Magno Novaes: We really wanted to win against Troyes
SC Bastia goalkeeper Magno Novaes has spoke of his side’s desire to beat Troyes in Ligue 1, following their eventual 3-2 win on Saturday.
The 29-year-old helped last season’s Ligue 2 champions overcome Troyes in a thrilling encounter, which saw two red cards given.
Bastia had taken the lead twice, through an own goal and Modeste, but Brazilian striker Marcos equalised for Troyes on both occasions.
The home side eventually claimed all three points, with a third goal in the 88th minute, much to the relief of Magno Novaes and Bastia, who hadn’t won for five games.
The Brazilian told Sambafoot: "We really wanted to win this match to improve the point taken in Nice.
"I am happy to have won tonight but a little disappointed to have taken 2 goals.
"Even though we won, we need to be more efficient offensively and defensively."
Bastia are currently 12th in Ligue 1 and face 13th-placed rivals Ajaccio in two weeks time.
