    Had Mohun Bagan been not punished by the Indian FA, they would now have 25 points from their 18 matches and would be in the 10th place in the league-table.

    In the last five encounters between these two sides, Mohun Bagan has won one match while Sporting have clinched the bragging rights in two. In the other two fixtures, honours were shared.

    Odafa Okolie is fifth in the scorers’ list in the I-League. However, if you leave out the goals scored from penalties, he is the third in the list.
