East Bengal will look to end their 2011 AFC Cup Campaign on a high when they take on Indonesian outfit Persipura Jayapura at the Yuva Bharati Krirangan in Kolkatta today.

East Bengal are unbeaten at home, however having picked up 2 points in 5 games, they are virtually out of the AFC Cup.

“We will rest four or five players… But I haven’t decided yet and will know only tomorrow (Tuesday). We have other games (I-League) also coming up,” East Bengal coach Trevor James Morgan said referring to their crucial I-League encounter against Dempo SC on the 15th of May.

East Bengal are missing a few key players . Penn Orji and Tolgay Ozbey are suffering from injuries while Mehtab Hossain is serving suspension and Saumik Dey will be missing the game due to personal reasons.

The Indonesian side breezed past East Bengal 4-1 in the first leg. They are tied at 10 points with Chonburi FC and will look to win to top the group.
