Atletico de Kolkata (ATK) and Delhi Dynamos will look to ending their string of draws with a win when the two sides renew acquaintances in an Indian Super League (ISL) football clash at the Rabindra Sarovar Stadium in Kolkata on Saturday.
Placed fourth and fifth, respectively, Delhi and Kolkata remain unbeaten after four games but have played three draws.
While the hosts are likely to be again without marquee man Helder Postiga and have struggled to hold on to their lead conceding late goals, Delhi started with a bang only to fizzle out in the last two matches courtesy too much of shuffling with the starting XI.
The inaugural champions though are unperturbed with the lack of wins in their kitty with both coach Jose Molina and Postiga stressing on the fact that their unbeaten streak is key to reaching the knockouts.
“We are not losing which is key in a short tournament like the ISL. One or two wins can propel us to a playoff place which is all that matters,” Molina has said earlier.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been let down by their porous defence which was on show in their last game against Mumbai City FC which ended 3-3.
New coach Gianluca Zambrotta is still to settle down on a starting XI and that has been their bane so far.
Both outfits will look to brush aside these concerns and register their second wins, having accumulated six points from four matches.
