6:30 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of the SC East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan match in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2021-22. The kick-off is just an hour away! I’m your host Uttiyo Sarkar, and I’ll be keeping you company through what promises a fascinating evening of football.
The much-awaited clash between SCEB and ATKMB will be held at the former’s designated home ground, the Tilak Maidan in Vasco, Goa. This is also going to be the first double-header day of ISL 2021-22, with Mumbai City set to lock horns with Hyderabad FC at 9:30 pm.
SC East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan: Building up
The Red and Gold Brigade will look to work on their mistakes from the draw against Jamshedpur. Repeating them against an experienced ATK Mohun Bagan side may prove costly. While they do have brilliant individual players, they are yet to find good chemistry within the team. That’s something that will surely take time, but a win in the Kolkata Derby will go a long way for the team’s morale and confidence.
With a win, ATK Mohun Bagan will find themselves at the top of the table, at least for the time being. After their thumping 4-2 victory against Kerala Blasters in the league opener, they would want to continue their fine form against a nervy East Bengal.
Apart from the three points, a sense of pride is always at stake whenever these two football giants meet.
SC East Bengal will have a fully fit squad, as there are no news of any injury issues within the camp following their first outing. ATK Mohun Bagan will most likely miss the services of Tiri, who was also unavailable for their first match due to an injury.
