Fatorda (Goa), 4 January (IANS). Former champions Bangalore FC have suffered two successive defeats in the last two matches in the seventh season of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) and this is the first time in the history of the league that Bengaluru, captained by Sunil Chhetri, scored a single point in two consecutive matches. Has not been able to take it.

Coach Carles Cuadort’s team will now face the in-form Mumbai City challenge on Tuesday at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda. Cuadort hopes that the break will help the team after a week.

“We had a lot more time this week and we will try to get three points,” Cuadort said. In the last two matches, the team was trying to create chances, but unfortunately could not score. The good thing is that other players are also scoring goals. This means that we are not dependent on any particular player.

Bengaluru have scored 11 goals so far this season, but eight of these goals came from the set piece. The former champion has also scored nine goals. He said, we will have to get better and not score goals because we have lost by one goal in the last two matches. You can lose when you score goals. Players understand that we are working in a very positive way.

Bengaluru has a poor record against Mumbai. The Mumbai team has not lost to Bengaluru for the past two seasons. Mumbai City is currently going through its magnificent form. The team has been unstoppable for the last seven matches while maintaining a clean sheet in the last two matches.

Coach Sergio Lobera believes that he has faced a tough challenge from Bengaluru. Lobero said, “I think this match is going to be more difficult than the last two matches.” Bengaluru’s team defense is very good. It will be difficult for us. We need to mold ourselves according to the situation.

Mumbai City have scored in every match in the last seven matches and this season they have scored the highest 13 goals so far. The team has scored the lowest three goals so far.

“We need to enjoy football and we need to focus on every match,” said Lobera. Now our focus is on the match against Bengaluru. We need to improve match by match.
