5:50pm: Head-to-head record!!

SC East Bengal ( DLWLL ): The Red and Gold brigade have lost three, won once and drawn another in their last five matches. Newly-appointed head coach Mario Rivera inspired SC East Bengal to its first win in the ISL 2021-22 season but crashed to consecutive losses against Hyderabad FC and ATK Mohun Bagan.

Chennaiyin FC (WLDWL): The former champion has lost two, won two and drawn once in its last five matches this season. After an inspiring start to the campaign, Bozidar Bandovic’s men have lost track midway, but are still in contention for a semi-finals spot. The SC East Bengal match will be the perfect opportunity for them to register a win and get back to winning ways.


SC East Bengal  will resume the hunt for its second win of Indian Super League (ISL) season when it takes on  Chennaiyin FC  at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Wednesday.

East Bengal, which is lying at the bottom of the current league table after successive losses following its first win, saw its worries compounded after the heart-breaking loss against traditional rival ATK Mohun Bagan in the previous round.


The team’s new Spanish coach Mario Rivera sought to prepare the team keeping the positives of the derby encounter, which his side lost conceding three goals in the second-half added time.

“For professional teams, when you lose a match, you have to keep the good things, eliminate the bad things and start from scratch in the next match. It will be nothing different for us,” Rivera sought to set the team in the right frame of mind before the next match. Having technically lost the chance to make it to the play-offs, Rivera’s side (on nine points from 14 matches) will now be looking to improve its position in the league standings. 

For visitor Chennaiyin FC, which is now placed eighth in the table (18 points from 13), a win will get the team back in the top-four. This will be the foremost consideration for the side as it looks to brush aside the 0-3 loss against Bengaluru FC in the previous match. Then there was the news of Lallianzuala Chhangte moving to Mumbai City FC on loan.

Head coach Bozidar Bandovic while ruing the loss of the key winger said the team will do well with the available resources. “I always believed in the team and the next seven games are going to be tough. Our next game is very important. As I said before, it is going to be a big success if we play in the top-four,” Bandovic said.
