Speaking to journalists, in the end of the game, Ivo Traça said it was not easy because the host team were tactically well organised, which made the 1º de Agosto team strengthen the belief in a victory.  

The assistant coach also said the bad state of the turf also caused difficulties to the performance of the 1º de Agosto players.

He then stressed that the squad will face each game like a final, with a view to accomplishing the main objective, which is to conquer the Girabola2018/19 trophy.
