The Uruguayan Guillermo Almadacoach of the Mexican Pachuca, stated this Monday that his team will have a tough game against the Philadelphia Union of the MLS, on Tuesday in the round of 16 of the Concacaf Champions Cup.

“It’s going to be hard and complicated; “Philadelphia is among the top teams in Concacaf,” explained the strategist.

The Tuzos, five-time Concacaf champions, drew goalless last Tuesday with the MLS club, and now they intend to impose conditions in their stadium, 2,242 meters above sea level, to access the phase of the best eight of the championship.

“We need to have freshness and precision in handling and give priority to collective action over individualities“said the technician.

With the Venezuelan Salomón Rondón, leader of the scorers in the Clausura tournament in Mexico, and the Moroccan Osussama Idrissi, the Tuzos will go out to hurt the rival, but, according to Almada, They will be attentive to the defense because the Americans have good forwards.

“We must avoid any carelessness; They have precision in the last meters and footballers who make good decisions“, noticed.

Regarding the possibility of Union having forward Julián Carranza back in its lineup, the Mexican coach had words of praise for the South American, however, He considered that without him on the court, the opponent will still be very demanding.

“Carranza, the Argentine is a great soccer player, although Philadelphia has other great players. Whoever it is, they are going to demand that we be careful in defense.“, I agree.

Midfielder Erick Sánchez, a member of the Mexican team that won the last Gold Cup, highlighted the mentality of the Tuzos, who have worked with humility. “We have to respect our house”said.
