WRITTEN BY JAYDIP DASGUPTA: The third exhibition match of the CFL between the two giants of Kolkata East Bengal and Mohammedan Sporting will going to be kicked off at the Yubabharati on Thursday evening. The Derby is equally important for both the teams. Mohammedan Sporting has replaced their coach - Sanjoy Sen who guided Mohammedan to qualify in the 1st division of the I league will be in the dug out. If Mohammedan SC can earn points from Thursday's derby then the equation of the CFL are likely to change. On the contrary a win for the Red and Gold will advances them for the forth tittle in a row.

Armando is concern mainly for the hectic schudule as East Bengal are playing a number of matches in short span. Mehtab Hossain and Uga Opra are out of the final team for the injury and it is likely that Sueaka and Moga will be the two foreigners who will be in action. Sanjoy Sen are having all his three foreigneers in good condition and it is upto him to choose the right man in his first eleven. East Bengal are still unbeaten in the CFL this year.
