last visit to Atletico MG Into Minas Gerais, in the state’s first stage, it was a 1-0 win over Democracy JV, and situations are similar to other away games: a very different stadium than Gallo is accustomed to in Mineirao and it’s CT. In analyzing the victory, coach Antonio Mohamed saw a first period of study, and a development in the complementary stage.
Extremely heat, adapt to the field. The team, in the second half, came out with another force, aggressive. We understand where the game will be. Well, we managed to win. That’s why the game is 90 minutes long, we are a smart team. The first half was to study, and in the second half we went out massively for victory – he said.
Gallo practically secured leadership of the classification stage, giving them the decision advantage on their home ground in the semi-finals. Classifieds are selected – Athletic, Cruzeiro and Caldense. All three play on Sunday, and they need to decide what position they will be in. Mohamed is still in the game against a democrat, and indicated that Atlético need to speed up goals.
“Today, it was difficult to get the last pass in the last 3/4 of the field. We have to improve the qualifiers. We have to regain the strength to score a goal from before.”

The Mamudao Democracy Stadium garden has undergone a renovation. But the pitch was high, which impeded the delivery of the ball. Antonio Mohamed witnessed something similar in Nova Lima, on his debut, and indicated that on-field conditions were the biggest obstacle for his team.
– Our team trains on other grass, other than that, with short grass. So these fields make it difficult. It is another sport. But we have to come and compete with the situation. We know the shield we are defending and we play very hard. That is why we were able to win the match and come close to securing the first place in this tournament that we want to win – and he added.
