Delhi Dynamos vs ATK Prediction & Match Preview

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK
Indian Super League
Date: Wednesday, 17 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (New Delhi).

The 2016 champions were the biggest disappointment of the previous Indian Super League term, finishing season second from bottom with just 16 points from 18 games. They are not pulling up any trees at the start of the new campaign either as they head into the third round clash with Delhi Dynamos off the back of defeats to Kerala Blasters and NorthEast United.

The team led by English manager Stephen Coppell failed to find the back of the net at all in mentioned defeats. If we count pre-season friendlies, it’s four subsequent losses without a single goal scored along. Coppell could thus likely have his job on the line without a serious turnaround in form as soon as possible. Can it come on Wednesday evening when ATK travel to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to take on Delhi Dynamos?

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK: Head-to-head

The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the latest history of head to head encounters between these two teams.

It happened on four occasions in eight matches. Remaining four ties saw two wins for each of the teams.

Delhi Dynamos ended the four-game winless streak in outings against ATK in February this year when they picked up a 4-3 victory in front of the home crowd.

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK: Prediction

Dynamos only played one league game so far in the season. They drew 1-1 to last term play-offs contestant Pune City. The team led by Spanish manager Josep Gombau weer unlucky to concede a last-gasp equalizer back then (at the start of the month) after gaining the first half leaf through Rana Gharami.

It was Gombau’s first official match in charge. His main goal will be improving the defensive line which looked way too vulnerable last term. If we count the mentioned draw to Pune City at the start of this season, nine of last ten matches Delhi Dynamos played saw goals scored at both ends.

ATK are struggling badly for goals at the start of the season and this could be an ideal fixture for the hosts to keep their net untouched. We believe there is value in backing Delhi Dynamos to win at the odds of 2.10. The alternative bet would be Delhi to keep a clean sheet at the sky-high 3.75 odds.
