ISL 2023-24: Mohun Bagan vs East Bengal – Build-up
With the Red & Gold Brigade coming off winning the 2024 Kalinga Super Cup, where they defeated the Mariners, this will be a fiery clash in front of a 60,000+ passionate crowd with a desperate pull for bragging rights.
The Antonio Habas era will officially kick-start with the biggest game of the Indian football season calendar. For the Spaniard, this is the toughest test he could face in his first game as the Mariners’ manager – but also a perfect one where he can immediately get the fans on his side. With Mohun Bagan having lost their last three ISL games before the AFC Asian Cup break, they are desperate to get back to winning ways to get back into the league title race.
The Red & Gold Brigade are purring with confidence and glee after clinching their first trophy in the Carles Cuadrat era. Cuadrat has already proven that he has gotten Mohun Bagan’s number in terms of being able to outwit them in the Kolkata derbies, with East Bengal already defeating them twice. But this match will have a different task to it. Firstly, Cuadrat can’t use six foreign players anymore and faces a Mohun Bagan side much fresher than his own.
