Next Wednesday (19:30), the Canaries have to reverse the 2-0 win made by Fla tonight.
Frustrated, Argentine coach Fabian de Bustos withdrew from the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro due to the 2-0 defeat suffered by his club FC Barcelona against Flamengo. A result that must be reversed next Wednesday (19:30) at the Monumental Banco Pichincha.
The Mingao He beat the bullfighters with a double from the left winger Bruno Henrique (21 and 38 minutes). In the second half, the visit suffered from the expulsion of midfielder Nixon Molina (47 minutes) and in the end saw the red Leo Pereira for an elbow that hit defender Luis Fernando Leon in the face (89 minutes).
In the rematch, the Canaries are obliged to get the victory by more than three goals and not allow the score to be scored. Florida, because the goal of the opponent complicates their goal, which is to qualify for the continental final.
Bustos, in the press conference after the painful fall, commented that “the tap is open. In our stadium we will be more comfortable and with our fans that will be an added incentive. I think we are alive and that’s how we feel.”
“Losing is never a good result, although it was difficult to compete with ten men against a team like Flamengo. In the second half I asked the boys to be combative,” the gaucho coach said.
Regarding the yellow’s lack of a goal, Bustos said: “In the first 25 minutes we had many goal cases. If we get to the scoreboard before them, the history of the game will change. They put us away in the second goal and it wasn’t the right way to position. To be at our highest level.”
“We wanted to score goals and score. We had our chances, and the goalkeeper (Diego Alves) was a character,” added DT, who suffered his third defeat in this cup. His first defeat in the group stage was against The Strongest (2-0) in Bolivia and his second. Against Velez Sarsfield (1-0) in Argentina in the round of 16.
Next week, Bustos noted, “we will face revenge in our home and with our people. We will strive to be effective in getting into the game and competing with the strongest team in the competition.” (Dr)
