East Bengal form and stats

1 victory, 3 draws and 1 defeat. That’s what East Bengal have to build on here at Tilak Maidan Stadium in the Indian Super League.

It's back home for Bengal, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Bengaluru away with the result 1-0. Matti Steinmann found the net in that victory. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 1-1 versus Goa.

There will be little rest for East Bengal after this match as they are travelling to Chennaiyin for a Indian Super League game in only three days.

Kerala Blasters form and stats

1-1-3 is the win-draw-loss statistic for Kerala Blasters, who have the most conceded goals (19) in Indian Super League, in their Indian Super League matches away.

It's the second away game in a row for Blasters, but there's smiles all around after the 3-2 victory versus Jamshedpur (placed 5th) in the Indian Super League last time out. Preceding that, the 2-4 home loss versus Odisha FC.

A heroic performance from Kerala Blasters in their game against Jamshedpur last time out. Things got complicated when Lalruatthara was sent off in the 67th minute with the match level. Despite the red card the team were able to pull off a 3-2 victory!

The visiting Blasters have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 6 goals from 5 games. Blasters have conceded 11 goals in these games.
