East Bengal will take on Mumbai City FC in their final Group B match of the Durand Cup 2022 at the Kishore Bharati Krirangan Stadium in Kolkata on Saturday, September 3. The match will kick off at 6:00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
Under new manager Stephen Constantine, East Bengal have failed to score a goal in their three matches in the ongoing edition of the Durand Cup.
The Red and Gold brigade played back-to-back goalless draws against Indian Navy and Rajasthan United before suffering a 0-1 loss against arch-rivals ATK Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata derby on Sunday. With two points from three matches, East Bengal are already out of contention for a playoff spot.
On the other hand, Mumbai City FC have been the most dominant team in Group B. Led by manager Des Buckingham, the star-studded Mumbai City side thrashed Indian Navy 4-1 in their opening match of the tournament before playing a 1-1 draw against ATK Mohun Bagan.
The ISL 2020-21 champions then hammered Rajasthan United 5-1 in their third match to book their place in the Durand Cup 2022 quarter-finals.
Mumbai City are currently at the top of the Group B standings with seven points from three games and they will aim to continue their unbeaten run in the tournament on Saturday.
