Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE Coverage of the Calcutta Football League tie between heavyweights East Bengal and the dark hoses George Telegraph.

The Red and Golds would look to make amends against Telgraph to cover uptheir disastrous performance in the second period of the Extra Time period, which attracted large scale criticism from the Footballing Fraternity across the Maidan in Kolkata. However, coach Bastob Roy and Technical Director Subhash Bhowmick assured that there is nothing to worry about in the Pre-Match Press Conference.

Johnny Acosta is yet to sign in the Indian Football Association (IFA) office and is expected to sit out today as well.

The George Telegraph was quoted saying that the side is all pumped up for the game and they would not leave a single space for the East Bengal midfield which has been exemplary in the league so far. 

The game kicks off at 4:30 PM in the East Bengal Ground.
