Bottom-dwellers SC East Bengal (SCEB) take on NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) in match 32 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa on Friday, December 17. The Matchday 7 fixture will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
NEUFC vs SCEB Dream11 prediction
SC East Bengal are the only team without a win this season. The Red and Gold Brigade have lost three and drawn as many games so far in the campaign while scoring a mere nine goals. At the other end, they have conceded a whopping 15 goals - most by any team - translating it to 2.5 goals conceded every match.
NorthEast United, on the other hand, haven’t done great either. They sit 10th in the ISL 2021-22 points table with a solitary win in six games. Unlike SCEB, NEUFC are managing one goal every match having scored six goals in as many games.
While this match has all the recipes of ending in a draw, we expect NorthEast United to narrowly pip SC East Bengal.
NEUFC vs SCEB Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
SCEB forward Antonio Perosevic has made quite an impact this season. In a rather gloomy season for his team, Perosevic has accumulated 195 fantasy points while making it to the Dream Team in three outings. At 9.0 credit he might as well be an expensive investment, but bear in mind that he guarantees goals or at least assists for that matter.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Hernan Santana of NEUFC has been phenomenal this season. The 31-year-old Spanish midfielder has accrued a whopping 208 fantasy points in six outings while making it to the Dream Team on all occasions. It comes as no surprise that he is the most-picked player for this fixture.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
With 149 fantasy points, SCEB defender Franjo Prce is the highest-scoring defender for this match. The 25-year-old Croatian centre-back costs 9.0 credits but the fact that he has made it to the Dream Team on three occasions is enough to get him on your team.
For a goalkeeper, NEUFC’s Subhasish Roy is the most picked stopper. The 35-year-old has made some impressive saves this season, leading to 121 fantasy points from five outings. He remains a strong recommendation for this fixture.
NEUFC vs SCEB probable playing XI
NEUFC playing XI (probable): Subhasish Roy (captain and goalkeeper), Provat Lakra, Hernán Santana, Patrick Flottmann, Gurjinder Kumar, Sehnaj Singh, Khassa Camara, Mathias Coureur, Rochharzela, Lalkhawpuimawia, V.P. Suhair
SCEB playing XI (probable): Suvam Sen (goalkeeper); Joyner Lourenco, Raju Gaikwad, Franjo Prce (captain), Hira Mondal; Naorem Mahesh Singh, Mohammad Rafique, Amir Dervisevic, Bikash Jairu; Antonio Perosevic, Amarjit Singh Kiyam
