Atlético came with the proposal to defend and go on the counterattack, and that, at certain moments , it is difficult to control. The team is attacking, sometimes, and it is a little disorganized in this sense”, started the Corinthian captain in the mixed zone.

I’m happy for everyone’s commitment and for the victory”, he commented.

You have to have a good head. I wasn’t annoyed with wax, but with the guys getting around the ball in the fouls”, concluded Cássio.
