The Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari admitted that the rival was superior in Athletico’s 1-0 victory against coritiba, this Sunday afternoon, at Couto Pereira, for the 13th round of the Brazilian Championship. The red-black commander, on the other hand, highlighted the team’s score as a visitor in recent games.
The Hurricane saw Coxa finish 24 times, with good saves by goalkeeper Bento, in addition to the lack of aim of the opponent. The Atletico team finished 11 times, most without danger. But in the end, Rafael William gave Vitor Roque a penalty, and Khellven secured the victory.
Coritiba had more chance of winning for what they did on the field. We suffer for their quality. We know how to value. By spirit, will, discipline, we managed to win.
