If we want something then we have to go out and try to get it, says Bengaluru FC coach Albert Roca.

Bengaluru: Churchill Brothers FC Goa, who finally opened their account after a hard-fought draw against DSK Shivajians, will be cautiously optimistic against title favourites Bengaluru FC, whose air of invincibility and high flying run was cut short by a 2-1 defeat against Kingfisher East Bengal.

The respective results saw Churchill Brothers FC Goa move up to the eighth position, above Chennai City and Minerva Punjab, while Bengaluru FC find themselves in the fourth position behind Mohun Bagan, East Bengal and Aizawl FC. However, Bengaluru are still the team to beat and a defeat after three straight wins means that the defending champions would be desperate to put things right as they take on the Red Machines.

“We want to get back to our winning ways again. We know how difficult tomorrow’s game is going to be. If we want something then we have to go out and try to get it,” Bengaluru FC coach Albert Roca said. As far as the Goan side are concerned, they will be looking to build on the positive performance against DSK Shivajians which saw them walk away with a precious point. However, they find themselves up against a star-studded team like Bengaluru FC but their head coach suggested that his team will not be intimidated by the big names.

Churchill Brothers don’t have any major injury concerns while the defending champions do have some names, especially in defence, in the injury list. The kick-off is at 07:05 pm at the Tilak Maidan in Goa and the match will be telecast live on Ten 2.
