The matches between Mohun Bagan and East Bengal are one of the fiercest contests in the Indian Super League. The Kolkata derby has a history of more than 100 years between the two teams. Mohun Bagan have been immensely successful against East Bengal in recent years, but extending that record will be an immensely difficult task given the stature of the two teams coming into the game.

ATK Mohun Bagan Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Mohun Bagan have won all of the ISL matches against East Bengal

Playing at home gives Mohun Bagan a significant advantage

Reasons to be fearful

There have been several poor defensive performances from Mohun Bagan of late

There have been no clean sheets for the team in the last nine

Mohun Bagan have been able to get the better run and joy out of the Kolkata derby in recent years. A string of successes against East Bengal is likely to give a psychological edge for Mohun Bagan, who have been struggling of late. After having enjoyed a 100% record in the 2023-24 ISL season for a significant chunk, Mohun Bagan have ended up going through three consecutive defeats in the league.

The team has fallen to as low as 5th in the table and the likelihood of being caught up by the likes of NorthEast United has only increased. Coach Antonio Lopez has been in the dugout for the last month and he has a 100% record against East Bengal. Anwar Ali and Ashique Kuruniyan are ruled out due to injuries.

Star man – Jason Cummings

Jason Cummings will be the key player for Mohun Bagan as they look to rediscover the winning touch. The midfielder has come up with four goals and an assist so far this season. It puts him at the top of the scoring charts for Cummings.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

East Bengal are on a high after winning the Kalinga Cup

The team has been doing very well going forward

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have not been completely convincing with their defensive displays

There has been just one clean sheet for the team in the last five

East Bengal managed to win the Kalinga Cup and reach the AFC Champions League 2 preliminary stage for next season. This is a big high for the team on several fronts. It could not come at a better time, as it gives a huge impetus and confidence for the team ahead of the Kolkata derby. In recent years, East Bengal have struggled immensely in this fixture but the upcoming match will be an opportunity to put things right. Jordan Elsey will be missing due to an injury for coach Carles Cuadrat.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva once again played an influential role for East Bengal in the Kalinga Cup success. The Brazilian is also the leading scorer for East Bengal in the Indian Super League after hitting five goals for the campaign. He is head and shoulders above his teammates in terms of the scoring record.

Even though the two teams are barely separable on the overall record, East Bengal are heading into the game with a lot of momentum. The success in the Kalinga Cup will be a big boost for the team. Mohun Bagan might have made an impressive start to the season but may have been struggling. Coach Antonio Lopez is still trying to hit top form with the team.
