“We improved after 30/35 minutes, at the end of the first half we created three or four very dangerous situations, with crosses,” said Santos, insisting that the game was “not easy .”

“At the break I told the players to be patient but not too much. The game was so blocked that only with patience the goals will not come,” said the coach, who noted that after the intermission he improved and ” the penalty came .” , but then “conceded goals that came from nothing”.

Now we have to watch the game calmly and study what we have to improve. What should we have done? That was easy, we had to keep the ball and go on the counterattack, we had chances to score the fourth goal. You have to take the ball from your opponent, who is broken and wants to tie”, he specified.

“The three points are important. With another victory we can move on,” he added.
