Djaniny - We have to be vigilant against Pachuca to come out on top

12 de Abril del 2018 4:15 pm.

Club Santos Laguna clinched a berth into the Liga MX playoffs last Sunday with a convincing 3-0 win over Queretaro, but the team maintains the mentality that it must close the regular phase of the tournament with as many points as possible.

Djaniny Tavares, who remains the league's leading scorer with 13 goals in 15 games, says he credits the team's success this tournament to "concentration, a lot of communication, hard work, and a special connection between teammates."

The Cape Verdean striker insists that it's important to keep moving forward with the mentality that each game must be won, regardless of their assured spot in the playoffs. 

"We always want more and obviously we have to continue working, staying focused on each game," he said.  "We have to win and get as many points as possible. "

With nine more points on the line, los Guerreros can overtake the first place spot with a win should Toluca lose or draw in Morelia, and a win at home the following week against Pumas would see them go undefeated in all home games for the 2015 Clausura. After that, a win at Estadio Azteca against Club America could see them close the tournament as super leaders. 
On the commitment at the door, he highlighted the complexity that Pachuca will represent at Estadio Hidalgo: "We have that notion that Pachuca is a good team, has good players. It will not be a simple game, we are mentalized from the beginning that it is not easy, so we have to be vigilant to give a good game
