Chennaiyin FC vs SC East Bengal H2H
SC East Bengal to win: Why is this a good bet?
- SCEB are unbeaten in their last 6 matches
- They have scored 8 goals in their last 5 games
- Chennaiyin have scored 5 in their previous 5
- CFC have drawn 3 and lost 1 in the same duration
- The first leg of this fixture ended in a 2-2 draw
When they met last time, the result was 2-2 where Robbie Fowler’s men fought back superbly to salvage the point. It was that result that marked the start of their unbeaten streak; since then, they have beaten Odisha FC and Bengaluru whole holding Goa to a 1-1 draw.
The last game of Red and Gold Brigade was against Kerala Blasters, where Scott Neville scored a goal in the 90th minute to draw the match 1-1.
East Bengal are now at the 9th place with 11 points – 5 short of the playoffs spot. However, the kind of resilience and grit with which they are playing, they may end up doing the impossible.
Coming to Chennaiyin, they have moved up to the 5th place with 14 points and are looking quite determined to move up further. Despite losing Rafael Crivellaro to injury, Csaba Laszlo has done well to fill that void and keep the campaign alive.
They last beat Odisha FC with 2-1 before holding them to a goalless draw. Before that, they were beaten by Hyderabad FC with 4-1.
Defensively, they haven’t been that bad either with just 12 goals conceded. But in terms of scoring goals, they have taken 153 shots – 2nd highest in the league but scored only 10 goals – the lowest in this season of the ISL.
It will be frustrating for the Marina Machans and that is something that SC East Bengal can look to exploit further. At odds of over 3.5, we peg SCEB as the victors here.
Both Teams to Score: Why is this a good bet?
When the two teams met last, both teams scored and the match saw over 2.5 goals. There is no reason why this may not happen this time around too.
SC East Bengal have upped their game considerably since that draw and have held their own against some formidable sides. CFC are still rocky but can score an odd goal or two.
