“Six or seven minutes to go [quando Igor Rabello entrou], logical that they [Caldense], with the advantage in the game, the ball would be offered on the field side. As we had the team ahead, we would have to have a finisher together with Sasha. So, Igor [Rabello] he entered that role, he even had one or the other move that could have ended, but unfortunately it didn’t work “, explained Cuca.
Igor Rabello took the field in the 39th minute of the second half, but the Galo coach’s strategy had no effect. Cuca analyzed the athletic defeat in Poços de Caldas.
“A reasonably good first half. We had possession of the ball, involved the opponent and scored the goal, went ahead with a goal from Keno. It was not a first half of many opportunities. We played against a team perfectly adapted to the field. game, the way the ball rolls. A good team, well worked, who have a set already, not for nothing had already won important games in the championship. We took, in the first half, an advantage to the locker room, 1 to 0, and they in five, seven minutes of the second half, they managed to tie the game over a corner that ended up leaving the rebound “, analyzed.
“In a mistake of ours, in a ball out of ours, we ended up losing the ball in the head of the defensive area and the boy hit a beautiful shot that ended up giving Caldense the winning goal. Victory deserved for what they played. played badly, I don’t understand that Atlético-MG played badly, but didn’t play what he can “, completed Cuca.
Despite the defeat, Galo is still the leader of the Mineiro Championship, with 15 points in six games, the same score as América-MG, the next opponent in the competition. The setback in the sixth round took away the condition of 100% use of Alvinegro.
“Lack of joint, lack of mutual knowledge and, without a doubt, lack of rhythm of play, which gets caught up as time goes by. The important thing about this defeat is that the players feel a defeat and have an ideal notion of what we mean and the size of our responsibility this year. If this defeat is felt, and we raise our guard on Sunday, and we play a great game, we will understand that these are natural things within a difficult championship like this “, reiterated Cuca.
