This Wednesday Daniel Ramos praised Partizan, a contender for access to the Conference League, but sees that Santa Clara can give a good response in the first leg on Thursday, in São Miguel (20.30 hours).
“The quality of a partisan does not deprive us of the legitimate possibility to fight for the knockout. We also have this conviction, we believe that Santa Clara at the highest level can face a strong partisan, and she can stand shoulder to shoulder with a partisan,” he said.
Partizan started the Serbian championship well, with four wins in four matches, while Santa Clara scored one draw and one defeat, and the team was weakened due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus that affected 10 players. “We have the new Partizan, because he succeeded in postponing his game [do campeonato]It’s something we can’t do, it’s asymmetric weapons, obviously, but we go with our weapons,” he said, referring to last day’s match against Moreirense that the Azores tried to postpone without success.
Some of those not available in recent games can be considered to have recovered, as there will be results this afternoon from another round of Covid-19 testing. “We are waiting for the test results. We have 14 players. [disponíveis] In addition to the goalkeeper, that’s what I know now. I also know I can get more at five in the afternoon.”
“With the team spirit that is there, with the unity, with the idea of the game that is there, with the ability for all of us to work in the sense of winning, where there is no culprit in defeats and where we all celebrated victories, I think we can once again have a good championship,” he said.
