In the analysis of the match, the strategist stressed the number of offensive variants with which his team created danger in the visiting goal, as well as the lack of aim.
“In the first half we did not deserve to go at a disadvantage because we created many goal options, fortunately in the second period we reacted and went to the front, but the advantage could be wider if we had been more forceful.”
Guillermo Almada also spoke about the way his team should plan the second leg of the quarterfinals next Sunday during his visit to Monterrey.
“We are going to go find the game, it is not in our style to throw ourselves against our goal. We are going to propose because we like to play and show our face, we proclaim with a football to go to the front and thus we must play the return”.
The helmsman also regretted the injury suffered by Colombian Juan Otero.
