On Wednesday night (15), the Athletic Jorge Sampaoli came up against Muriel’s impeccable performance and was tied with the Fluminense in Mineirão. The tricolor goalkeeper made a game “almost perfect” and secured the 1 to 1 in the final score. It was the first draw for the Rooster in the tournament, who had lost four games and won the other 10. Arana, in a post-game interview, gave a general alert in the squad.
“In the first half, we did not enter the way we were entering the other matches. Brazilian Championship is very difficult, so it can’t be silly, but we continue. The group has been working, trying hard, and in the next game we can’t be silly to start without attention, but to start all matches as we started in the second half ”, said in an interview with TV Globo.
Despite the draw, the Rooster remains in the lead of the Football, with 31 points from 15 games. As a result, the alvinegra team has a leadership threatened by Flamengo. If you win the Red Bull Bragantino, the carioca team will reach 33 points in the leaderboard. Atlético return to the field next Monday (19), at 8 pm (Brasília time). In Pituaçu, Sampaoli’s team visits the Bahia, for the 17th round.
Sampaoli also said: “Two different times. In the first, the team was very unlit. First time favorable to a team that came to play the game we thought, which was to counterattack, steal fast and leave quickly for the attack. We were unable to connect the attack. The second half, I think it was one of the best second times for the team ”.
