On paper, ATK, placed second in the league table with 17 points from 11 games, are certainly favourites going into the match, but their performances in away games have left a lot to be desired as their last away win has come more than a month back.

For Dynamos, it has been a contrasts of sorts compared to ATK as they have got some fresh wind in their fledgling campaign with convincing wins over NorthEast United FC and Mumbai City FC.

They are in the mix with 13 points from 11 games and a win tomorrow will get them straight into the top four, making them a serious contender for a place in the semi-finals.

In their first leg match in Kolkata, both teams had played out a 1-1 draw.

For Dynamos and their Dutch coach Harm van Veldhoven, they finally seemed to have got their bearings right having found a combination that can win matches for the 'Orange Brigade'.

As harsh as it may sound but 40-year-old Italian legend Alessandro del Piero is finding it difficult to bring something special to the table for the Dynamos.

With the novelty factor over after the first two weeks, Van Veldhoven understood that it's business time where the franchise would expect him to deliver.

For Dynamos, their performance will depend a lot on the trio of Danish striker Mads Junker, Brazilian centre forward Gustavo dos Santos and playmaker and skipper Hans Mulder.

Indians like Steven Dias, Shylo Malsawntluanga will like to prove their worth in the crunch match.

If the trio fires in unison, they can prove to be handful for ATK's back four of Kingshuk Debnath, Arnab Mondal, Josemi and N Mohanraj.

It will be their skipper Luis Garcia, whose performance will be key along with country mate Jofre and Ethiopian striker Fikru Tefera. Having started the tournament on a promising note, the ATK goal poacher's performance has tapered down as the event reaches the business end of the cash-rich league.

It will be interesting see what strategy will be employed by ATK's temperamental coach Antonio Lopez Habas.

With Czech left-winger Jakub Podany showing his predatory skill with an opportunistic strike, Habas will depend a lot on Borja Fernandes and Jofre to supply balls upfront in case Garica doesn't get a start.

Among the Indian forwards, the toss-up will be between Baljit Sahni and Mohammed Rafi as Cavin Lobio, who showed a lot of promise, is out with injury.
