After Boca’s defeat suffered in Colombia about the end of the game against Deportivo Pereira for the fourth date of Group F of the Libertadores CupCoach Jorge Almirón left his impressions.
“We were better than themwe lost the ball in a play on offense and then came the penalty that our goalkeeper was able to save in a very good way. It was difficult to accommodate ourselves after the saved penalty. This will leave us many lessons, surely”, said the technician.
The defeat did not limit Boca’s chances to access the round of 16 of the Libertadores: he only postponed it, since he leads the group with Deportivo Pereira, both with seven units, followed by Colo Colo with five and Monagas de Venezuela with two.
When Almirón was asked if the team makes mistakes in the passing game, he said that he did not see “weaknesses” in that aspect. “Until now, they have not scored headed goals, we had to take marks,” declared the DT.
“The game we thought happened. In some areas when they were going to press, Villa, Briasco and Benedetto were hand in hand and we didn’t take advantage of it, there was no precision. The changes were not tactical, if not because of the physical. We lacked from the middle forward, “he closed.
by his side, Marcelo Weigandt justified staying in the center that Angelo Rodríguez headed to decree the Colombian victory. “It was a play where the penalty was executed; then they played fast and we were slow to settle in. During the week the coach will review it and correct it“, he pointed out.
