today.
The Stakes ATK Mohun Bagan The Mariners showed a lot of character in their draw against Mumbai City, earning a point from a tough situation. However, Juan Ferrando will now want to see his side back to winning ways. As they sit six points behind league leaders Hyderabad FC (with a game in hand), the Mariners can’t afford to drop more points. Moreover, doing so against a struggling side like NorthEast United – who have lost all their games this season – will be truly gutting for the Mariners. It would not only dent their title aspirations, but also lower the confidence levels of the players. A win is a necessity and something they truly need to re-join the league title race.

Preview: ATK Mohun Bagan aim to carry momentum against NorthEast United ISL 2022-23: ATK Mohun Bagan vs NorthEast United Preview & Predicted XI Skip to content The Highlanders have defeated the Mariners once prior to this encounter. ATK Mohun Bagan are determined to get back winning ways in the Indian Super League (ISL) against a struggling NorthEast United side on Thursday. The Mariners picked up a stunning late point against Mumbai City and will hope to build on that momentum against the Highlanders. NorthEast United have lost all five of their ISL games this season and will need to pull off a miracle to upset ATKMB in their own yard.
(Courtesy: ISL Media) Having scored his first goal of the season against Mumbai City, Joni Kauko is high on confidence. He’ll probably take up a more advanced midfield role against NorthEast and look to create a bigger impact in attack. Kauko is among ATKMB’s most creative players, as he can play exquisite through-balls that can leave the visitors in tatters. He also boasts of some impressive finishing and shooting ability. Without too much defensive responsibilities on him, the Finland midfielder will be free to do more damage against NorthEast. That itself should make him a menacing factor for the Highlanders.
