The match won't be easy against the newly introduced Punjab-based outfit Minerva FC who will look to upset the Red & Gold giants earn points at home & mark their presence in I-League 2016-2017. With the intense weather, bad pitch quality & a hostile home crowd East Bengal will look to garner all three points with their attacking gameplay.
The only team to feature from North India will look to upset the Red & Gold away winning record with Manandeep Singh, Anirudh Thapa , Ivan Filatov, Jewel Raja & lots more hailing from the academy itself.
The East Bengal gaffer will look to carry on with his winning combination, but a niggle to Mehtab Hossain may give way to Rowlin Borges to man the central midfield with skipper Dika.

Ivan Bukenya who has already attracted the limelight & is the current top scorer for the club with 3 goals in 4 appearances will try to carry on his goal scoring spree against the Punjab outfit.
