One of the potent claimants of this season's Hero I-League title, Kolkata Giants Mohun Bagan AC are set to play their second clash against Aizawl FC at their home, in Match 10 of the Hero I-League 2018-19 on Saturday. Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata, the home ground of the Mariners will host the match on November 3, 2018.

Sankarlal Chakraborty's men shared the spoils with Bino George's Gokulam Kerala FC in the season opener, despite getting a 1-0 lead in the first half. GKFC's pressing football and Lalchhawnkima's suicidal goal brought Bino George's army back in the game to secure one point over the visitors. Now, the Maroon and Greens will be focusing to take hold of all three points against the club from Mizoram, on Saturday's clash.

On the other hand, Aizawl FC lost their first encounter of Hero I-League 2018-19, against Shillong Lajong FC. Naorem Mahesh Singh scored a brace to seize all three points for Lajong. Though Ansumana Kromah scored from a penalty, it was not enough to secure at least a single point as the visitors lost 1-2.

In their second away fixture, Aizawl FC will try to improve their performance and definitely, they will be eyeing all three points to get back to the winning track. But, it will not be an easy task for them as their opponent is well organized, and much more experienced.

Mohun Bagan AC vs Aizawl FC: Key Players

Mohun Bagan AC: Pintu Mahata

Pintu Mahata

Pintu Mahata displayed an apposite performance in the very first match of the I-League, against Gokulam Kerala FC. Plenty of chances were created by Mahata for the Maroon and Greens. Mahata's pinpoint crosses from the wings towards Kisekka and Dicka might come up as a threat to the opponent.

Aizawl FC: Ansumana Kromah

This versatile playmaker has the ability to play anywhere on the pitch. He can play as an attacking midfielder, as a striker and can be lethal from the left wing. Once Kromah was one of the most reliable members of the Mariners family and hence, well experienced Kromah knows about the strategies and tactics of the Bagan coach.
