Boca Juniors fell 2-1 to River plate in a new edition of Argentine soccer superclassic and for the Xeneize technician, Sebastian Battaglia, the expulsion of Marcos Rojo was decisive: “The referee conditioned us at 17 minutes“.
“The referee was too sensitive. Playing as a visitor, staying with one less at 17 minutes is hasty,” added the DT after the defeat at the Monumental, on date 14 of the La Liga Tournament.
Next, the best phrases of Battaglia in dialogue with ESPN:
“The expulsion of Rojo conditioned the game for us. It was doubtful … Three minutes later they scored a goal and then it was all uphill. The referee conditioned us at 17 minutes”.
“The referee was too sensitive. Playing as a visitor, staying with one less at 17 minutes is hasty.”
“For the show it was not the best either. We ended up conditioned in a game that we thought differently.”
“It was difficult for us to accommodate that man less. Perhaps if we did not lose the game so quickly, it would have been otherwise. The goal ended up hitting us.”
“The referee rushed into yellow and then ended up sending him off.”
“Edwin (Cardona) ended up paying for something that no player likes. That was how the game happened …”
“We try to control the game, but River handles the ball very well. It has a lot of intensity.”
“We go game by game, we have to keep adding. There is a long way to go.”
