East Bengal are in a target to earn full points in their second match before they clash against the arch rivals at Kolkata on the 23rd of January. Shenaj Singh will be out of the squad due to mussel injury and it is likely that experienced Mehtab Hossain will be included in the final line up. The Nigerian goal machine Ranty Martins regain his form in the last match and the attack of Red and Gold rely mainly on the brilliance of Nigerian goal machine as well as Do Dong Hume, who proved himself successful in the CFL.
The team combination and coordination of East Bengal are not yet to at the desired level as Biswajit Bhattacharjee, East Bengal's head coach feels that a team effort can lead to success. In the pre match press conference Biswajit Bhattacharjee said," They have a good mix of players in their squad. Their coach Khalid Jamil is a really nice and gentle coach and he has done very well at Mumbai FC. So it is a game which we will take very seriously."
Mumbai FC are one of the unpredictable football team in I League being managed by Khalid Jamal since long. East Bengal lost to Mumbai FC at away in 2014-15 edition of I league, but shared a point at Kolkata. While interacting at Mumbai, Kalid Jamil said, “East Bengal are a very good team, they play some really good football and I am expecting a really tough game for us".
