The America Eagles Club They were one minute away from scoring a golden victory as a visitor in the first leg of the quarter-finals CONCACAF Champions League Against Portland Timbers, but a controversial penalty scored against Al-Karimat ended in a draw that left the coach upset and ‘hurt’ Santiago Solari.
In addition to the penalty kick scored against them, America had to deal again with a biased referee who condoned at least two packages to locals because they didn’t take yellow cards for Timbers who were already booked.
At the end of the match, at a press conference, Solari assured that they would be hurt, as it is difficult to understand that after playing a good match they were unable to win due to the lack of a mistake on their part.
“It’s painful for us and the players, we have come this far, the best team available has come. We did a great first half, which was to be a good second half, but given the other people’s attitudes, it was not the case.” Clear.
In response to a question about whether he believed there was a slogan in arbitration against Club America, Solari did not want to argue and only said that it was the press that would assess such a situation.
Indiecito commented: “You judge it, I’m not going to express myself about it, you have the space, the capacity, the images and you have slow motion and you can do an analysis of everything, of all actions in general.”
America will host Portland Timbers next Wednesday, May 5, at Azteca, a match in which they will have to make sure that North America does not score more than one goal, because a draw with any two or more goals will give it. They have a rating for those of the MLS.
The Eagles will score 0-0 in the second leg or any favorable score; In the case of 1-1, the match will be decided on penalties.
