6:30 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of the Chennaiyin FC vs SC East Bengal match in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2021-22. The kick-off is just an hour away! I’m your host Ujyant Ramesh, and I’ll be keeping you company through what promises a fascinating evening of football.
Chennaiyin FC vs SC East Bengal: Building up
Bandovic and his team come into this game on the back of a decent win against NorthEast United. Goals from Lallianzuala Chhangte and Anirudh Thapa ensured that they remained in the top four. With a win against Diaz’s men, they will momentarily climb up to the top of the points table. All three points will be important for Chennai, if they want to continue their charge for the title.
It hasn’t been the most ideal start for Manolo Diaz in his debut in the Indian Super League. His team have managed to get only a single point out of a possible nine, which is a sign of worry. Winning their fixture against a buoyant Chennai will be a statement of intent on their behalf. They need to kick-start their season and can do so on Friday.
Inside the Chennai camp, Rafael Crivellaro remains ruled out. The news of his muscle injury came prior to their clash against NEUFC, after which he was ruled out for four weeks. There are no other injury issues.
For Diaz, Balwant Singh still remains on the sidelines. Their skipper Arindam Bhattacharya missed the match against Odisha FC and might be out this time as well. Apart from them, Jackichand Singh and Sourav Das are also injured – looks like SC East Bengal will miss many important players for this game.
