– The system we’ve been training since leaving the Paulista Championship. Because of the return of Arboleda and the fact that Diego (Costa) is about to return, in addition to Rafinha who can also play the role, we decided to work with three defenders.

Off Calleri, I think this match David and Erison were the perfect formation, because they are strong players, to attack for space, as was the first goal. Luciano is about vacillation and playing between the lines. The selection proved to be a good one, and Erison scored twice. David also helped a lot in carrying those balls up front.
