ISL 2020-21 SCEB vs NEUFC: NEUFC faces survival; East Bengal look to play party-spoiler; SC East Bengal will play for pride when they take on NorthEast United FC in the Indian Super League (ISL). On the other hand, the Highlanders have everything to play for at the Fatorda Stadium on Tuesday.
East Bengal had every chance of progressing into the playoffs but their attack led them down. In the last one month (since January 21), the Kolkata side has scored just five goals in 6 matches, having recorded just 13 shots on target in these games, the lowest among all teams. However, with just two games left now, SC East Bengal assistant coach Tony Grant believes this could be a real test for his side when they take on the Highlanders on Tuesday.
“To play for this club, you have to be able to roll your sleeves up. It’s a great test for our boys to show us their quality,” he said.
In the SCEB vs NEUFC clash, East Bengal will lock horns against a side that is eyeing a place in the playoffs and the encounter will be an enticing one considering NorthEast’s form in the league so far.
Meanwhile, in the SCEB vs NEUFC, the Highlanders cannot afford any slip-ups now. They have been on a dream run ever since Khalid Jamil took over and are seven games unbeaten. This is mainly due to their attack, which has been impressive, scoring 14 goals.
