ATK Mohun Bagan will look to pull off a league double over Kerala Blasters FC when they square off in match 78 of the ongoing Indian Super League season (ISL 2020-21) at the Fatorda Stadium in Goa on Sunday.

Kerala, which is ninth on the points table, has had a patchy run of form since the tournament began. Kibu Vicuna's side will seek to break its run of two drab draws against FC Goa and Jamshedpur FC with a win over ATKMB. In the absence of defender Nishu Kumar, the Blasters will hope for a good performance from Sandeep Singh, who has been a consistent performer for them.

Meanwhile, ATK Mohun Bagan suffered a shock loss against NorthEast United FC after a number of decisions went against Antonio Habas' side which could be without forward David Williams, who came off at half time due to a muscle issue. Winger Manvir Singh is most likely to start in the Australian's place upfront.
