Mohun Bagan leave for Damascus

Mohun Bagan today will leave for Damascus to meet Syria's Al Karama in their 2009 AFC tie. Al Kamara, like Bagan is one of the oldest football clubs of Asia and is a hot contender for this year's AFC Cup.
Barreto out with a back injury will be replaced by Bhaichung Bhutia, but Bagan without Barreto, the team is down on confidence. Karim has been trying hard to revive the players from the two back to back defeats in the I League. Bagan coach confessed that this will be a very tough match for Bagan without Barreto, but also mentioned that AFC Cup, as of now, is not their priority- its the I League that is more important.
On Barreto's injury, the doctors opined that Barreto will be match fit after atleast 15 days. That means, Bagan will miss the services of the magician in the first two AFC cup ties and probably the match against Chirag Utd.
Bagan will be leaving for Syria with almost the same team that played against Churchill Brothers.
