"He is a man who brings us many things offensively. Of course, these situations are reflected in the game. He is going through a very good moment. We lost that situation and I tried to make up for it. Atlas plays with a line of five and I tried to do it with Galindo and Saucedo. We did it at times and I think we could have had a chance there. Favio Álvarez will be the one who can be recovered. The rest, I don't think they will make it against Saprissa," he concluded.
