MOHUN BAGAN TO FACE THE CHALLENGE OF PUNE
Mohun Bagan will play against the second placed team in the current edition of I league at Kolkata, Pune FC on tomorrow evening. The match promises to be a match of strategies as both the coaches Sanjoy Sen and Karim Banshrifa are on a target to earn full points in order to advance further.
A win on Saturday evening will place Pune FC at the top of the league table, while Mohun Bagan are in a target to win against Pune FC in a high profile I league match.
While talking to media at the pre match conference Karim Bensharifa the Pune FC coach said,"It was a pleasing performance from the players in the last few games. We have played some fantastic attacking football and I think the players have showed a lot of dedication and discipline in these games, while interacting Bensharifa added, "They are a good side and I rate them very highly. We have already faced Bagan twice this season.
The game on Saturday will also be a tough match given that they will be playing at their home. But we too mean business, and are prepared for the challenge. On the contrary Mohun Bagan are eager to continue their unbeaten run after a win against Mumbai FC and a draw at Goa against Salgaocar. The team really depends on the individual efforts of Sony Nordy and Katsuni Yusa. The inclusion of Piea Boia in the final eleven are still doubtful.
The defense will be marshaled by Nigerian Bello Rasaq along with the experienced Anwar Ali and Pritam Kotal. The efforts of Lalkamal Bhowmick, Jeje Lalpekhlua and Balwant Singh will also provide options across the offensive line.
The two teams played twice in the current season. Pune FC won at Kings Cup at Bhutan, but the match at the Federation Cup ends in a draw.
