The seventh edition of the Indian Super League began in a bio-bubble in Goa on November 20th.
During During the four-month tournament, eleven teams play against each other in a league and playoff format at three venues. With the addition of SC East Bengal, 115 games will be played this season, up from 95 last season.
There is an unusual feeling of detachment as two of Indian football’s oldest rivals – ATK Mohun Bagan and SC East Bengal – Poles remain apart in the current ranking of the Indian Super League (ISL 2020-21). This is an eerie backdrop for the legendary Kolkata Derby, which will see its second edition of the season on Friday at Fatorda Stadium.
The two traditional rivals have seldom remained this aloof in the long history of their bout, and fans on both sides will wish that the difference doesn’t become a factor in the Derby duel, which has always been an exciting battle between emotions and nerves.
ISL 2020-21 top scorer list: ATK Mohun Bagan’s Roy Krishna leads the Golden Boot race; Angulo second, Le Fondre third
ATK Mohun Bagan, who defeated Jamshedpur FC by a single goal in their last game, are currently at the top of the table with 36 points from 17 games. And with just under three rounds remaining, the Mariners are one of the favorites to get away with the League Winners’ Shield.
In stark contrast, SC East Bengal fell into the bottom half and is up with 17 points from as many games ninth place. The team got off to a bad start and eventually dropped out of the competition so as not to recover much in the later stages.
What makes the competition even more significant is the fact that it is entering its 100th year of existence is. Recent research based on newspaper reports revealed that the two teams officially met for the first time on August 8, 1921 in the Cooch Behar Cup, a tournament that was withdrawn from circulation some time ago. This fact was also recognized by ISL, who welcomed the two legacy clubs to their group this season.
ATK Mohun Bagan would definitely try to repeat the success of the first phase (2-0) against their traditional rivals and consolidate its position at the top. On the flip side, SC East Bengal will play for prestige and give their fans the chance to show off something this season. Ironically, one of the most watched events in Indian sport has to do without the fans in the stands again due to the existing pandemic situation.
“The derby is different. The attitude of the players, the pressure is different from other games as you have the opportunity to change the season with a win. It’s a dangerous game for us, ”said ATK Mohun Bagan’s coach Antonio Habas on the eve of the game. “We’re going to look for three points like we did in other games. It’s important that we stay at the top, ”added Habas.
SC East Bengal look better prepared compared to Mohun Bagan in their first ISL game.

Grant will stay in command of the derby as head coach Robbie Fowler has been suspended for suspension.
