East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan: Build-up

The titans of Indian football collide on Saturday, as East Bengal lock horns with arch-rivals ATK Mohun Bagan at the Salt Lake Stadium. This ISL 2022-23 fixture is currently of zero importance to both sides, since the Red & Golds have been knocked out of the playoffs race long back, and the Mariners have already embraced their fate.

When it comes to the Kolkata derby, no statistics come into the picture. It really doesn’t matter where the teams stand in the points table. The quality or depth of the team goes for a toss.

East Bengal last defeated ATK Mohun Bagan in 2019 and are yet to defeat them in the ISL. Thus, Stephen Constantine’s army will be hoping to salvage three points, end their season on a high and give their fans something to cheer for.

Juan Ferrando was under tremendous pressure a few weeks back when his team had lost form. In the previous match, after ATK Mohun Bagan secured their playoffs berth, he was the most relieved man.

His side’s current aim will be to secure the home fixture for the eliminator game. Thus, three points are of immense importance to the Mariners.
