CFC PRESS RELEASE : Down below are quotes from the post-match press conference of Chennaiyin FC player-manager Marco Materazzi.

On losing 3-0 : It is a very good result for Kerala and we have a lot to do in the second leg especially because the third goal in the end makes it even more difficult for us. But it is important to believe in ourselves and try to fight back on Tuesday.

On if it is mission impossible: Nothing is impossible in football but it will be important not to concede in Chennai. The first half will be very important and we will have to take our chances.

On why the team lost today:I think we had some chances in the first 20 minutes at 0-0. Then Kerala Blasters started playing well. They effectively scored three goals in five minutes although the first was offside but conceding so many in a short span is not normal. I think Kerala deserved to win today but I don't know about the scoreline.
