ATK Mohun Bagan will look to lock its chances in the semifinal when it takes on Chennaiyin FC at the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Thursday.

The Mariners are on a 14-match unbeaten run after a stumble early on, with the head coach changing from Antonio Lopez Habad to Juan Ferrando, and will look to continue its high flying form in their penultimate league fixture this season.

Ferrando’s side will have one issue, which would be the lack of clean sheets. The side has managed to have just two clean sheets in its last eight matches and that is something Syed Sabir Pasha, the Chennaiyin FC head coach, will look to exploit.
