Maximilian Falcon sees the glass half full and, beyond the draw of colo colo against Alianza Lima in Peru, he believes that the Cacique can learn from mistakes and the alba party in Lima to stay on the way to the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores 2020.

Colo Colo remains second in the table, but giving up the two points from a game that he was able to secure in the first half leaves the Whites’ destiny in abeyance because they must face River Plate and Fortaleza in the remaining duels of Group F.

“It’s a bitter taste, we were much superior throughout the game, we had very clear chances, a penalty, we were able to finish earlier. These matches are about details, you make a mistake and everything turns around”, said Wig after the duel.

Falcón added that “we are calm because we always try to do what we train, my teammates run, they leave everything and that is very important. We are going to continue doing it, we are second and the illusion is intact”.

On the other hand, the Uruguayan defender had praise for the rival, especially for forwards Hernán Barcos and Wilmer Aguirre. The second was the author of the draw for the Peruvians.

“All the rivals in the group have their kind of players, I don’t know whether to speak of being weak or not. The approach of the teams can influence, we propose a lot from the outside and Alianza has weaknesses there, perhaps that is why it is noticeable, but they play well in the middle, they have a great striker who holds up well (Barcos). All the rivals are just as good”, explained the defender.

Maxi Falcón states that “Hernán Barcos is a player with a long history, this tournament for me is a nice challenge to measure myself against these great forwards. I try to give one hundred in every game and I think I’ve done well. Controlling him more was not the most important thing, but Aguirre, the two strikers and those who go outside. And Aguirre ends up scoring the goal, the attack is the strongest thing Alianza has”.
