East Bengal are looking for a first home win against Mumbai City when the two teams prepare to face off each other at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium as part of game week 15. East Bengal’s progress up the league table was halted by a loss against NorthEast United while Mumbai City had a big loss against Jamshedpur at home. Both teams have plenty of defensive issues to sort out in this encounter.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

East Bengal have scored four goals in the last two league matches

The team has suffered only two losses at home this season

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have been exposed in counter-attacking situations too often in the last two matches

In the recent matches against Mumbai City, East Bengal have been struggling for positive results

East Bengal might have done very well in the Kalinga Cup but the team has found it difficult to translate the form into the Indian Super League matches. The team has failed to win the last two games but they have provided a very good account of themselves. East Bengal are looking for their first success since beating NorthEast United by a huge 5-0 margin at the start of December. Coach Carles Cuadrat will be coming into the game with Jordan Elsey unavailable due to an injury.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva might not have scored against NorthEast United but he was crucial in getting the team’s second goal of the evening. The Brazilian has six goals and an assist for the season.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Mumbai City have never lost to a team managed by Carles Cuadrat

Petr Kratky’s team have been solid at the back

Reasons to be fearful

Mumbai City are coming on the back of a first home defeat this season

Mumbai City are without a goal in the last two away matches in the league

From a disappointing Kalinga Cup, Mumbai City have resumed their league campaign with a defeat against Jamshedpur. Coach Petr Kratky will be particularly disappointed with the outcome, as his team were 2-0 up at half-time. Yet, Mumbai City were unable to hold on to this impressive lead despite playing at home. There are no injury concerns for Mumbai City ahead of this game.

Star man – Pereyra Diaz

Pereyra Diaz did not get on the team sheet against Jamshedpur but he is expected to be back for this upcoming match. He is the top scorer for Mumbai City with six goals.

Mumbai City had a difficult second half against Jamshedpur and the team will be keen to avert mistakes made in big numbers in the game. East Bengal, though, have been offensively pushing very well and they have enough capability of troubling this Mumbai City defence. At the same time, East Bengal can also have too many players forward and this can result in counter-attacking opportunities for Mumbai City. This game may not have much to separate just like the reverse fixture.
