Confident East Bengal ready to face Churchill Brothers
Last Updated 5:19 PM 18th December 2018 .
East Bengal FC are rejuvenated after winning the Kolkata Derby after a gap of 2 long years and they are hoping to continue the winning streak again on Thursday when they will face 2nd placed Churchill Brothers at Tilak Maidan in Goa.
Coach Alejandro Menendez will most probably be fielding the same lineup as in the Kolkata Derby. Churchill Brothers meanwhile are having some injury concerns as defender Nicholas Novakovic and Khalid Aucho is doubtful for the game.
Churchill Brothers however will start as favourites as they have been scoring for fun this season with ex-East Bengal FC frontman Willis Plaza leads the scoring charts with 7 goals. He is companied with co-patriot Anthony Wolfe who is also a threat upfront.
East Bengal if wins this match will move to the second spot in the league table with 15 points in 8 matches, just 3 points behind the league leaders Chennai City FC.
