The first half of Sao Paulo in the 1-0 loss against Santos tonight (21) for the Brazil national team did not satisfy coach Rogerio Ceni. In addition to the goal delivered, the tricolor wasted many passes and gave Pixie good chances in the first 45 minutes, which could be fatal against Flamengo, on Wednesday (24), in the Brazil Cup semi-finals.
“We couldn’t make as many mistakes as we did. If you catch Flamengo on a day inspired by them and you lose five passes, you lose the game in the first half by 3-0. You can’t cross passes randomly,” said Snee.
However, when evaluating the classics as a whole, the Sao Paulo captain was satisfied with the performance of the team, which, according to him, deserves a better result at Villa Belmiro.
“It was the Sao Paulo team that dominated the match. The first half had similar chances for both sides, the second they defended and attacked, while we tried to build the game at all times. But they were more efficient.” The coach said.
Due to the closeness of the match against America-MG, last Thursday (18), Ceni had to enter a mixed team against Santos.
Asked how he evaluated maintenance in three competitions, the coach said there was no way to despise any of them, but it was necessary to spare some winners.
“Having a team or not for three competitions is something we’ll find out over the rest of the season. What you can’t do is finish the game 64 hours early, ten players play 35 minutes with one player less and they want that. Repeat the guys here. Then I arrived on Wednesday and I don’t have the slightest chance” , sigmoid evaluation.
The next challenge for Sao Paulo will be on Wednesday (24th), in the first leg of the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, against Flamengo, in Morumbi.

Ferrari debut analysis
“I liked it a lot, he has good passing and checking. The defensive trio played a good game today. They were important today, they played several times individually, and they got the job done. I enjoyed his debut.”
And what was the talk in the locker room to get back to the second half
“We couldn’t make as many mistakes as we did. If you catch Flamengo on a day inspired by them and you lose five passes, you lose the game in the first half 3-0. You can’t get past the random passes. And Santos never controlled the game, not even In the first half nor in the second half. Sao Paulo. In the first half they had similar chances for both sides, the second they defended and counterattacked, while we tried to build the match at all times, but they were more efficient. We didn’t score good goals [no gol], We did not follow the play well, we received the goal. The second half, Pablo started very well, and Rinaldo was a bit more technical. We’ve made substitutions that we can, if we can, change more to get more energy and keep this or that player. But unfortunately, we don’t have all the professions in the world to do.”
São Paulo and Flamengo saved the day. Physically, are they the same?
“If any team reaches the same level as Flamengo, it is difficult to say. But we will compete, we have the support of the fans. We will try, even though Flamengo have the best team in South America, we will try to play inside our house and get the best result inside our house and go to the Maracana.”
Did you miss more shots on goal? Could it be missed against the Flamengo?
“We built well, we did the triangles on both sides, we did everything right. But when he got inside the area, we lost the timing. The first half, which was Igor, for example, Nikão was free. Wrong choice, many times. We appreciated The ball a lot, and we could have set the plays earlier than we did. The second half for Sao Paulo was very good, now we can’t score, that’s what worries us the most.”
What are you planning for the match against Flamengo?
“We tried to catch Diego and Leo, who played the defensive duo after Miranda’s departure, and the dismissal. We stopped Calleri because he is a guy who gives himself a lot and gets tired a lot. [defensores] The same or play with another defender, in the system we are most accustomed to. Some of those who played today cannot play the Brasil Cup, they are not registered. Many of those training tomorrow are athletes who start the match against Flamengo on Wednesday. Let’s think about it. You can see Flamengo coming to play at full force.”
