WHAT HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT THE GAME

“Just be alert. He’s got a lot of qualities, a lot of assets. He’s good in the pockets, good at turning and attacking space. He’s got pace, good finisher, good in the air. Just try to be solid defensively. I’m not a big fan of man-marking. Our two, three centre-backs can handle it well. The best way to try and control it is if we have the ball. — Pineda on Castellanos

“Right after the game (Thursday’s loss to the New York Red Bulls), it’s tough because everyone is frustrated with the loss. We have to look forward and look at the positives. We played very well (Thursday) but there were two small details which turned out to be costly. The atmosphere of the group is very good. Everyone is positive and motivated for the next game. I spoke to my teammates and told them to look forward to it. –Matheus Rossetto
