AFC Cup 2022: How Can ATK Mohun Bagan Qualify?

The AFC Cup qualifiers for 2022 will include the green and maroon team

Because they finished second in the Indian Super League (ISL) in the 2020-21 season, ATK Mohun Bagan are eligible for the AFC Cup. The Mariners, on the other hand, must qualify for the 2022 AFC Cup group stages after a series of qualifying matches.

ATKMB’s chances of making the AFC Cup group stages are slim.

The AFC Cup qualifications will start in April 2022 with the preliminary stages. On April 5, the preliminary round will begin. ATK Mohun Bagan, on the other hand, will skip this round and jump right into round 2 of their campaign. They’ll play the winner of Nepal’s Machhindra FC and Sri Lanka’s Blue Star FC.

They’ll advance to the Playoff Round if they win this match. The victor of the match between Dhaka Abahani Limited and Paro FC/Club Valencia will face Juan Ferrando’s team in this round. If Roy Krishna and his teammates win both of these matches, they will join Gokulam Kerala in Group D of the AFC Cup in 2022.
When are the games going to be held?

On April 12, the preliminary round 2 match will take place, followed by the playoff match on April 19.

The game will be hosted by the team from the higher-ranked league, according to AFC rules. Bagan will have the luxury of hosting the play-off matches since India has a higher association standing than Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

What criteria will be used to determine the ties?

Each tie will be played as a separate match in the qualifications. If extra time and a penalty shoot-out are required, the winner will be decided by extra time and a penalty shoot-out.
