Saturday’s match against Estudiantes was a great team performance. Although we didn’t come out with the result we wanted, it gave us a great foundation for the games ahead in the cup and shows we can get a result against quality teams.
In the first half, we had great defensive shape and Estudiantes had a very difficult time breaking us down. The few times they did have their chances, they were more due to individual attributes rather than tactical breakdowns. And even in those moments, Yoav Greenberg was there to make one great save after another.
Attacking-wise, we were clever finding our moments. When we recovered the ball either in our defensive third or in midfield, we were composed and found Titi Cabuli and Daniel Geron who got forward very well.
In the 19th minute, after a quick build-up, Martin Lagman crossed the ball and Dani was able to get on the end of it and put us 1-0 up.
In the second half, we worked tirelessly and stuck to the game plan very well. Although in the 50th minute Estudiantes was able to equalize, after that we did well to keep them quiet.
It was not until the last ten minutes of the game, when our legs began to tire, that they got two quick goals to get a result.
Overall, a great team performance. Returning Inter Blue manager Zequi Lubocki summarised, ''I think we deserved more, but in any case, it puts us in a great trajectory as we approach the cup.''
