Lineup Prediction: NEROCA FC vs Quess East Bengal FC
Last Updated 4:40 PM 9th December 2019 .
After drawing the first two matches, the Red and Gold brigade will be on the road once again as they travel to Imphal to play against NEROCA FC tomorrow within a span of 72 hours.
Tondomba Naorem was injured and had to be taken off against Punjab FC. Mehtab Singh is rumoured to be sick and is returning back to Kolkata.
So let us predict the starting lineup against NEROCA FC:
Lalthuammawia Ralte probably to start again, looking for his first cleansheet in 4 games.
Mehtab Singh is sick and Asheer Akhtar would be a straight swap to partner Marti Crespí in the centre back. Samad and Abhishek will probably start again as the full back duo.
Naorem picked up an injury and was subbed off against Punjab FC. With Didika still sidelined, academy startlet PC Rohlupuia is all set to get his first start in the I-League alongside Kassim Aidara as the double pivot.
Juan Mera and Jaime Colado are automatic names in the eleven.
Pintu Mahata has failed to deliver in both the matches and coach Alejandro might look to change shape to a 4-2-2-1-1 introducing Ronaldo Oliveira to partner Marcos upfront.
