Revitalized NorthEast United ready for tough Atletico de Kolkata test

NorthEast United entertain Champions Atletico de Kolkata in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) game at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Guwahati. The Highlanders are boosted after the win against Chennaiyin FC in their last game and will now look to use that win as a spring board to rise up in the table.

Atletico de Kolkata will be looking to regain top spot after FC Goa found their way to the summit after The Gaurs beat the Kerala Blasters yesterday.

Form Guide & Head to Head Record

Atletico de Kolkata have an upper hand over their eastern counterparts, NorthEast United after the Sourav Ganguly owned outfit did the double over John Abraham’s men last time out which included a 2-0 win in Guwahati.

In terms of the form its slightly opposite as NorthEast United come into the game on the back of a 2-0 victory over Chennaiyin FC, while Atletico de Kolkata look to bounce back from their first loss of the season away to FC Pune City.

So the Highlanders will have the best chance so far to put the record straight with Atletico de Kolkata.
