East Bengal have lost all five of their AFC Cup group phase matches, conceding 12 goals and finding the net just once themselves in the process.
And it doesn't look as though things will get any better for the Indian outfit when they host Kuwaiti side Kazma SC at 1100 BST on Wednesday morning.
Kazma were comfortable 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture at the Al-Sadaqua Walsalam Stadium in Kuwait City, and are in prime position to qualify for the knockout phase of the competition.
The Kuwaitis currently occupy second place in Group B and although they are level on points and goal difference with third placed Al Oruba, they boast a superior head-to-head between the two and only need match Oruba's result tomorrow to progress.
Milan Macala’s side suffered their first defeat of the campaign at home to Arbil last time out but will be more than confident of coming away from this one with maximum points.
