Team News – SC East Bengal
East Bengal had to go through a lot before making it to the Indian Super League. However, the prestigious club from Kolkata made some huge investments in players to reinforce the glory days. Arindam Bhattacharja’s leadership has looked calm and collective in their first match against Jamshedpur. But, the fewer attacks have created some questions on East Bengal’s tactics. Though it is just the start of the tournament, they would love to start on point from the go.
n their draw against Jamshedpur, East Bengal could only manage a 37% position which raises concerns about Manolo Diaz’s game plans as well. Therefore, the mid-field needs to be more in action and control the game for the red and gold. Bikash Jairu and Sourav Das will have a major role to play if they want to beat ATKMB first time in ISL history.
Injury and suspensions
Till now there are no injury concerns for SC East Bengal. Therefore, you can expect a full-strength team the Red and Gold against the arch-rivals.
Team News: ATKMB
ATKMB will surely be the happier team going into the derby. Currently placed at number 2 in the ISL table, Habas will be confident of another derby win in ISL. Though the Mainers had many opportunities to score and score 4 goals, they only managed to have 35% of the ball position against Kerala Blasters. Hugo Boumos (2), Roy Krishna, and Liston Colaco were on the goal-scoring list but Habas was not that impressed with the minor mistakes they made.
