Match begins: 14:00 (UTC)
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium

Season ticket holders at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium haven’t seen too many victories this season, with East Bengal languishing in the 9th position so far. The guesting NorthEast United will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.

Insights:
  • NorthEast United has the most scored goals in the first half (16) in Indian Super League

Bengal have less rest than NorthEast United in this fixture, as the hosts were involved in a Indian Super League game only four days ago. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at ATK Mohun Bagan.

These teams have little in common geographically as NorthEast United have to travel 1000 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

East Bengal form and stats

With 1 Indian Super League win, 5 draws and 3 defeats from their home games, East Bengal are certainly not brimming with confidence.

Before that, Bengal drew at home versus Hyderabad.

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

The goals haven't exactly been flowing for East Bengal here at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the league, with less than one goal per game on average (8 from 9 games). Bengal's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 11 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

NorthEast United form and stats

2-6-1 is the win-draw-loss statistic for NorthEast United in their Indian Super League matches away. NorthEast has drawn their two previous away games.

NorthEast has to pack their bags again for the second away game in a row. Last time they traveled to Chennaiyin for a Indian Super League game that ended a draw (3-3). Prior to that match, a home win 3-1 against Odisha FC.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Chennaiyin was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today?

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Kerala Blasters in just three days.

The travelling fans enjoy NorthEast's attacking play in away games, having scored 14 goals in 9 league matches away. In the opposite end, NorthEast United have conceded 14 goals in their away games.
