"It is sad what has happened in Chennai due to heavy rain, which caused loss of property and lives. We had to shift our home semi-finals to Pune. Now we are looking for the win so that we can dedicate it to our Chennaiyin FC fans and the victims, who have backed us from the start," Elano said.

FC Goa coach Zico gave credit to his boys for reaching the final. "Now that we have reached the final we do not want to miss this opportunity to win the title in front of our home crowd who have supported us in good and bad times," stated Zico.

Chennaiyin FC coach Marco Materazzi said there was no doubt that FC Goa will enjoy home advantage. "We are looking forward to the beautiful game and we will play an entertaining game to win tomorrow," stated Materazzi.
