East Bengal might have thrown away a lead twice in the match against Mohun Bagan, but the Kolkata derby would have given the team a lot of confidence. NorthEast United have not managed a victory since late October and they have also struggled in this fixture in the past. All these might point to a win for East Bengal, but the narrative could change a lot when the two teams meet at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

NorthEast United have lost only once in the recent five

The team has shown a lack of spirit to come back from a losing position in back-to-back ISL games

Reasons to be fearful

NorthEast do not appear confident enough for a victory

The club has not kept a clean sheet in the last 11 league games

NorthEast United once again proved to be a tough opponent after coming back from behind against Jamshedpur, but the team continues to be hit by a lack of victories. The last success for NorthEast United in the Indian Super League was against Jamshedpur back in October. The winless run has seen the team drop out of the top half. Coach Juan Pedro Benali will be reasonably pleased with the improvements made by the team on several fronts, but they have to end this winless sequence much sooner.

Star man – Parthib Gogoi

Parthib Gogoi had a disappointing match against Jamshedpur after being substituted just after half-time. However, the NorthEast United top scorer is likely to come up with a spirited performance in the upcoming match to try and retain his place in the starting line-up.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

East Bengal are unbeaten in the last 11

The club has scored over 1.5 goals in five consecutive games

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have not managed a victory in four consecutive league matches

The team managed to throw away a lead twice against Mohun Bagan

East Bengal are disappointed not to have taken three points from the latest Kolkata derby as it was one of the best opportunities for the team in recent years to put behind their recent winless run in this fixture. However, East Bengal are now looking to end a four-game winless run in the league. Incidentally, the last win for East Bengal was against NorthEast United and it was a big 5-0 success back in December.

Coach Carles Cuadrat has an exceptional record against NorthEast United with only one defeat in nine outings. He has Jordan Elsey on the treatment table.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva ranks as one of the key players in the Indian Super League this season. His presence has been enormous in helping East Bengal put together a 11 game sequence without a defeat. The Brazilian has managed six goals in the league and he was on target from the spot against Mohun Bagan.

East Bengal might not have managed a victory in four successive league matches but they clearly have the nuance when it comes to dealing with NorthEast United. After the big 5-0 success early in the campaign, the psychological advantage rests within the away team. East Bengal have not put much of a foot wrong in many of the recent games.
