Speaking to ANGOP at the end of the morning training session behind closed doors, the coach admitted that the opponents have a good technical quality, although he believes that all of them are well-rounded and should present sufficient arguments to oppose the oil team.

Despite being optimistic in an excellent performance, the 'military' coach acknowledged that his team will need to be "very strong", especially in the defensive sector against a "very strong" opponent in the offensive transitions.

He said that Petro is an opponent who runs a lot and can easily create difficulties, hence the intention of being more cautious in the defensive sector and avoiding disagreements in the outcome of the match.
