Still in search of their first-ever win in the Indian Super League (2020-21) season, Robbie Fowler’s SC East Bengal and Kibu Vicuna’s Kerala Blasters cross swords on Sunday, December 20, at the GMC Stadium.
Kerala Blasters and East Bengal are two of the three teams this ISL season who are yet to win a single fixture so far. While the former has lost three of their five games this season, the latter has been on the losing side in four of the five. Even the goals have been hard to come by, especially for Robbie Fowler’s men, who have scored a mere two goals in five outings, while conceding 10.
A slow start to the ISL 2020-21 season sees East Bengal acquiring the last spot in the tally, while Kerala sit ninth. A win for either side wouldn’t have a drastic effect on the ISL points table, to say the least, as the teams would still relinquish in the bottom half.
