SC East Bengal started off the season very poorly but have found their mojo back. They walk into the match after clinching a narrow 1-0 win against Bengaluru and are now unbeaten in their last five matches. With 2 wins and four draws from 10 games, SC East Bengal have accumulated 10 points and helped themselves to the 9th position on the ISL table.
Kerala Blasters FC, on the other hand, have registered 9 points from ten matches with 2 wins, three draws, and four losses against their tally. They sit a slot below their opponents in the tenth position and will hope to leapfrog past them with a win on Friday.
Both the teams played out a draw during their previous meeting in the ongoing ISL campaign. SC East Bengal got the lead in the 14th minute of the game thanks to Bakary Kone's own goal. Kerala Blasters' Jeakson Singh saved them the embarrassment and cliched a 90th-minute equaliser off Abdul Sahal Samad's assist as the match ended with both the teams splitting the points.

Both the teams are separated by a single point and will see the match as the perfect opportunity to get the better of each other and move higher up in the rankings. Kerala Blasters have a rather shaky defence that has conceded the most amount of goals in the Indian Super League and will have to sort it out. We predict a win for SC East Bengal as the result of this encounter.
Prediction: SC East Bengal 2-1 Kerala Blasters FC
