With the aim of climbing the table, SC East Bengal take on FC Goa in the Indian Super League (ISL) on Friday at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Goa.

The Red and Golds succumbed to a 0-1 defeat against league leaders Mumbai City FC in their most recent ISL fixture. The defeat put an end to their seven-match unbeaten run. Robbie Fowler’s East Bengal have managed to emerge as a settled unit but lack creativity in the final third.

FC Goa, meanwhile, have been one of the few consistent teams in the league. They are third in the standings and look the firm favorites to retain their place as the competition nears its business end. They drew 1-1 with Kerala Blasters in their most recent ISL game.
