Gustavo Quinteros appreciates that, before today’s match at 9:30 p.m. for the Copa Libertadores playing the last option to qualify for the eighth round against Jorge Wilstermann, he was able to add four more trainings that seek to physically balance the team. «We were able to train more intensely and well. I think we’re going to be better off than the previous game,» said Argentine DT in reference to the 5-3 fall to Unión Española, where the Reds scored three goals in the second 45 minutes.
Quinteros says that at least that should not be repeated tonight, and on the contrary, the level must be raised. «We will be able to enjoy the maximum effort for longer in the match. Let’s hope to find the same game as the first half against the Spanish Union where we generate possibilities.» To advance to eighth colo Colo must win and hope that ideally paranaense will defeat Peñarol in Montevideo tonight.
With a past in Bolivar and in the selection of that country, DT has knowledge of the Wilstermann. «It’s a well-constituted team, they’re standing in the league, but they played two friendly ones. They have good defensive solidity, they got a point in Brazil (against Paranaense). We’ve worked on an offensive role so players can try to breach that defense,» he explained.
The albos recover Felipe Campos, Ronald from the fountain, Leonardo Valencia and Javier Parraguez. Thus, he would form with Brayan Cortés; Oscar Opazo, Campos, Juan Manuel Insaurralde, Brayan Véjar; César Fuentes, Valencia, Gabriel Suazo; Marcos Bolados, Esteban Paredes and Gabriel Costa.
