Robin Singh spoiled Bengaluru FC's chance to get three points against Hyderabad FC when he scored a late equalizer to end the match in a 1-1 draw. Carles Cuadrat showed concerns about Bengaluru FC's chances to qualify for the semi-finals if they continue to drop points like this. Cuadrat added that Bengaluru FC dominates most of the match but fails to get the three points from the clash, making this an area which they need to work on. Cuadrat pointed out Bengaluru FC's weakness when he said that there is a lot of improvement required in the side's defence.
According to the 51-year-old, Bengaluru FC have a lack of emotional control during the last moments of the match. Cuadrat said that the players commit a lot of unforced errors when they shouldn't. The Spaniard insisted that his side should avoid making those petty mistakes, which allow other teams to create chances and score in the end moments. Carles Cuadrat wants his side to learn from the past and strengthen their mentality in the upcoming games.
