Fred Issues Rallying Cry Ahead of Galo Tie With Libertad
In form Fred says that Atlético Mineiro are relaxed ahead of their meeting with Libertad in Paraguay this week. The Brazilian side face Libertad on Wednesday night in their third group encounter in the Copa Libertadores, having taken four points from their first two games.
Fred scored 4 goals in 21 minutes against Sport Boys in Belo Horizonte this week, but he is not expecting to repeat the feat in Asuncion, “It would be perfect [to score four again], but a win would be better still.
“If we get 1-0 and we win, we are satisfied too. Our sole and primary goal is victory,” Fred pointed out. The striker has 15 goals in 13 games so far this season with Atlético in the semi-final of the Campeonato Mineiro.
“The players know our responsibilities. We have a lot of confidence in each other, things will work out for us. Our thoughts are only positive, we are not bothered with anything. We are aware that our work is being done with great dedication. Everyone trying to do their best.
“We are in a semi-final of the Campeonato Mineiro, top of our Libertadores group. Internally, our trust in each other is very great. We know we have a lot of quality. Let's join forces to be more and more strong, united and bring everyone to our side.”
