Atlético Nacional was left in Group A of the last home run, led by all-against-all, Águilas Doradas and completed by Alianza Petrolera and Deportivo Pasto. Due to the rival teams’ history, Nacional should have no problem advancing to the finals of the tournament, however, three teams complicated the green in the regular stage.
Paulo Autuori spoke about his rivals and called for respect and restraint, understanding that it is not going to be as easy for Nacional as has been said in the country’s press and made up in Purslane’s opinion. In particular, Águilas Doradas has been a team with considerable growth, being the revelation of the tournament.
Their coach is Lucas González and assistant Alexis Henriquez, both of whom went through Nacional, one as a coach and the other as a player. One of the things that Aguilas love the most is the way they play football, treat the ball well and go to propose in any area of the country.
In recent days, González participated in an interview on the VBar Caracol program, where he talked about home runs, sending a message to the Nationals so that they don’t think they are so favored: “We are not a small team. Yes, we are a young team. We have earned respect with the players as we have gone to the biggest stadium in the country and we are not defeated, we have beaten America as well. We are ready to fight any opponent one to one Gone”, commented DT.
Why do they call Lucas Gonzalez the Colombian Guardiola?
The young tactician was trained in Barcelona and Australia, where he followed Guardiola’s ideology, with Lucas explaining his style of play and training: “There are different ways to win, we try to get the ball as far as possible from the opposition. Wanting to take over the team is possible because I studied football in Barcelona, what Cruyff did with Ajax and Barcelona caught my attention and how Guardiola builds on those ideas which he has carried into his career “, he remarked.
