East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

East Bengal have lost only once in the recent five games at home

East Bengal’s defence has been watertight in home matches this season

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have lost all three home games against Mohun Bagan

The team’s confidence is shattered following back-to-back losses

East Bengal remain in trouble after losing three out of the recent four matches. The club are level on points with Chennaiyin coming into the match. Just after winning the Kalinga Cup, East Bengal showed a lot of promise but they have failed to kick on from this promising position. Now, East Bengal are in danger of falling down to 11th place in the table. The lack of trust from the forwards has been a big factor behind the blip.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva remains the top scorer in the East Bengal squad by a sizeable margin. The Brazilian has five goals but he has not been on the scoresheet since early February. Still, the creativity provided by the 37-year-old will be key for East Bengal.

ATK Mohun Bagan Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Mohun Bagan have registered four wins in the last five league matches

The club has scored over 2.5 goals in two of the last three

Reasons to be fearful

Mohun Bagan’s away form has been less spectacular

Mohun Bagan are back in the title race following a brilliant run of four wins in the last five games. The club are now just two points away from catching Odisha and Mumbai City. Crucially, Mohun Bagan have two games in hand over Odisha while they have a game in hand over Mumbai City. Since the return of Antonio Lopez to the dugout, the fortunes have changed dramatically for Mohun Bagan. The 66-year-old has never lost to East Bengal in his coaching days. He will be without Anwar Ali and Ashique Kuruniyan for the upcoming game.

Star man – Dimitri Petratos

Dimitri Petratos is the top scorer for Mohun Bagan with seven goals and an assist in 14 league appearances this season. He has also shown splendid form during the AFC Cup with three goals from just four matches. After getting on the scoresheet in the win over Jamshedpur, Dimitri Petratos has now scored in three out of the last four appearances.

Mohun Bagan might have been involved in a 2-2 draw in the recent Kolkata Derby. However, they are in a much better position coming into the match than East Bengal. Even though form goes out of the window for a derby game, Mohun Bagan’s superior quality is likely to have a big say over the 90 minutes. Mohun Bagan have a 100% record to preserve in away matches against East Bengal.
