East Bengal and Bengaluru are set for a big battle for the play-off positions at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Kolkata. Both teams do not have destiny in their hands. Even after the big win over Kerala Blasters, East Bengal have to hope that other teams drop points. Meanwhile, Bengaluru lost a golden opportunity to pick up a home victory and they have dropped out of the top six as a result.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

East Bengal picked up a first win in four

The team scored four goals for the first time in 2024

Reasons to be fearful

There have been five goals conceded by East Bengal in the last two matches

The team has not kept a clean sheet in four consecutive games

East Bengal will take a lot of positives from their victory against Kerala Blasters. The success against Kerala Blasters has given the team amazing hope about finishing in the top six with the rest of the competitors unable to boast of such an impressive performance. East Bengal are three points behind Chennaiyin in sixth place with two games left. Coach Carles Cuadrat may not have seen great performances out of top scorer Cleiton Silva but Saul Crespo was solid against Kerala Blasters.

Star man – Mahesh Singh

Mahesh Singh came up with an excellent contribution towards the end against Kerala Blasters. His brace against the southern outfit has helped him move up to 4 goals for the campaign. He is just three goals behind Silva at the top of the charts.

Bengaluru FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Bengaluru are only two points away from the play-offs

Bengaluru are hoping to do the double over East Bengal

Reasons to be fearful

There have been no away wins for Bengaluru this season

The club were wasteful in front of goal against Odisha

Bengaluru have to be dependent on other teams dropping points to get back into the top six positions. Coach Gerard Zaragoza will be disappointed with the way Bengaluru failed to latch onto a play-off spot in the last few weeks of the season. Bengaluru’s qualification task is made much more difficult with the team’s only remaining home match against title challengers Mohun Bagan. Salam Johnson Singh is the only player on the treatment table for the visitors.

Star man – Javier Hernandez

Javier Hernandez has been a consistent performer for Bengaluru and his performances have been particularly very good when the team have been playing at home. The Spaniard is the club’s top scorer with five league goals.

Bengaluru might be a point ahead of East Bengal in the league table but the club are facing a dangerous situation with two difficult matches left in the regular campaign. East Bengal are playing at home and they have momentum. Bengaluru have lost a staggering seven out of the 10 away matches this season. Bengaluru are unlikely to put up much of a fight in this game based on their away performances.
