Aizawl, Dec 12: Defending champions Aizawl FC will be favourites against low-key Churchill Brothers in their first home fixture of this I-League football season here on Wednesday. On their way to clinching the title, Aizawl FC scored six goals and conceded only two goals against Churchill Brothers last season, collecting maximum points against the Goan side.
Aizawl's Portuguese coach Paul Menezes reiterated that they will try to retain their title and they will fight for three points in every match.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference Menezes said, "We will play the way we played in the Mizoram Premier League. Sometimes we have to defend we cannot attack the opponents all the time."
He added, "Several key players have left us but I hope we can form a strong team this season. After collecting one point against East Bengal I expect three points against Churchill Brothers." "Andrei is our focal point in attack and it is a good thing that he will be available against Churchill. " Menezes added. IANS
