With a goal conceded before the first minute on the clock, Tricolor had a complicated life in the match. Fernando Dinizcoach of the Rio club, regrets the circumstances of the game.

“We conceded a goal very early. We conceded the second goal with everyone behind, we couldn’t take it. The team tried to play, played under high pressure all the time and managed to come out most of the time. Congratulations to the team, they lost to a great team and now it’s time to think about next season”, said the technician.

However, even with the negative result, Diniz was proud of his team, who performed in the way they were used to. Facing a billion-dollar powerhouse, Fluminense managed to dominate possession for more than half of the first half and did not surrender to a football that was not what they had always practiced.

Diniz also spoke about Fluminense’s level of confrontation, as they are not used to facing teams that play like the Citizens. “We don’t always have the opportunity to play against teams of this quality. The more you play, the more chances you have to learn and improve, but we will continue to improve even if we only play teams of this quality a few times.”said.
