Defender Junior Alonso analyzed this moment of the team. Since Cuca’s arrival, there are nine games, he sees Atlético better in the matches, however, failing in the finalizations.

– Apart from the first half against Internacional, we always played better, with more possession, more shots. We’re having maybe a little bit of bad luck, because we have 20, 22 shots per game and we score a goal. The opponent arrives twice and scores a goal.

In a press conference, after the tie with Bragantino, by 1 to 1, at Mineirão, in the last round, coach Cuca was asked about what is needed for the team to hit the finalization of the plays. He cited the emotional as one of the obstacles to the decision-making of athletes.

– In Goiânia, we had more than 12 shots and scored two goals. Against Bragantino, more than 20 and we scored one. It’s not about the lack of work, it’s very emotional. I played, I remember that, many times, when I was in a bad moment, for me, it was more complicated to do the simple. We have great players who can earn a lot more and aren’t. But it’s not because they don’t want to. It’s that emotional. It doesn’t matter if you’re 18, 20 or 35, the emotional plays in there.

Atlético returns to the field this Saturday. Face Avaí at 4:30 pm in Ressacada. Galo, seventh place, seeks reaction to get closer to the G-6. Santa Catarina is in the relegation zone, in 18th position.
