Drafting sports USA, Feb 25 (EFE) .- The New York City looks forward to the second leg of the knockout round of the Concacaf Champions League that this Wednesday will play against San Carlos of Costa Rica after having scored 3-5 in the first leg.The New York team arrives at the game with everything in their favor and more now that they will play at home, even if they do it at the Red Bull Arena, in Harrison (New Jersey), the home of his rival team in the United States Professional Football League (MLS), the New York Red Bulls, but the new New York City coach, Norwegian Ronny Deila, does not want the players to relax or give up fact that they are already classified because they still have to play one more game, which they will win. “We are not going to speculate on the result of the previous game, even if it helps us make our football better,” said Deila, who had a triumphant debut at front of the New York team. “The only way to ensure the pass to the quarterfinals is to win again.” The first duel between both teams and debut in the Concacaf competition was a good football and scorer exhibition by the New York team, which showed all the danger he has with his attack game, led by Brazilian striker Héber, who achieved a “hat trick.” But he also showed some defensive gaps, which will be those that try to exploit the ethical team and that is precisely what Delia has worked more with the team. “We did not do the best work in defense and we must improve for Wednesday’s game,” said Delia. “There must be the key to ensuring the pass to the quarterfinals.” While Delia prepares the duel against San Carlos, he also received the good news of the next incorporation of the young Uruguayan steering wheel Nicolás Acevedo, who leaves his Liverpool team Montevideo to join the MLS New York club. Meanwhile, the Atico team lives a very different story in the face of the second leg with a two-goal disadvantage and having conceded five away from home makes the comeback of the Northern Bulls, as San Carlos is known, it is a very difficult mission to complete.The most aware of that reality is the coach Luis Marín, who after the first leg admitted that the opponent had been superior with his football and the result did not leave no doubt. “Now we come to play a new game in which we have to forget what happened in the first leg and focus on the good things we can do in the field in order to overcome u n adverse marker, “said Marin. “But as athletes we have to go out to the field to give everything and then see what happens.” The winner of the tie will face the winner of the clash between the Salvadoran FC Alliance and the UANL Tigers, with a surprise advantage of 2 -1 for the first in the first leg.
