Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21's round 5 features some intriguing fixtures as league leaders ATK Mohun Bagan look to continue their stellar momentum against Hyderabad FC while their Kolkata rivals East Bengal will eye their first point and goal of the season against Jamshedpur FC.
Antonio Lopez Habas' ATK Mohun Bagan have looked like the team to beat in ISL 2020-21, winning three out of three matches so far comfortably. Watch ISL live along with other round 5 fixtures.
The Mariners have looked solid at the back with Tiri and Sandesh Jhingan at the heart of their defence. They're yet to concede a goal this season.
Up front, Roy Krishna has led the lines for the green and maroons, scoring three of their four goals so far. The Fijian has found the net in each of his three matches this season and will be eager to continue the scoring run against Hyderabad FC.
The Nizams, though, are undefeated themselves so far and will be expected to put up a tough challenge. In Aridane Santana, who has scored both of Hyderabad's goals this campaign, they have a potent battering ram up front to worry the ATK Mohun Bagan defensive wall.

ATK Mohun Bagan's Kolkata rivals East Bengal, meanwhile, have endured a torrid start to their campaign and are yet to register a single point or goal in the league so far. They are at the bottom of the ISL points table.
In all fairness, the red and golds dominated their last game against NorthEast but a lack of a positive goal scorer upfront cost Robbie Fowler's men dearly.
Robbie Fowler and East Bengal fans will hope striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway, who is yet to play a match this season, regains his fitness and can come into the team to address the issue.
The backline too has been below par with the team conceding seven goals in three matches. Against Jamshedpur FC's potent attack featuring last season's Golden Boot winner Nerijus Valskis, the East Bengal defence will need to step up their game substantially if they are to get anything out of the match.
Owen Coyle's Jamshedpur have drawn two and lost one of their three outings so far but have looked dangerous going forward.
