Sunil Chhetri After the Match

“I think we fought well. We got the two-goal lead. But we let in two goals. We are gutted as a team, it feels like a loss. The whole team thought we had three points in the game. We have to go back, see the goals and discuss it.

“Eight games, we haven’t had a win. I know I have to go back and train and give everything there. We are going to sulk for sometime and then get back to training. In football, winning is a habit. I don’t know what winning feels now. I sound depressed but we go and give our all and get a loss or a draw, it’s difficult.

“To be honest, I don’t know what brand of football we have under Cuadrat or Moosa bhai. We train well, apply ourselves. After every game we lose, we pull each other up. We haven’t won for eight games now, I don’t know.

“I try to be a good example but the only good thing about this season is the youngsters getting a chance. When everything is going well, you don’t see these youngsters get chance. Generally in a team like BFC who want to be in Top 4, they don’t get many chances but they are going to be playing next year now. It is good for the youngsters and will probably give them confidence for the next games.”

Hyderabad FC Head Coach Manuel Marquez After the Game

“We are happy because we were losing 2-0 but I think we didn’t deserve that score. We had very clear chances. The second goal for Bengaluru was a gift. We put a lot of offensive players in the last part of the game. In Bengaluru’s situation on a winless run, we scored the first goal and I think they got nervous.

“I think we are young and have a lot of talented players but if we aren’t brave and feel pressure of Top 4, we can play another sport. When these moments arrive, you have to be brace. If you lose, you lose, but you have to be brave. And I feel, today they showed that.”

Bengaluru FC Interim Head Coach Naushad Moosa After the Match

“Again the same problem, switching off. It was a two-goal lead and then conceding two goals in four minutes (sic). I don’t know how to digest that.

“Why I got them out was because Cleiton was complaining about his hamstring at half time and Sunil wasn’t keeping well, he didn’t even train yesterday, so I thought about resting them. I expected Semboi adn Naorem to do better.

“I myself don’t know. Imagine having a two-goal lead and getting in two goals. The team has really been fighting, I appreciate the way they have been playing but again, somewhere, I need to see the goals now and then think about it. When I saw the goal, I feel there was a defensive lapse and we just switched off. We can’t have four men and one person going in behind and scoring a goal.

“The idea for putting him there was we were struggling to cover the left side so with his speed, we could contain Hyderabad’s full-backs. He got a goal as well. It is difficult!

“Parag is very comfortable with the ball, he needs to work more on the defensive front. He needs to be more strong and patient. He goes for tackles and loses the ball. But he is a fighter and he is young and we need to encourage him. That’s all I can do now.”

What drama right towards the end! Bengaluru FC were comfortably leading 2-0 but then Naushad Moosa substituted Sunil Chhetri and Cleiton Silva and Hyderabad FC took more control of the game. Manuel Marquez put in Fran Sandaza and threw caution to the wind by reverting to a back three. But it reaped benefits for him. This will feel like a win for Hyderabad. Aridane Santana and Sandaza scored in a space of five minutes to hold Bengaluru FC to a draw. Bengaluru will be shattered by this!

A balanced half this one even though Bengaluru FC have the lead. Sunil Chhetri put Bengaluru ahead with a header off a perfect Cleiton Silva free kick delivery. BFC have looked like they have the spark and are looking dangerous whenever they are going forward. Hyderabad FC have had a lot of the ball but nothing decisive has come out of it and they have not a single shot on target. Hyderabad went close right before half time with a gorgeous ball from Akash Mishra to a free Halicharan Narzary at the far post but Narzary completely missed the target.
