Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Chennaiyin FC head coach John Gregory said, "Goa have a team that's very settled for a long time. Under Sergio (Lobera) for two seasons, they almost had the same squad. The one or two adjustments that they made have only made them a better team. There's no game more difficult than a first away game against Goa."
On the other hand, FC Goa head coach Sergio Lobera spoke about the importance of having talented players in the team. "For me, the performance of the Indian players is the most important. We always speak about foreign players, but I think it's very important to have talented Indian players. There have to be five foreign players in the first XI, which is why it's imperative to improve the level of Indian players. For me, it's impossible to win trophies without quality Indian players," he said.
