cougars He has experienced firsthand what it is like to play midweek in the concachampions and then having to play the match corresponding to the day of the MX Leagueso they know that Pachuca He will arrive tired and they will seek to take advantage of this situation to tame the current champion.
The Tuzos will arrive at the Estadio Olímpico Universitario after being eliminated against the motagua in the Concacaf Champions League last Thursday, so they will only have two days to recover physically and get to this matchday 12 as well as possible.
However, the university squad is clear that it is very difficult for their next rival to be 100% for this commitment, since they went through the same thing a year ago when they were also classified for this tournament.
“I think it happened to us last year when we were in Concacaf. In the end, having two games a week is exhausting and we have to take advantage of it, they come from a game two days ago, perhaps not training much today and tomorrow traveling We have to take advantage of the fact that they played with the starters and that they will wear out,” said Santiago Trigos.
Despite the fact that the people of Hidalgo may be diminished in this commitment, the auriazul youth squad knows that it will be a difficult match:
“It’s going to be a very close and very fast match. We know what Pachuca is like, we have to handle that situation (the possibility of losing players for the next day due to a warning) in the best intelligent way possible.
We have to go out and win, in the end we have people who, if that circumstance happens that they could be suspended, they can make up for it perfectly, so I don’t think there is any concern, rather I think it is to win and do what we have to do”.
