While Mohammedan Sporting have pretty much fallen away from the CFL title race, they are yet to play their two most important matches of their campaign - against heavyweight title contenders East Bengal and Mohun Bagan. With the two big clubs, who played out a draw amongst themselves on Sunday, they are now tied in terms of points and goal difference. So whether they beat Mohammedan Sporting, and by how many goals, will go a long way to decide who wins the league.
A win for the Black Panthers ahead of those two crucial, highly andticipated Kolkata Derby fixtures makes the CFL title race even more spicy than it was before.
