ATK Mohun Bagan FC and Mumbai City FC continue their Indian Super League (ISL) rivalry in the Durand Cup, as they face off in a group B encounter at the Salt Lake Stadium on Wednesday.
The Calcutta giants need to win this match to regain confidence after their 2-3 loss to Rajasthan United FC.
“Just like our fans, I too was upset after the loss to Rajasthan United,” ATK Mohun Bagan’s Spanish coach Juan Ferrando said.
“But I was not frustrated... We need to improve, both in attack and defence. Mumbai are a tough side. But I know my team. We have to be cautious in defence and utilize our chances.”
