Striker analyzes a tie in the first leg of the Copa do Brasil round of 16 and says that the squad is assimilating the new game system
(updated at 00:36)
Flamengo had its best performance of the season, with offensive impetus when pressing the ball out of Fluminense. However, the first leg of the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil ended 0-0, at Maracanã, even with the expulsion of Felipe Melo at the beginning of the second half. Gabigol stressed that even with little training, the team is looking for consistency to progress with Sampaoli.
– I think every game is important for Flamengo. We seek this consistency. It is difficult, because there are many games and few training sessions. What we expect from the fans is a little calm, that they understand. We have a new coach, putting in a new game system – said the attacker, before completing:
– We want the crowd to crowd the stadium, as they always have. May they support until the end of the game. We have to push them back, score and win. We have to win – he added.
The attacker had a good performance and even hit goalkeeper Fábio’s crossbar. However, the ball did not enter, and Rubro-Negro lost the opportunity to leave the field with an advantage for the return.
The return game is scheduled for June 1, at 8 pm, also at Maracanã, but this time Flamengo will be in charge of the field. The quarter-final clashes will be decided by draw.
