In a press conference after the match, Franco regretted the setback, but acknowledged the poor performance of Dourado and stated that the opponent deserved the victory.

– Today we were in debt mainly in the first half, in which we were not able to maintain the same performance that we had been showing in other games. In the second part, we managed to balance things out, we improved in some aspects of organization, in our attitude. At the moment we conceded the goal, we were managing to have our arrivals, we had a dangerous chance with Valdivia. We conceded a transitional goal, which we know Inter are very strong. But today Inter deserved the victory.

The plot of the duel could have been different. In the 44th minute of the second half, the referee awarded a penalty by Edenílson on André, but the VAR recommended a review and the bid was annulled for lack of Valdivia on the Inter defensive midfielder at the origin of the play – Central do Apito said that the penalty should have been maintained.

Dourado’s assistant criticized the refereeing and recalled the defeat to Palmeiras, in the 17th round, also surrounded by controversy. At the time, Cuiabá complained of a foul in Valdivia, but the video referee did not request a review.

– In the matter of refereeing, there is another controversy, we are uncomfortable with it, because it took a point from us today. Although we didn’t deserve the draw, in other games we deserved it and it was also taken away from us, like against Palmeiras at Allianz Parque, in which we suffered a clear foul and VAR didn’t even call for review and here they called.

– The feeling is of revolt. Once again, they got in the way of our goal. It was very important for us to leave here with a point. We clearly know that VAR acted. The referee was very confident in taking the penalty. He could have called the foul earlier, he was too close [do lance]. We reviewed the bid, it was not enough [para marcar falta]football is a contact game.
