– For us it was a good match, because we had many chances to score the goal. Unfortunately, in the first half, we conceded a goal that we couldn’t concede, but we’re going to play at home now and we’re going to play a much better game. Let’s create more chances and score more goals – designed.

The return game will take place next Wednesday, March 15, at Mineirão, in Belo Horizonte. To qualify for the Libertadores group stage, Atlético-MG needs a simple victory – a new tie takes the decision to penalties.

Hired at the beginning of the season, Paulinho reached his fourth goal this Wednesday with the alvinegra shirt. Galo’s attack duo, made up of him and Hulk, is responsible for 12 goals in the season.
