It was an unexpected thing that happened to the team, an unusual effort to recover in a game that they did not know how to handle, the team came with a great dynamic game that today was left in an abyss of solutions, they could not turn on the effectiveness with which they had been working, they were pending to be able to achieve a good result for the team, they could not give credit to what was happening.

It was a crushing defeat for the hopes of Erik ten Hag's team, who trusted in his team to be able to show that they were a better team, he normally plays his best eleven on the pitch, on this occasion he could not innovate to surprise the rival, the strategy had already worked for him in other matches, now he could not do anything with a team that was unwilling to look for a positive result.
