The outcome of Libertadores was not as the Santos fans wanted. This Saturday, Santos lost 1-0 to Palmeiras and got the runner-up. Shortly after the final, defender Luan Peres regretted the defeat, but praised Peixe and stated that the group is proud.
“We are very proud. We wanted to be champions, but only one wins. We are proud of the campaign, beating LDU at altitude, Grêmio, Boca Juniors. Very happy even with the second place. We wanted the first, but it’s upside-down. Nobody imagined it. that we would be here, but Santos is big and needs to be respected “, he said.
The goal of the palmeirense victory came only after 53 minutes of the second half, when the clash already seemed to be heading for overtime. And according to the defender of Alvinegro, the main mistake of the team of the Baixada was precisely the lack of attention until the final whistle of the referee.
“Final is won, not played. Truncated game. There was no attention until the end, more submissions. We didn’t play worse than Palmeiras, at least equal. Both had 50%. Unfortunately their ball went in and we didn’t. A detail defined the match “, finished.
