– In the next match we need to analyze the performance of the players. Some are in pain. Let’s see if we can make any changes. I don’t think we’re going to make big changes because it’s a knockout, qualifying. It is important to be able to convert the result and get the rating. I hope we are fine.

“Bustos wants to use Vila Belmiro to prepare for all the competitions” says Bruno Gutiérrez.

Regarding the match against Curitiba, Bustos wants saints To have their situation more similar to that of the first time that the two teams faced each other, for the Brazilian championship, and not to repeat the mistakes of the first match of the Brazilian Cup. On that occasion, Pixi won 2-1, also at Villa Belmiro.

I don’t want it to be like the second game, but rather like the first. One we played well, the other played poorly. In the first half (from the second game) we defended very poorly. (Curitiba) a good team, with good players, they have fast ends, they play well, good dead ball. There are many things to analyze and we must be meticulous to achieve the result. Let’s try to make our fans happy.
