SC East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan or as it’s famously known as the Kolkata Derby will be the show-stopper event on Saturday in the 2021/22 ISL season.
The two teams have played one game apiece in the past week so this derby might not be too consequential in terms of determining the finalists or the fate of either side. But, nonetheless, East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan has and will always be one of the biggest games in the Indian footballing scene.
SC East Bengal very recently entered the ISL season and last campaign they were all over the place losing as many as nine out of the 20 matches which they had played in.
This time though, the Red and Yellow brigade are hoping to match up to their age-old rival and at the same time, they want to imprint their status on a pan-India basis.
ATK Mohun Bagan have started the 2021-22 ISL season in emphatic fashion so they will obviously go into Saturday’s derby as the favourites but SC East Bengal always manage to find a new gear within them when they are playing their local rivals which is why we are expecting to see a few fireworks on the pitch.
Kick-Off and Venue for the Kolkata Derby:
The East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan game will be played on the 27th of November, Saturday and the match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
Due to COVID, all the matches are being played in only one state so Saturday’s derby will be held at the Tilak Maidan in Goa.
Proud of the boys for the effort last night. Not bad to start the season with a point. We’ll keep improving.❤️💛#WeAreSCEB #SCEastBengal pic.twitter.com/AHFhj1IOfj
