Fortunately for both NorthEast United FC and East Bengal, the Indian Super League (ISL) is a closed league for now. There's no relegation. All 11 teams in the ISL 2021-22 will compete in the next edition. But that will not spare them the blushes. They are the two worst-performing sides in India's top football league. And now, they fight to avoid the proverbial wooden spoon. (More Football News)

The NorthEast United vs East Bengal clash on is of mere academic interest for the neutral. But for them, it's a fight for pride. Who wants to finish last! Both NorthEast United and East Bengal know too well that this game is a virtual shootout to stave off a rock-bottom finish.

As things stand now, Khalid Jamil's NorthEast United are 10th with 13 points from 19 matches, while East Bengal are 11th with 10 points from 18 games. If East Bengal beat NorthEast United and Bengaluru FC in their remaining two outings, Manolo Diaz's men will finish on 16 points but a win for NorthEast tonight will ensure them a 10th spot finish. So, all to play for.
