Punjab are now outsiders to finish in the play-off positions after falling to a 1-0 loss against Mohun Bagan. The failings of Punjab in the business end of the campaign is to the advantage of East Bengal, who have into the top six following a 2-1 victory over Bengaluru. East Bengal travel to the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi with big hopes of retaining their top six place.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Punjab have scored in four of the last five

There is less expectation on Punjab following the recent set of results

Reasons to be fearful

The team has suffered back-to-back losses

Punjab have lost three of the last four home games

Punjab will be kicking themselves for having let slip an amazing position to qualify for the top six places. The team now have to hang on to an outside hope of finishing in the top six, which is quite unlikely with Punjab trailing East Bengal and Chennaiyin by three points. Many of the top players going through a blip of form in the second half of the campaign can be put down to Punjab’s failings.

Star man – Majcen

Majcen played the full 90 minutes in the loss against Mohun Bagan. He has scored seven goals for the campaign but none in the last two league matches. The 34-year-old is looking to put up one big show in the final regular-season game.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

East Bengal have managed back-to-back wins

The timing could not be better for East Bengal with destiny in their hands

Reasons to be fearful

The team has not kept a clean sheet in the last five

East Bengal do not do great when playing away from home

East Bengal have become unlikely candidates for finishing in the top six places. The team has managed to go one better than Chennaiyin in the last two games. The back-to-back victories have come at an excellent time for East Bengal, who have momentum going into the final regular-season game. Coach Carles Cuadrat continues to be without José Antonio Pardo and Jordan Elsey for the upcoming game.

Star man – Saúl Crespo

Saúl Crespo continued to display his worth with a crucial penalty in the early moments of the match against Bengaluru. The midfielder has now moved up to 4 goals for the campaign – including goals in three consecutive matches.

East Bengal have incredible momentum coming into the match. They have put together a string of victories that have enabled them to snatch a place in the top six with just one game left. It is unlikely that East Bengal will begin to throw away such an excellent position – especially against an inconsistent Punjab outfit.
