By Aaron Humes: The Belmopan Bandits Sporting Club had their first training session on Monday at Estadio Mercedes Norte de Heredia in San Jose, Costa Rica, as they prepare for Game 2 with Costa Rica’s Saprissa.
The Bandits will need to overturn a two-goal deficit after last week’s 3-1 home defeat at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium in Belmopan.
In the post-game press conference, coach Leroy Sherrier Lewis told us the Bandits had prepared for Saprissa’s 4-1-4-1 formation, but there were on-field difficulties.
“What we saw in the midfield – not pointing any finger – but what did you see in the first half in the midfield; they left number 8 alone, they left number 11 alone. In the second half, we adjusted a little and we played better. But when you have a plan, you need to stick to the plan; that’s the problem,” he said.
As head coach, he said any blame falls on him for the loss, and starting with training last Friday and Saturday’s comfortable victory over Premier League opponents Placencia Assassins, the players needed to be impressed with the knowledge that things are not over yet.
Game time is 8 p.m. today and BBN will have updates as time permits.
