“I am confident that we are going to reverse what we did in the Cup. I am sure that with the Brazilians we will do better games and with America we can win, draw or lose, but it is one of ours. With the Brazilians you have to row to play a good game and bring us a good result. I have confidence and the team is fine, the loads are being well tolerated, ”he said, facing the remaining four games in Group E, which has them as bottoms.
He also analyzed the budget difference in the tournament: “In Chile there is no team that can stand out in the Libertadores, today, in this context and under these conditions, we are more to stand out in the South American.

For certain countries it is easier to access a semifinal of the Copa Sudamericana than of the Copa Libertadores ”.
