East Bengal defeated Real Kashmir by a lone goal in Srinagar on Monday, leaving arch-rivals Mohun Bagan to need just one win against former champions Aizawl FC to win their second I-League title in five years.

Mohun Bagan will face Aizawl FC in Kalyani on Tuesday. If they win, they will clinch the I-League title with four rounds to go.

Bagan are the undisputed leaders with 36 points from 15 matches. They have 13 points more than second-placed Punjab FC (23 from 15 matches).

In Srinagar, East Bengal scraped past Real Kashmir 1-0 in an ill-tempered match in which two home team players and one from the visiting side were sent off. Spaniard Victor Perez scored from a penalty in the fifth minute of added time, which secured vital three points for the Calcutta giants.

Unhappy with the refereeing during the match, the RKFC team management later lodged a complaint with the All India Football Federation.
