    East Bengal FC and Punjab FC will embark on their final league fixture of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 season when they lock horns at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on April 10, Wednesday, at 7:30 pm IST.

    The Red and Gold Brigade have a chance of qualifying for the playoffs with a prospective victory in this match that will take them to 27 points in 22 games. They need that slight cushion of advantage as either NorthEast United FC (23) or Chennaiyin FC (24), or both of them, will drop points when they square off. 

    The Carles Cuadrat-coached side has turned things around with consecutive victories in their last two matches. Contrastingly, things took a turn for the worse for Punjab FC, which has accumulated 21 points from as many games this season.

    At one point, it had a definite chance of sealing a spot in the top six. However, dropping 11 points from a possible 15 in their previous five encounters derailed its charge for the playoffs.

    When and Where will Punjab FC vs East Bengal ISL 10 match kick-off?
