Kitchee expected to beat East Bengal

Kingfisher are on four points from their five fixtures and have no chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the AFC Cup.

But for Kitchee SC it's a different story as they are on 10 points, and a win for them could take them to the top of the group if Johor Darul Tazim, with 12 points, loose against Belestier Khalsa FC, who are bottom of the standings on three points. 

Both teams had to share points in the reverse fixture, which was played at the Yuba Bharati Krirangan, Kolkata on March 10.

This is one of those fixtures that the result does not mean much to the visitors as weather they win or not they can't reach the knockout stage of the event.

Kitchee SC does have the home advantage and are expected to win. Plus they have the extra motivation of topping the group if results go their way which should give them an easier game in the knockout stage.
