In the 2nd game of this double-header Sunday at the Durand Cup 2023, East Bengal FC will be crossing swords with Bangladesh Army Football team. The match will be played at the iconic Salt Lake Stadium and is slated to begin from 4:45 PM (IST).
East Bengal FC had finished in the 9th position in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 and had notched up 6 wins. They had a fairly decent campaign in the Super Cup 2023 as they drew all their matches in the tournament.
After the Red and Gold Brigade sacked their Head Coach Stephen Constantine, they named Carles Cuadrat as their new Head Coach. This will be the Spaniard’s first game as the Head Coach of the first-team of this iconic club.
On the other hand, the Bangladesh Army Football Team is one of the 3 foreign teams that are playing in the Durand Cup 2023. They would be hoping to impress one and all and rack up a win against the heavyweights, East Bengal FC.
Bangladesh Army lost their opening game of Durand Cup 2023, 0-5 at the hands of Mohun Bagan Super Giants. The overseas team would be hoping to register a better performance in this game.
They had won the National Championship 2021-22 after they beat Chittagong District in the finals, 4-2. Imtiaz Raihan had netted a brace in the finals for Bangladesh Army and had set up a win for them.
The other teams in their group are Mohun Bagan Super Giants and Punjab FC. East Bengal FC would be sheer favourites ahead of this game as they would also be enjoying the home advantage.
After a disappointing ISL campaign, the faithful and devoted fans of the Red and Gold Brigade would be praying for a better performance from their club.
