Clash of the titans...again

Tomorrow Bagan play their Federation Cup semi final against their arch rivals East Bengal FC in Ludhiana. Twenty five days have just elapsed after the historic 4-3 Derby win for Bagan in the CFL and here they are again pitted against East Bengal. The Mohun Bagan team hotel has become a mini-hospital with players falling sick in turns. Though Bhutia and Barreto are still not 100% fit they might take the field tomorrow but the Bagan fans will most probably miss the services of Venkatesh who was the hero for the last Derby match. Bagan are ready for a tough battle and assistant coach Satyajit is confident about a possitive result. In another development, Dempo beat Churchil brothers 2-0 andstorm into the semis and are to face Mahindra Utd. Dempo has arguably the best striking combination with Ranty Martins upfront along with Edeh Chidi with Beto as the playmaker. Venkatesh: the hero of the last derby match might miss tomorrow's match.
