    • East Bengal haven't managed one goal in their two matches to date. So far they've lost 2-0 to ATK Mohun Bagan, and 3-0 to Mumbai City. In fairness, the two defeats have come against two of the stronger sides in the ISL.
    • In their last match, NorthEast got played off the field by FC Goa. Gerard Nus' NorthEast side only had 24% of the possession, but remarkably still managed more shots on target in the teams' 1-1 draw.

    • No surprises to see that the bookmakers have NorthEast as favourites, although I am a sceptical given Bengal's opponents so far this season, and United's lack of possession in their last match.

    NorthEast Utd Vs East Bengal Prediction 5/12/20

    Personally I believe the form guide for this match is slightly misleading. I understand why NorthEast are favourites, but they are lukewarm favourites for me.
