East Bengal are looking to avoid yet another stalemate with NorthEast United in a home match when the two teams face off each other on Monday. East Bengal and the visitors are separated by four points on the table but recent form puts the two teams at a much closer distance. East Bengal have continued to struggle for results despite managing a draw with Chennaiyin in the last match.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

East Bengal fought valiantly in the draw with Chennaiyin

East Bengal have scored in five consecutive league games

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal are one of the worst-performing defensive outfits this season

There have been no clean sheets for Carles Cuadrat’s team in the last five league games

Another poor defensive display led to East Bengal being unable to latch on to lead against Chennaiyin in the recent game. As a result, Carles Cuadrat and his team are without a victory in the last four games. It is a poor situation for the team, who are just two points away from the bottom spot.

Incredibly, the East Bengal coach has suffered just one defeat against NorthEast United in his eight outings against the club. Jordan Elsey will be unavailable because of a ligament tear.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

One of the few bright spots for East Bengal so far this season has been through Cleiton Silva. The Brazilian is the top scorer for the team with three goals from his six matches. He was on the scoresheet in the home defeat against Kerala Blasters.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

NorthEast United have been very resilient over the last few games

The defensive performances of NorthEast United have been very good

Reasons to be fearful

The opposition have taken the lead in back-to-back home matches

The form of top scorers like Gogoi have deserted the team in recent weeks

NorthEast United have been one of the top defences in the league over the last six matches. It has been a major factor behind the team suffering just one defeat in the last six matches. However, the lack of progress up the league table is down to a forward line up that has not been threatening enough. In the six league outings, NorthEast United have only had eight goals.

Star man – Nestor Albiach

Nestor Albiach has been one of the consistent performers for NorthEast United so far this season. The Spaniard has been able to get on the scoresheet this season after scoring in the draw with Kerala Blasters. Crucially, the former Numancia midfielder has been able to offer a great deal of experience in the centre of the park.

The recent outings between East Bengal and NorthEast United have invariably been settled as a stalemate. The two teams have been very closely matched. This was amply reflected in the stunning 3-3 draw only back in February. East Bengal will find it difficult to break through the stubborn defence of NorthEast United. Many teams have already found it difficult to break this defence and the East Bengal outfit have been over-reliant on the magic from Cleiton Silva.
