Peseiro acknowledged the challenges faced in the second half, citing the need to adapt to the opponent’s speed and counter-attacks.

    “We changed to 4-3-3,” he explained. “Even if they got the second goal, I’m very happy because I changed the team; I didn’t play all the players. I tried to manage the team, and I didn’t show the first eleven; I showed two first elevens. I am happy.”
