EBG vs CHN Match Preview

Losing 2-1 to Jamshedpur FC after Jeremy Mazorro scored a last-minute free-kick winner, East Bengal, who led through Nandha Kumar’s strike before half-time, got a major setback in their race for the playoffs. The gap with the Men of Steels increased to five points after they climbed to sixth. Although the Red and Golds have played fewer games than most other top-six contenders, their inconsistency is giving them fear of missing out again. Carles Cuadrat’s men have managed just one win in the ISL this year so far that too a hard-fought one against bottom-placed and winless Hyderabad FC side. Facing another playoff chaser in Chennaiyin FC in the next match whom they have not won against in the league put concern on the Kolkata giants even at home. East Bengal will have to find solutions quickly otherwise the schedule ahead is unkind to them.

Like the home side, Chennaiyin FC have struggled with form and face the prospect of finishing bottom half of the table yet again. Despite going toe-to-toe with Mumbai City FC, the Shield holders had the last laugh claiming a 2-0 victory in Chennai and putting the host in a difficult position. Scoring has been the biggest issue troubling Chennaiyin FC all season, with just one goal scored this year in the league. Neither forwards have managed to impress while the define has also failed to hold guard at a crucial time. Owen Coyle’s team has to regather themselves and needs to stop widening the gap with the playoff spot. The trip to Kolkata to face East Bengal in the next match will be crucial in this regard. The 1-0 win in the only other meeting at Salt Lake will serve as inspiration although the Marina Machans had just got one victory on travels in the ISL this season.
