BENGALURU, March 10: Bengaluru FC have fought and won many battles at home, but the biggest one awaits them on Monday night when they take on NorthEast United FC in the decisive second leg semifinal of the Indian Super League at the Sree Kanteerava stadium here.
In what was a game of two halves at Guwahati in the first leg, Carles Cuadrat and his men were handed a 1-2 loss by the Highlanders. The defeat meant the Blue�s poor run of late has continued with their last five fixtures yielding just a single victory and three defeats. A draw now won�t do.
�We�re ready for a big game. We�re in a good mood and we have the feeling that here in Kanteerava in front of supporters, we can give them one of the nights that we will remember through the years,� said Cuadrat.
Bengaluru will be buoyed by the crucial away goal scored by Xisco Hernandez at Guwahati as they look to enter the final for a second year in a row. The away goal means a solitary goal victory should be fine for the Super Cup champions. Anything less will see the favourites crash out. The Bengaluru coach will look towards Miku and Sunil Chhetri to step up at home as the Blues look to overturn a one-goal deficit. � IANS
