Mohammedan SC vs FC Bengaluru United: build-up
Mohammedan SC and Bengaluru United will lock horns in a battle of supremacy and will look to enter the quarter finals as group leaders. Both the teams have remained undefeated in this edition, so far. The Group A match will take place on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, at the Kalyani stadium from 3:00 PM IST. It will be streamed LIVE on the addatimes app.
Both the teams have already qualified to the next stages, having won their previous two games and are currently on six points. In spite of being a dead rubber, both the teams are expected to not take it easy and a competitive game is expected. They will like to carry the winning momentum going into the next round.
The Black Panthers’ Head Coach, Andrey Chernyshov shared his thoughts before the game and said, “We are preparing for a tough game. This will be the game for the first place in the group. We want to win. I hope it will be an interesting game.”
Richard Hood, Head Coach, FC Bengaluru United spoke about star player Pedro Manzi and his equation with the team. He said, “There is a lot said about the portability of star talent and Pedro puts a lot of those theories to rest with how quickly he has gelled and adapted within the team environment. Transfers have an underlying debate of the right player versus the best player for the team – while Pedro ticks both those boxes for us.”
The top two teams from each group will qualify for the quarter-finals scheduled to kick-off from September 23, 2021.
