MCFC head coach Des Buckingham has been pleased with the team’s resilience in recent games but believes there is still room for improvement. “We want to make progress this year and we know we can’t score like we did in the previous game. Chennaiyin started better than the previous match.
I didn’t start badly. they were better But as soon as we scored we came back and were happy with the game,” said Buckingham. “We still have a lot of work to do and we need to get more results in the next few games if we want to be successful this year,” he added.
Bengaluru FC are currently struggling to score. The Blues scored two goals in five games and became the first player in history not to score in three consecutive ISL matches. They have lost their last 4 matches in the ISL 2020-21 season.
The Blues average 0.4 goals per game and are 10th in goals per game. Roy Krishna and captain Sunil Chhetri will be responsible for the precision play in the back three.
“After the game on Friday, we trained hard and tried to do other things. As for the Mumbai game, it’s about what we have to do to win football again,” Grayson said.
“We plan to adjust several aspects that will lead to a real win in a close match. Because the final product has been lacking so far, we need to conduct clinical trials.”
Only one of the 10 ISL matches played between these two teams ended in a draw. The Blues have won 4 in a row and the Islanders have won 5 in a row. Bengaluru FC won the Durand Trophy after beating Mumbai City 2-1 in their last match.
