Pedro regrets Flamengo’s draw: ‘We knew it would be a complicated match’

Striker Pedro comments on the difficult clash between Flamengo and Millonarios, for the debut of the 2024 Copa Libertadores.

After the 1-1 draw between Flamengo and Millonarios in Bogota, Colombia, in a duel for the Libertadores, Pedro commented on the match, underlining the importance of scoring in this competition in matches away from home, at altitude.

– Today we scored, but obviously we wanted to win. We knew it would be a complicated match, at altitude, where the game is faster, the ball is very fast. Very different from what we are used to, even breathing sometimes doesn’t come. But without excuses we came ready to try to win and, unfortunately, we succumbed. We must continue to perform well to seek first place in the group.

When asked about Millonarios’ qualities, the Rossoneri striker underlined the good play of the Colombian team, who gave the Brazilian club a lot of work.

– It’s a very fast team, with a lot of quality. We knew we would play a complicated match at altitude and they played a good match. It was a good duel, unfortunately we couldn’t win, but scoring points is important in the Libertadores. Now it’s time to continue with positive thinking to achieve more victories.

Flamengo will play the second leg of the Campeonato Carioca final against Nova Iguaçu next Sunday, at 5pm (Brasilia time), at the Maracanã. For the Libertadores, Rubro-Negro’s next opponent will be the Palestinian team (CHI), on 4/10, at 9.30pm (Brasilia time), at the Maracanã.
