However, in addition to the poor game shown by the capital’s lacking resources, the team was affected by the harshness of the Queretaro defense game, who constantly counted the game through the foul, mainly on the finest footballer who yesterday showed the set of Solari, Roger Martínez who was the target of constant kicks and contacts.

This situation took its toll very quickly on the Colombian footballer, who in practice after the game was affected by wearing a knee brace, something unusual, however, the situation worsened as soon as Martínez left practice because he could not continue due to the strong discomfort you felt throughout your recovery work. Solari openly expressed his annoyance at the “lack of care” on the part of the Referee towards Roger, stating that the referee should protect talented players much more since the attacks against them become systematic.
