Both teams last played a head-to-head encounter in December 2020 where the Highlanders registered a comfortable victory. NorthEast United were handed the lead in the 33rd minute of the game thanks to an own goal by Surchandra Singh as they headed into halftime with a marginal advantage. Khalid Jamil's men went on to score their second of the night in the dying minutes of the game as Rochharzela finished off Suhair VP's ball to end the match with a 2-0 scoreline in favour of NorthEast. While the Highlanders will be aiming to replicate a similar result, The Kolkata outfit will be striving for their revenge to prevent the fifth-place side to do a double over them. However, given the team's form, we expect NorthEast United to win the Tuesday night encounter.
Prediction: SC East Bengal 0-2 NorthEast United FC
