The former champions played current champions Tusker but neither side scored as the match ended in a stalemate. The Brazilian feels it could have been different though for his team if officiating could have been 'fair'.
"I was not impressed with the referee, he was lenient with them (Tusker), but cautioned my players anytime their was contact. Even fifty fifty challenges did not go our way, it affected the game but we want to focus on our coming assignment. We are not happy with a point though."
