Bengaluru FC Interim Head Coach Naushad Moosa After the Game 

"It was simple, try to play attacking football and keep the ball. I think the first goal got to the players and they were down but in the second half, they went for it completely.

"Now, the only thing is to try and work with our juniors, give them opportunities and prepare them for the future.

"For today's game, it was very important to get those three points. It was a crazy game. When we talk about philosophy, if you see the reserve team play, we want to play possession-based football. It will take some time for that to get to the first team.

"We still don't want to give up, seven games in hand. Hyderabad, Jamshedpur was a draw too. Except for Mumbai and ATK, all other teams are close. Winning the game today would have been great but we have to keep fighting. But we have to try and give more time to the youngsters."

Odisha FC Head Coach Stuart Baxter After the Match

"Both teams struggled to perform to full ability. I think Bengaluru didn't play like they would want to. Likewise for us. We had a couple of great chances from set piece and some chances otherwise as well. May be 1-1 makes sense.

"It's winning the game. You get confidence from winning, not drawing. Letting people draw from set pieces make you angry, not confident. We have played better than we did tonight. When you get one-on-one and score, the confidence goes through the roof. When the keeper makes saves, you breath a sigh of relief and you're just hanging on.

"I didn't make changes because they were so dangerous from set pieces and we had our biggest men on the pitch. The second goal would have wrapped it up. They were coming on to us so much that I thought we could get a second in transition.

"We looked at the way things have been going for Bengaluru and us and we decided to play almost a four. We thought we'd go at them and try to go hard. With a bit more quality, may be we could have got more. May be they got used to it and did better but I was disappointed that we couldn't hold on."

Hero of the Match Cleiton Silva After the Game

"I think both teams wanted to win the game and wanted the three points. We gave everything on the pitch and I think it was entertaining for everyone.

"We did our best, we can't always win. We have had bad results but in the next games, we can improve.

"The target is just to win the next game. Top 4, we don't know. We just want to keep winnning."

HALF TIME

And that's it from the Fatorda after 45 minutes! Diego Mauricio's eighth minute strike is the difference between the two teams so far. Jerry Mawihmingthanga's smartness at the free kick and then Arshdeep Singh's two big saves have given Odisha FC the advantage. Bengaluru FC were caught sleeping for the goal but have attacked Odisha FC in response to falling behind. It will surely be an interesting second half.

After the exit of Carles Cuadrat, interim coach Naushad Moosa has not been able to turn things around. "A win gives us three points and it will push us higher in the table. Just a matter of winning one game. Just that one win is very important for us. The dynamics will change entirely," said Moosa. "Of course, the (position on the) points table is something we are not used to. They know the importance of each match now. We are being positive. Apart from the top two, all are very close. We have to keep fighting," added Moosa, who stressed on the importance of not conceding easy goals if they had to make it to the playoffs.

Bengaluru had a good game against Kerala but the result wasn't in their favour. However, Moosa believes that his side can win against Odisha, if they take their chances. "If you ask Odisha, they will say that BFC is not in good form. But if we maintain that (level they showed against Kerala), we can win against Odisha. It depends on converting those chances. We keep trying to take advantage of it and remain disciplined at the back. It is important that we don't allow them to play," he added.

Odisha FC head coach Stuart Baxter believes his side will have to defend strongly and play their best in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. "We had chances to beat bigger clubs like ATKMB but to do that against anybody - not just Bengaluru - we have to defend well, take our chances and play our own game. If we do that with quality, I think we have shown that we can run everybody close," Baxter said.
