For the coach of Estoril Praia, “it was a very complicated game with many players from Marítimo B. They presented a game system with a defensive line with 5 elements, controlling the side aisles well. Estoril Praia started very well, we released the pressure, we started the ball moving quickly and against the current of the game, Marítimo, following a set ball, scores the goal. The team was uneasy, started to leave the game plan and it took us 10 to 15 minutes to get our heads together and start playing again according to what was planned. After a certain time, we changed the way we left and managed to be more dangerous again and with fairness, we reached the goal ”.
“In the second half we started very well, we had clear occasions to reach the advantage. Meanwhile, the opponent was playing with 10 and from then on it became more complicated, there was less space to play, Marítimo was only concerned with defending, but even so we managed to maintain our game model. What makes the difference in the result was the failure to take advantage of the opportunities we created in the second half ”, said Vasco Botelho da Costa in statements to the Estoril Praia website.
“In my opinion, the result is very unfair for what we produce, but we will continue to work, Sunday we have another game we want to win”, concluded the 31-year-old.
