Kolkata Derby: I-League Season, Mohun Bagan Vs East Bengal




The first Kolkata derby of the I-league season is currently being played between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan at Kanchenjunga Stadium in Siliguri. As per the reports, the result of the match did not satisfy the fans as the teams played out a goalless draw at the jam-packed Stadium.

At the end of the match, both sides failed to convert the opportunities despite having their fair share of chances throughout the 90 minutes. The game got off to a careful start with both sides apparently comfortable with ensuring least amount of damage.

East Bengal striker Willis Plaza and Bagan's Pritam Kotal were at the end of half-chances early in the game, with neither managing to convert them into goals.

Kolkata Derby, locally known as Boro (means big in Bengali) match, is the football match between Mohun Bagan and East Bengal. The two clubs currently meet at least 3 times a year, twice in the I-League and once in the Calcutta Football League.
