Chennaiyin produced a very disappointing display against Goa to end up suffering the joint-biggest defeat of the season. Chennaiyin sit outside the top six as a result but there will be plenty of confidence and expectation from Owen Coyle’s men ahead of the game against East Bengal.

East Bengal have been very disappointing in recent games and the team has completely lacked confidence in recent times. East Bengal need a victory in this game at all costs or they risk slipping further down the table

Chennaiyin FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Chennaiyin have picked up back-to-back wins against East Bengal

Chennaiyin have averaged two goals per game at home

Reasons to be fearful

It was a pretty bad defensive display from Chennaiyin against Goa

Chennaiyin have already conceded two goals from just six games

Chennaiyin made plenty of defensive mistakes in the game against Goa. The team has gone through a very patchy run of form throughout the campaign. Just when it seemed that the back-to-back wins against Hyderabad and Punjab would lift the team into the top six, the heavy loss against Goa came as a big blow.

On the positive front, Chennaiyin coach Owen Coyle will be pleased about the response shown by his team in the second half against Goa. Even though the name did not score any goals against Goa, the club certainly have potential in the final third.

Star man – Connor Shields

Connor Shields has been in excellent form for Chennaiyin over the last few games with three goals in his six appearances this season. All of these three goals have come in the last three matches. Even though he did not score against Goa, the 26-year-old was influential in the game nonetheless.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

There have been some decent defensive displays from East Bengal

East Bengal have scored in four consecutive league games

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have only been able to get five goals in as many matches

East Bengal are yet to score in back-to-back games against Chennaiyin

East Bengal were quite disappointed not to have taken anything out of the game against Kerala Blasters. The two missed penalties late in the match ended up being costly for the team, who have to pick up a victory against Chennaiyin to stay above the bottom.

East Bengal have been quite poor when it comes to away games over the last year. They have been able to grab only one victory in the last six away matches in the Indian Super League. Coach Carles Cuadrat does have a particularly good record against Chennaiyin after managing three wins in the five outings.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva was pretty disappointed not to have taken the penalty in the 85th minute against Kerala Blasters as it could have significantly changed the outcome of the game. However, he was able to get on the scoresheet with a penalty deep in injury time.

Chennaiyin have managed a string of wins against East Bengal in recent times. They have had back-to-back unanswered wins against East Bengal, who lack confidence going by their performance against Kerala Blasters. It is now three consecutive losses for East Bengal, who will struggle to make an impression especially in an away game.
