Following an unexpected goalless draw against the Natal Rich Boys last Saturday, Riveiro believes his team is playing well enough, except for the early stages of matches.

“So, there’s nothing wrong, it’s just…maybe like I said, starting the games better. That’s it for me. I am not worried about the lack of goals.

“I am concerned about the way that sometimes we start the games which is not the right one,” the Pirates tactician concluded.
