Ahead of the game, KBFC head coach Ivan Vukomanovic, along with Adrian Luna, presented their views.

"It doesn't change a lot. We know our goals, we know our objectives, and we will continue working. We are a competitive side but what bothered us most was those easy goals we conceded. It was from our mistakes and not that the opponents made any great tactical move," he further added.

"It was quite simple. I told them that we lost the game because of our mistakes. Whenever we lose a game, if the opponents beat us by tactical movements or any other superior footballing moments, then we shake hands and admit that they beat us because they were better," he concluded.
