In this way, Mais Querido was champion of the Libertadores under-20 thanks to good investment in the youth categories. Thus, coach Mário Jorge commented on the strategies used during the tournament and defined the most difficult opponent for Rubro Negro in the competition.

"We used a construction with the goalkeeper who played the role of defender, so we had an advantage at the first moment. This created a little difficulty for us to analyze, but in a strategic plan for the game it worked very well. We decided: 'let them play, but then the guys there won't be a passing line'", said Mário Jorge, in an interview with 'FlaTV', this Monday (25).


"It was something we did and they really didn't know what to do, which ended up giving us the long ball. For each game, we had a different plan, but against Aucas (EQU) it was the one that created the most discomfort for us, for sure", concluded the coach.
