Here. We played as we planned. Earlier, but we played on Monday night and traveled to play here. Then on Sunday at 4 pm. It’s very difficult and complicated. So I’m glad the boys didn’t. He played and shows they’re on target. Universidad played a good game, but didn’t They don’t have clear chances, only possession. We could have defined it before with more calm,” Bustos said.

“The highlights were the defensive packages and good work in the midfield and the attackers tried, but we didn’t feel comfortable in the first half. In the second half, with the changes, we felt more comfortable, more energy and we were better. Thinking, giving the ball to the wings and consistency in the crosses. Cattolica is very offensive, So we’ll have room for counter-attacks. We had four or five chances at the end, but we were in a rush to head up and we could have made the difference before.”
