Uruguayan defender Gerardo Alcoba says it's fundamental for los Guerreros to close their final home game of the regular season with a win.
"It is important to emphasize that we are very strong at home so we need to continue in this form and close with a win," he said.
"We also need to correct some mistakes," he added. "We clearly know where we have been wrong, both individually and collectively, so to move forward in the best way in the Liguilla, we need to work on those areas."
After a succesful tenure in South America in his native Uruguay, Argentina, and Ecuador, Alcoba began his Liga MX career in 2015 with Pumas, where he was eventually the team captain before joining Santos at the beginning of 2018. When asked about his former club, he said he knows their aggressive style well and that los Guerreros are expecting a tough rival.
"Taking into account that they have to win no matter what, they will come very aggressive, strong, and with a physical game. We are ready to face an aggressive Pumas."
