With 39 points from 19 matches, East Bengal is just one point behind leaders Chennai City FC (40 points from 19 matches). The Kolkata giants will need to win their final match against Gokulam Kerala FC in Kozhikode on Saturday and hope that Chennai City FC either draw or lose against Minerva in Coimbatore on the same day if they want to lift the trophy for the first time.

Both the title-deciding matches will be played at the same time at 5 pm on Saturday. In order to claim their first I-League title in 15 years QEB must have to win the match and at the same time, CCFC has to draw or lose.

On the other hand, Minerva Punjab’s Ranjit Bajaj had assured that they will never let CCFC win and they will try their best.
