East Bengal will going to face Mumbai FC in an I league encounter of Saturday evening at Kolkata. After a successful mission at Pune East Bengal are now in a target to consolidate their position in the I League table needs a win on Saturday evening.

The Red and gold, who are currently placed at the fifth position in the league table are performing at the desired level since last two matches. Eelco Schattorie are successful enough to build the team as a unit, concentrating on ground passes while attacking. The central defense looked much more composed, while both the Nigerian strikers are converting.

More over the second line up of East Bengal are ready with a lot of variations in midfield and in the upfront. So, undoubtedly the Red and Gold Brigade are confident enough to earn full points against the Mumbai FC. But Eelco’s prime concern will be his last line of defense as the goalkeeper Abhijit Mondal is injured during the practice session.

Khalid Jamil are in charge of Mumbai FC since last three years. The team from Mumbai can be reckoned as one of the unpredictable team in Indian football capable of changing the equation at any point of time.Mumbai FC currently placed at the 8th position in the league table are eager to earn a point from their away match.

Though Mumbai Fc are under pressure as their coach Khalid Jamil and midfielder Den Lloyd Perira are being suspended by the All India Football Federation. Khalid was suspended by the disciplinary committee of AIFF for his offensive behaviour during the I League match against Bangaluru FC. While Den Periara failed to pass the Anti Doping Test which was conducted by NADA.

East Bengal are on the threshold of an history.If East Bengal wins against Mumbai FC they it would be their 200th NFL/I League victory as the first temm ever. Ranty Martins who leads the scorers pack with 14 goals needs to score one more goal which would be his 200th goal in NFL/I League thereby will become the first player to achieve this feat.

The match will be played in an empty stadium as the entry of the spectators are being restricted by the authorities due to a election in Kolkata corporation. The match will start at 4.30 pm.
