Kingfisher East Bengal Looks To Break Jinx & Retain Their Pole Position Against Mumbai FC.
When the whole of West Bengal will dawn yellow color offering prayers to Maa Saraswati, with the whole of India eagerly waiting for a soothing budget that might wipe horrors of demonetization revolution. In Barasat East Bengal will lock horns with their thorn in a flesh like opponent Mumbai FC. One of the few teams that have always been a tough hurdle to cross for the Red & Gold Brigade, as the boy's from Mumbai holds an undefeated record since 2013.
In their debut season, East Bengal was defeated in both the legs by this team. With player & coach Khalid Jamil moving to Aizwal FC after a long tenure the Mumbaikar's will look up to their new coach who also bears the tag of "Giant Killer". Kashyap has shown it in past with Royal Wahingdoh where he finished in the top half of the I-League table.
A stern test for TJM & his boys who will be tired as they will take the field within 60hours after 5-0 mauling of Minerva Punjab FC in Ludhiana.
The East Bengal fans would expect their trio upfront to deliver the goods & notch up 3 valuable points to retain pole position in points table.
Wedson Anselme fresh from his hat-trick will once again try to combine with Robin Singh & Willis Plaza to break their jinx against the Mumbai side.
On the other hand, Kashyap would try to upset the Kolkata Red & Gold giants with Willis Plaza's international teammate Densill Theobald & counter attacking the football .
A tough test awaits Kingfisher East Bengal in Barasat. The match starts at 7:00 pm & will be covered live on Ten 2.
