After a disappointing loss against Jamshedpur, East Bengal will be hoping to get back on track when they go up against a poor Chennaiyin team. The Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Kolkata will be the location for this Indian Super League match between two teams who are separated by just goal difference. East Bengal are coming on the back of a disappointing 2-1 loss against Jamshedpur in the last kick while Chennaiyin went through another disappointing home loss against Mumbai City.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

The team continues to show plenty of resilience

East Bengal are only two wins away from getting into the top six

Reasons to be fearful

There have been three defeats for East Bengal in the last four

The last gasp defeat against Jamshedpur will severely dent the confidence

East Bengal appeared to be heading for an unlikely victory against Jamshedpur after having led the match at halftime despite having played below their standards. However, there was a cruel defeat in store for East Bengal, who conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes to end up losing the match. The defeat keeps East Bengal out of the top six position and they still are under pressure from Chennaiyin and Bengaluru. José Antonio Pardo and Jordan Elsey are missing from action for Carles Cuadrat.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva did not have a great impact against Jamshedpur throughout the 90 minutes, but the Brazilian remains in the top scorer in the East Bengal squad with seven goals. The 37-year-old has two goals in his last four appearances.

Chennaiyin FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Chennaiyin have not suffered a loss against East Bengal in the recent six matches

The team has managed two wins in the last three

Reasons to be fearful

The club has averaged less than a goal per game in away matches

Chennaiyin have conceded almost 2 goals per game on average in the away games

Chennaiyin have been through a string of problems that simply do not seem to go away for Owen Cole and his men – whether it is home or away. The team has not suffered a loss against East Bengal in any of the recent six meetings. This is likely to give Chennaiyin some degree of confidence as they try to get back to form. There are no injury issues for the visitors.

Star man – Conor Shields

Conor Shields played for the full 90 minutes against Mumbai City but he did not have a huge impact. The 26-year-old has three goals for the campaign but he has not scored since October. Yet, there have not been too many positives for Chennaiyin in recent weeks.

Chennaiyin continue to remain in a world of problems. Despite having had a long unbeaten run against East Bengal, the visitors are unlikely to be any confident coming into the upcoming match. After winning the Kalinga Cup, East Bengal have failed to kick on and coach Carles Cuadrat has overseen a string of losses in recent weeks. Even now, East Bengal’s overall performances remain positive and they have the potential to bounce back with a victory against Chennaiyin.
