ATK Mohun Bagan Vs East Bengal: Build-up

The biggest match of Indian football, i.e. the Kolkata Derby, is just around the corner. This ISL season’s first Kolkata Derby is set to take place on 29th October, 2022, Saturday. It is one of the oldest fixtures of Indian football. The fixture is of huge significance among the supporters of ATK Mohun Bagan and East Bengal who often celebrate a derby win with the same enthusiasm of winning a tournament.

The last meeting between ATK Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, in a Durand Cup match, was not able to meet the expectations of fans. Both the teams played scrappy football on that day. ATK Mohun Bagan won by a solitary goal, which was actually an own goal from East Bengal. A lot has happened since then. Now, both the teams will be looking to deliver quality football on Saturday to trump their arch-rivals.

The Stakes

ATK Mohun Bagan are currently placed on the seventh position with three points. They are just above East Bengal playing a game less. A win on Saturday will take them to the top six of the league table. With a bad start to the preseason tournaments, it is of paramount importance for Juan Ferrando and his men to have a good league season. In that regard, a win on Saturday becomes hugely significant.

A win is of consequence for East Bengal in terms of their position on the points table as well. Similar to ATK Mohun Bagan, they are also on three points, playing one game more than their arch-rivals. Three points will take them to the top half of the league table, a sight that East Bengal supporters will be craving for. East Bengal’s win against NorthEast United came at the right moment for the club as they can build on the momentum from that game to trump the Mariners.
