In the second stage, Vitor Roque and Vitinho hit the post in the same shot. Afterwards, Roque suffered a penalty, and Terans converted to make things equal.

We were well organized, we had four very good minutes and the goal was somewhat disorganized. Overall it was a good game. Did not dominate the game. In the desire to score the goal, we had one or another mistake. The only fair would be a draw.
