COACHES REACTION BEFORE THE MATCH
ATK MOHUN BAGAN:JUAN FERRANDO
“It is a big opportunity for us to enter the next round, the players are very tired, but our target remains to get three points. Every game is different, for us we need to concentrate on the new plan for Maziya. Our target remains to register a win against Maziya, we don’t want to concentrate on the result of the first game of the day. We are professionals."
“The Maziya team come from an incredible league, they always perform very well. The plan is to intercept the transition between the wings. They are very compact. And it's difficult to find spaces. After their win against GKFC, they are surely very motivated.”
MAZIYA SR: MIODRAG JESIC
As I said before the first match, we will try our best,” said Jesic. “We hope we get a good result tomorrow, the atmosphere in the team is good, and that makes me happy.
“We had good scouting before we came here, and we know we are playing against quality players. We won’t comment here about the strengths and weaknesses of ATK Mohun Bagan, but I will share it with my team. Most important is how we play tomorrow.”

" We learn about points to improve, and against Bashundhara we will try to do our best. My team is a good team, a good club. At this moment, I want to concentrate on that.

BASHUNDHARA KINGS: OSCAR BRUZON
"Big match, nice venue with the home team planning a do-over game. We will stick to our plan, it will be important to hold the first 30 minutes, and then go ahead with our plans. ATK Mohun Bagan are a team still in transition. They need to adapt more to the coach's plan. We know they are struggling at the back. But I am sure the coach has identified the struggles, and we will not get complacent."
"We did what we had to do in the first game and now, it will be about controlling the game against ATK Mohun Bagan. If we can do that, we will do well tomorrow."

A brace by Luka Majcen in the 50th and 63rd minute and a goal each by Rishad P and Jitin MS did the magic for Gokulam. ATK Mohun Bagan equalised twice through Pritam Kotal and Liston Colaco but the cental defense of the Kolkata side failed to created any impact in front of the creative move of Gokulam Kerala FC.
Both the teams had a number of chances in the first session. The easiest chance of the match wasted by Roy Krishan at the 15th minute of the match. Krishna shoots wide of a cross from Liston Colaco with only Rakshit Dagar at his mercy.

COACHES REACTION IN THE PRE MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE:
JUAN FERRANDO (ATK MOHUN BAGAN)
“For us, it is important to have qualified, but it is also important to play well tomorrow. Its important for my players to enjoy the game. Gokulam are in high performance, we have had three weeks to put in the work, and I am satisfied with the preparation. To play at home is amazing. The supporters are a big advantage, but on the pitch, we will be playing a strong team. We are working hard to be ready. "
“It’s not a disadvantage that the other three teams are champions of their respective leagues, we finished third, but we are a big team, with a very good squad. It’s going to be XI against XI, playing in the same weather conditions. We aren’t under any pressure playing against champions," added Ferrando."
ALBERTO ANNESE (GOKULAM KERALA FC)
“We both have 11 players, everything is possible in football. We know the quality of their players, but I know my players well. We know our strengths and power, and we will play for the win. Personally I am a bit emotional, the budgets are different in ISL teams, and us. But budgets don’t matter to players, I am very involved in this game, commitment, respect towards opponents are important but we will not make it easy for ATK. Tomorrow, we will play for a win."
