I-League: Sporting Clube de Goa vs Salgaocar FC - Preview

Margao: Sporting Clube de Goa is locked and loaded to take on their arch rivals Salgaocar in an exciting Goan Derby, here on Thursday.

Clube are high on confidence after beating the in-form Bengaluru FC in their previous match while Salgaocar had a good long 10 day break to regroup after their first point against Aizawl FC.

Clube's Mateus Costa said:"We had a good match against Bengaluru FC and we are looking forward towards carrying the same form into this match. But we are not taking it lightly, every match is different and every set of opponents have different tactics. Salgaocar is a good side with fine players, but we have an equally talented side."

Clube captain Odafa Okolie said:"More than scoring goals, it's important for me that my team comes out with 3 points."

He further added:"Our players have displayed good character on the field. I have received good support upfront and it happens in every department. We support each other throughout and that helps in achieving the team goal."

Salgaocar coach Santosh Kashyap said:"The right attitude is what matters, I have asked the players to keep a positive attitude and rest will follow."
