East Bengal vs NorthEast United prediction, preview, team news and more ahead of the 2022-23 ISL clash 

East Bengal will take on NorthEast United in a bottom-half clash at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Wednesday, February 8. The hosts are languishing eighth in the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL) points table, while the visitors sit at the foot of the standings, having procured just four points throughout the 2022-23 campaign.

Stephen Constantine’s side bounced back with a 1-0 victory against Kerala Blasters in their previous game after losing four games on the trot. They are more or less likely to finish between eighth and 10th in the league table as seventh-placed Odisha FC are already ahead by nine points.

NorthEast United, on the other hand, have struggled from start to till date. The Highlanders have been an easy opponent to play against due to a lack of investment in the squad. Vincenzo Alberto Annese has not been able to turn the season entirely but has installed confidence relatively when compared to the side coached by Marco Balbul.
