Under head coach Robert Dante Siboldi,
On Wednesday night, Siboldi's team will face Necaxa in Aguascalientes for a pass to the final, where
"The Semifinal, for me, has always been the most important part," said Siboldi on Tuesday after training. "The reason is that you are close to something and it's still far away. Tomorrow is a key match because if we win, we put ourselves in a final which would be the result of the work we have done. But we're facing a great rival in Necaxa who has shown great moments, with great players, a good squad, (the team) is very well run and has the same enthusiasm that we do, so we have to have a good approach tomorrow to stay on track for the title.
"The priority is the two tournaments," he continued. "We have a number of points in league play and that allows us to dedicate our effort to Copa MX, while at the same time we are trying to get more in the league to have a better standing. I'm not saying we're already qualified, but we have a higher chance
Siboldi went on to say that football always offers second chances, and advancement in Copa MX will be the perfect way to bounce back from the 3-2 loss to Atlas in Guadalajara, where
"We played a bad game (against Atlas) and now we can redeem it," he said. "That's what I like about Mexican football, anyone can beat anyone. It's a very competitive tournament where if you blink and stop doing what you've been doing every day, the other team, however low (in the table) it may be, will reach you. We try to see it like that. We're turning the page, learning from it, and we're prepared to give our best for a good game."
As for what went wrong for
"Without a doubt it leaves a lot of room to learn," he concluded. "We must continue insisting on our idea, on possession, recovery, to cover the spaces. It was the one match (this tournament) where we were the most uncoordinated between the lines. We lost all hope of pressing forward, we generated spaces for the opponent and what happened happened. I commend the reaction of the team after being 3-0 down to continue looking for the draw."
Los Guerreros and Necaxa will kick off Wednesday night at 9:15
