Bhubaneswar : Defending champion and Indian Super League 2018-19 champions Bengaluru FC will cross swords with Hero I-League 2018-19 champions Chennai City FC in the first quarter-final of the 2nd Hero Super Cup at Kalinga Stadium here on Thursday.

With the quality of players as well as the success of both sides this campaign, the encounter is unsurprisingly billed as the match of the tournament so far.

At the pre-match press conference here on Wednesday, Bengaluru FC coach Carles Cuadrat expressed “It’s a challenge and I'm sure it can be a nice game. It's nice to see the winners of two competitions go up against each other and it can be a good show for the supporters. We played a friendly against Chennai City FC at the Kanteerava Stadium, and they beat us in that game, so we know what they are capable of.”

Chennai City head coach Akbar Nawas voiced his concerns ahead of the tie. “We did not have good preparation, because we could not train during the last two days due to the field conditions. When we train today, we will have a better understanding of how we will shape up.”

Talking about the magnitude of the fixture, Nawas mentioned, “For me it is just another game to go and play. But for sure, Bengaluru are definitely the favourites - they are the best team in the country. They have the best players, the highest budget. They have been together for almost four or five years. To beat a team like Bengaluru will be very tough.” .
