East Bengal take on South China in their AFC Cup Group H encounter tonight at the Hong Kong Stadium, Hong Kong. Both teams have got off to poor starts in the tournament by pickup up just one point in 2 matches thus making this tie a must win for both teams.

South China have former English Premier League stars Nicky Butt and Mateja Kezman in their ranks but the two haven’t been able to drive South China to victory. With their last match having been played 9 days ago, South China will definitely be the fresher team and the favorites to win.

East Bengal meanwhile come into this tie after a magnificent victory over arch rivals Mohun Bagan in the I-League, narrowing the gap on leaders Salgaocar to just 2 points. Coach Trevor Morgan will look to his star player Tolgay Ozbey to provide inspiration to his side.
