East Bengal vs Chennaiyin Predictions


Monday's ISL contest in Kolkata could go either way, and I fancy a tight match with chances at a premium.

I'm backing under 2.5 goals as my only selection at the Vivekananda Yuba Stadium.

  • East Bengal have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 3 home matches
  • East Bengal have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches against Chennaiyin
  • Chennaiyin have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches

Head to Head


Monday's ISL fixture will be the ninth-ever match between these sides. Chennaiyin are unbeaten in eight previous encounters with three wins to their name. Five matches finished deadlocked. 

East Bengal Form


East Bengal suffered a third defeat in four matches with a 2-1 reversal at Jamshedpur on Thursday. A stoppage-time strike from Jérémy Manzorro settled the story after the Red and Gold Brigade had led for much of the contest.

Since their Indian Super Cup success in January, Carles Cuadrat's side have struggled for form with just one win in five matches. The Red and Gold sit ninth in the division with only 15 points collected from 15 games played. 

East Bengal Team News


East Bengal boss Manuel Cuadrat has a healthy squad at his disposal for Tuesday's match, with no new injuries reported. However, after their midweek defeat to Jamshedpur, Cuadrat is likely to rotate his selection. Forward Felicio Brown Forbes could be in line to make a return to the starting lineup.

Jordan Elsey is sidelined with a serious knee injury. 

Chennaiyin Form


Chennaiyin come into Monday's ISL encounter having also lost three of their last four ISL league contests. Owen Coyle's side conceded twice in the last twenty minutes of Thursday's home defeat against Mumbai City (2-0). 

The Marina Machans have a poor away record this season with just one win from eight away ISL games. Coyle's boys lost each of their last three on their travels and find themselves tenth in the division, also with 15 points tallied from 15 matches played. 

Chennaiyin Team News


Machans boss Coyle has a fully fit squad for Monday´s trip to Kolkata. 

Ankit Mukherjee is available again after missing the midweek defeat against Mumbai. 

Verdict

Neither side have convinced in recent weeks, so we can expect a tight affair on Monday.

Under 2.5 goals is my only selection at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium.
