Male (Maldives), April 27: Needing just a draw to qualify for the pre-quarter-fil of the AFC Cup, Bengaluru FC take on Maziya Sports and Recreation Club at the tiol Football Stadium here on Tuesday.

The Blues sit second on the Group E table with nine points from four games, five more than third-placed Maziya who have played an equal number of games. Indonesia's Persipura Jayapura have already booked a berth to the last-16 while Singapore's Warriors FC have already been elimited.

Coach Ashley Westwood said his team would be going for the win keeping in mind the bigger picture of coming out as group leaders.

"Winning the group is something we want to do because it means we get a favourable draw in the next round. So, we will be trying to win the game against Maziya as we will against Persipura.

"We are a new club and fresh in this tourment, so we want to win as many games as we can and make a me for ourselves.

"We will be approaching tomorrow's game in a positive manner which is something that you are always guaranteed from us," said Westwood at a media briefing here on Monday.

Shankar Sampingiraj scored a dramatic injury-time winner when Maziya came to Bengaluru in a game that ended 2-1 and while Westwood says his side were confident, they aren't taking anything for granted. IANS
