Popularly dubbed the Kolkata Derby, East Bengal vs Mohun Bagan is the oldest football rivalry in India between two of its most historic clubs chasing bragging rights over the city of Kolkata. Mohun Bagan, of course, have merged with ATK and will play as ATK Mohun Bagan.
ATK Mohun Bagan have already kicked off their ISL 2020-21 season with a win against Kerala Blasters in the opening game while it will be the first match of the campaign for East Bengal.

ATKMB’s Michael Soosairaj is out with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, making the midfield a little light on pace and trickery.
