“We put attention in every department. The thing is, I would like to always finish the game and be seated here talking about the chances we missed because it means the plan was good.” – Jose Riveiro told TimesLive.

“We played the game the way we wanted to play it. Today was the first time and it works like this especially in the first half.

“In the second half, the chances had a different nature, coming more from transition play and quick attacks.

“But in the first half I think you could see a version of the Orlando Pirates team we want to see during the season.

“Of course, I would like to score more goals and be seated there in the last 10 minutes of the game more relaxed.

“You can be sure if we continue to create this amount of chances, it’s going to happen (we will score goals). You can be sure we will score more than one goal.”
