Unlike in the table, he said everything before starting the game. Atletico is a team infinitely superior to current Valencia and that was too much for Javi Gracia. The technician assured me that this was not the ideal field to recover the lost points.

It was not. Too much difference Starting the game as we have done, putting ourselves ahead has given us the emotional support to compete as we have done. We have had chances and controlled the rival. In the second half.

The spaces have opened and we have suffered. The second goal has done us a lot of damage, the team wanted to continue competing, but with spaces, they felt comfortable. The team has tried, but we leave with the pain of not having been able to get something positive. Likewise, Wanda is not the best place to recover lost points.

Lack of aggressiveness?

They are situations that come from imbalances, from small errors. I think without wanting to point out anyone or say that it was due to lack of forcefulness. They are things that could be improved, in the second goal it was more virtue of the final shot with such little angle, and the ball is very well adjusted. It is also a virtue of the rival.

Defensive problems

It’s a bit of everything. With experience, situations are handled better. In the first goal, we could have cleared before Joao anticipates. It can be improved. All goals come from lack of force, bad actions, or placement. They are scoring errors, but In the opponent’s goals there has been a lot of merit from the rival.

Dose players?

I think we are not in a situation to say that we focus on one thing or another. Each game is a reason to try to improve and give our best version. With the frequency of games that there are, we will have to dose.

We do not distinguish between some. and others. Throughout the season there are changes, it depends on different circumstances. We go to the Cup with all the illusion. We will choose eleven starting players, to compete and give our best version. We cannot miss any opportunity, to give our best version compete and improve.
