  • February 03, 2024 20:08

    East Bengal’s compact defence forces Sadiku to try and go for the magnificent. Sahal dribbles past three East Bengal players and passes it to Sadiku, who shoots over the net.

  • February 03, 2024 20:07

    This is absolutely beautiful football from Mohun Bagan. Petratos and Sadiku combine with the latter flicking a ball over East Bengal’s defence to Sahal but his final cross is cleared by Pardo.

  • February 03, 2024 20:04
    33’ Subhaish gets a yellow card!

  • February 03, 2024 19:42

    Anwar Ali looks to be holding his left hamstring as he tries to stop Saul Crespo. He sits down, receiving medical assistance from the MBSG team but if it is a hamstring, it will be heartbreak for the centre-back. He has just returned from an ankle injury.

  • February 03, 2024 19:40
    8’ Shot!

    East Bengal gets a free-kick within seconds with Mahesh pushed to the ground by Brendan.

    Carles Cuadrat, East Bengal head coach:

    We know that it is going to be a very difficult game. When you are facing a coach who is playing his first game with a team, it becomes a challenge to know what strategy he would employ.

    We are looking for a victory and we will see if we can get more men in numbers for attack.

    Antonio Lopez Habas, Mohun Bagan Super Giant head coach:

    I think tonight is another derby. The quality is there in both teams and we have to work hard to secure a win. I think Juan did a fantastic job here. But now, by job is to change the circumstances the team is in at the moment. The past is the past and I am only thinking about the present.
