Head-to-Head

East Bengal's Surchandra Singh put through his own net in the first half and Rochharzela sealed the win with a 91st minute goal.

East Bengal Form


East Bengal's finals hopes were already dashed before they lost the Kolkata Derby 3-1 to ATK Mohun Bagan on Friday.

A Tiri own goal pulled SCEB level at the break after Roy Krishna had opening the scoring for ATK. But David Williams and Javi Hernandez won it for Mohun Bagan.

Robbie Fowler's side have struggled for wins in their debut season in the Indian Super League.

They have won just three times and posted eight draws during the campaign to sit in ninth spot with two games left to play.

East Bengal Team News


Centre-back Danny Fox misses out through suspension. Scott Neville is likely to replace him on his return from injury.

Coach Robbie Fowler serves the final match of a four-game touchline ban.

NorthEast United Form


NorthEast United extended their unbeaten run to eight games with a last-gasp 3-3 draw against Chennaiyin last week.

The Highlanders trailed 1-0 and 3-2 despite goals from Imran Khan and Deshorn Brown. Luis Machado then snatched a point with a 94th penalty.

It means NorthEast have now won four and drawn four of their last eight matches.

Khalid Jamil's side still have work to do in the race to the finals, having dropped to fifth place behind Goa and Hyderabad.

A win could lift NorthEast back into the top four, depending on Hyderabad's result against ATK Mohun Bagan on Monday.

Left-back Gurjinder Kumar is available again after serving a one-match ban against Chennaiyin.
