    Kingfisher East Bengal FC v/s Selangor FA
    Team News:-

    KEB - Coach TJM will start with Andrew Barisic & Edeh Chidi upfront & Sanju,Mehtab,Pe­nn & Dika will Be in Midfield & Khabra,Uga,Raju ­ & Saumik will Be in Defence!
    TJM Confirmed that He will Start on Gurpreet Singh Sandhu at Goal!

    SFA:-
    4-2-3-1 is the preferred formation but Selangor are also known to employ 4-4-1-1 where Ramzul Zahiniplays just behind young striker Azmi. International winger N.Kunanlan on the left side of midfield along with Jusoh are key orchestrators of the Red Giants midfield. With the use of 4-2-3-1, the full backs have the space and the license to sprint up the flanks and bombard the box with crosses.

    @samiam except the 6th march match of EB which is now on 27 feb and the 5th march match of CB which is now on 26th feb, all other matches will be as sheduled earlier.

  • So... here we are. 7 hours away from game time. I dont know why but I have a strange feeling that Churchill Brothers can pull it off.

    We are in East Zone and it is always 50-50,If both the teams give their 100% they can win.

    Less han 6 hours to go for the big match vs Kitchee SC. Do you think the Red Machines can get a positive result out of this match?

    There is a chance. For Churchill Brothers this will probably be there hardest match of the season. Even harder than playing East Bengal away (which turned out easy in the end). Churchill Brothers will be playing the reigning Hong Kong champions, a team which boasts a ton of Hong Kong internationals and some good foreigners which include the Pakistan captain (and former EPL player) and a bunch of former 2nd and 3rd tier Spanish players, away from home, with international travel, and a weaker squad than before.

    Churchill Brothers could have really used Bilal and Akram as they have experience internationally. Beto would have been great as well for leadership and to create. However if Chhetri can connect with Henry then maybe we can hope for a draw.

    I am more excited though on the fact that we could see 21-year old Sanjay Balmuchu and 20-year old Bikramjit Singh make there debuts in international football. It is good experience for them.

    Both Sanjay and Bikramjit play the defensive mid role. So its good to have them, but without Beto it looks like a lost cause. Lenny will have to put in a splendid performance even to expect a draw. For me its 2-0 to Kitchee, which is a good result for CB considering the circumstances and the turmoil in recent times.
