East Bengal appear to have firmly turned a corner having not lost in their last five Indian Super League games, securing a priceless 0-1 win against Bengaluru this past Saturday. However, Robbie Fowler’s side cannot afford to rest on their laurels with Kerala Blasters able to overtake them with victory here. Kerala ended a two-game losing streak last time out with a thrilling 2-3 victory over Jamshedpur and will head into this one confident, despite East Bengal’s recent good form. These two sides played out a 1-1 draw earlier in the campaign and with both teams off the back of victories, they may end up cancelling each other’s momentum out.
Prediction: Total goals scored will be Over 1.5
