After defeating Guadalajara at the Akron stadium in the first leg of the quarterfinals with a score of 2-1, the technical director of Atlas, Diego Cocca, was emphatic in pointing out that his team stood on the rival’s court to give a blow of authority
“I’m left with the fact that we won again in this stadium twice in a row and we are getting used to winning, not to see what happens, we are getting that word of losing out of our heads and we gave a blow of authority. Chivas had their options and so did we, we had to make the third and it ends up being a rare 2-1, but I highlight the personality of the team, it was superior to Chivas and that is worth a lot”, explained Cocca.
However, the Argentine coach assured that the series against Guadalajara is not finished, and it is that the chiverío has high-quality players who could give them a scare on Sunday at the Jalisco stadium in the second leg, for this, Atlas cannot leave confident.
“We have to close the series, it is not closed, it is not finished, we took an important step, we won as a visitor, we have the sporting advantage, but we cannot trust ourselves, it is a team that has transcendental players, with barbaric speed, we are going to respect the rival, we are going with everything to close the series and hopefully we will see each other in a semifinal”, said Cocca.
