This Sunday, Santa Fe suffered a heavy defeat, against Millonarios, in the 205th edition of the Bogota classic. The cardinal team was beaten 0-3 by the ambassador team and, to tell the truth, the difference on the scoreboard could have been greater.
In the press conference after the game, the Argentine coach Martín Cardetti was confident that the club, which is now in 11th place in the standings, will be able to straighten the way. To do so, you will need to improve on five key points.
security in defense
The cardinal team showed yesterday that it has big problems in the rear. The team had two distractions that the rival turned into goals. Their situation is summed up in that, to date, Santa Fe is among the four teams that have received the most goals, with 14 goals against. It is tied with Patriotas and Unión Magdalena, the two coleros of the tournament. Only Jaguares, which has received 15, surpasses it.
A solid style of play
In the duel against Millonarios, Santa Fe was beaten on all lines of the court. Cardetti’s team failed the positional and strategic approach in the field. The little handling of the ball and the lack of ideas revealed a pale team that is urgently looking for its own way of playing. You will need to calibrate the compass to improve in the tournament.
Lack of concentration on corner kicks
Santa Fe has struggled on dead balls throughout the tournament. This Sunday, the situation was highlighted with the two rebounds that he left to ask for from the mouths of the Millonarios footballers. The way of marking in the area is one of the points that Cardetti must adjust.
You need variants in attack
Although the Argentine Fernando Conigilio did not have a bad game, the santafereño team missed Wilfrido de la Rosa on offense. His changes of pace and his speed have become a good safeguard for the team’s hope of scoring. The problem is that, as was seen this Sunday, he cannot depend exclusively on him.
lack of depth
Santa Fe is failing the connection between midfielders and forwards. Although they have had good alternatives on the wings to add to the attack, the team spends a lot of time in the center of the pitch and without effectively controlling the ball. To add wins and enter the top eight, you will need to improve the links between your lanes.
