The former Villarreal players think that in these matches he will put some players who don’t have that match chances for them and he will give introduce players like Ofentse Nato and Kingshuk Debnath in the starting lineup.

The coach told that:

"I think we played a great match. I think all my players played well. I wanted to give the likes of Nato, Debnath a run in. I am happy with (Juan) Belencoso too. He is a striker and yes I am not happy that he missed four chances. I am sure he is not happy too. But that happens,"

This season the Atletico de Kolkata have only won one match at their home soil and against Delhi Dynamos and that’s why the Spaniard told in jest that he wished they have all the semifinal legs outside of Kolkata.

He voiced: "It's not good that's true. In seven matches (we have) only one victory. If you want to criticise me, yes it's true that the results have not been good. I think we had chances to win, but sometimes things happen in football. The problem is the mistakes we did in some matches like in Goa, Delhi, against NorthEast United here, in Chennai, we have to learn from those mistakes. Then Kerala (Blasters) goal in the last match. The aim is to score more goals and enter the final.

"I wish both legs of the semifinal were away matches looking at the way we played in these 14 matches,"
