Lineup Prediction: Punjab FC vs Quess East Bengal FC
Last Updated 10:03 AM 7th December 2019 .After dropping points against Real Kashmir FC in the first round on Wednesday, Quess East Bengal FC are all set to play Punjab FC away at Ludhiana today within a span of less than 72 hrs.
The team had a logistic mishap and reached Ludhiana only early morning today at around 4 pm. So, it will be interesting to see how the players cope of to the fatigue. For the match, we predict some changes to the lineup for the very same reason.
Ralte was confident throughout and we expect to see him again under the crossbar.
We expect Mehtab and Crespí to start again as they were pretty solid throughout against Real Kashmir. Ambekar is a sure choice as a leftback while we believe Samad might come in for Kamalpreet as the later had a below average game against Real Kashmir on Wednesday.
Kassim and Naorem again are first choice with Didika out as the double pivot. Juan Mera mesmerized the fans with his slick skills and provided the assist for the equaliser at Kalyani. Colado is an automatic choice.
Only swap that could happen is Abhijit Sarkar starting in place of Pintu Mahata today. The boy from Jhargram had a poor game and is surely looking devoid of confidence. Abhijit after coming on had a better 30 mins and we expect him to start ahead of Pintu in today’s game.
Marcos de la Espada scored the equaliser even though he missed 3 clear opportunities. He still becomes the first choice upfront and hopefully will be more confident after a goal to his name in the first game.
