Kerala Blasters get ready to host East Bengal in the final home game in the regular campaign of the 2023-24 Indian Super League. Kerala Blasters have a sizable advantage over Bengaluru in the sixth place. Meanwhile, East Bengal have completely lost momentum from the Kalinga Cup success and they are starting at a fourth consecutive loss.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Kerala Blasters produced a decent performance against Jamshedpur

The team has scored four goals in the last two matches

Reasons to be fearful

The club have back-to-back away matches to end the regular campaign

Kerala Blasters have not kept a clean sheet in the last five

Kerala Blasters picked up a valuable point in the away match against Jamshedpur. The team has only one home game before the end of the regular campaign. After having struggled with away matches throughout the season, coach Ivan Vukomanovic will be looking to get as many points as possible on board. Adrián Luna, Kwame Peprah, Jaushua Sotirio, Sachin Suresh, and Aibanbha Dohling remain the injury concerns for the home team.

Star man – Dimitrios Diamantakos

Dimitrios Diamantakos has been a player on fire over the last few weeks. The 31-year-old has come up with 13 goals in just 16 league appearances this season. This includes three goals in his last two matches. It is very difficult to look beyond Dimitrios Diamantakos at this juncture.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

There is less pressure on East Bengal playing away from home

The chances of finishing in the play-offs are still alive

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal could suffer four consecutive defeats

East Bengal could be beaten for the second time this season by Kerala Blasters

East Bengal have an outside chance of finishing in the top six places given their recent run of form. The team are sitting with 18 points from the 19 matches but the top six places are just four points ahead. However, it would take an astronomical push from East Bengal to get anything out of their top six ambitions. Carles Cuadrat comes into the fixture without Jordan Elsey and José Antonio Pardo unavailable because of injuries.

Star man – Nandhakumar Sekar

Nandhakumar Sekar is once again expected to lead the line for East Bengal. The 28-year-old has five goals in 19 appearances in the season with 14 of them coming from the start. The forward has not scored in the last three games, but his overall form in the last few weeks has been pretty good.

East Bengal have been struggling for momentum and results for the last few weeks. The heavy losses against Mohun Bagan and Odisha have taken away confidence from the team, who will be away from home in two of the next three. Kerala Blasters have a habit of doing very well at home with the team suffering only two losses from 10 games. Kerala Blasters should have a slight edge to pick up a double over East Bengal this season.
