Daniel Alves has done it again: change the mind of the fans of the UNAM Pumas. The college kids came out victorious for the second time in the tournamentsomething that seemed distant from the passage of time with the arrival of Alves to the locker room of the auriazules. Nine games had to pass of league and a friendly against Barcelona so that those led by Andrés Lillini see a win.
Pumas defeated Queretaro on the Matchday 13 of the 2022 Opening of the Liga MX and now he can sneak into group positions through the playoffs and in the absence of four dates to playit already adds up 13 units. surprising or not Pumas still aspires to the phase of playoffs after a campaign in which he has displayed football in which his players they don’t end up understanding inside the field.
With the three points they got against the white roostersthe felines are placed in the 15th place in the general table Already three points move up to 9th place. During the match, Daniel Alves gave one attendance for Juan Dinenno and arrived three in the tournament. The Brazilian showed his quality and left Omar Mendoza seeded after a feint to send a center in which the “Comandante” did not forgive and scored.
At the end of the game, the former culé player was applauded and came out to applause upon entering the locker room tunnel. The compliments are ironicWell, just a little over three weeks ago, Alves and company were booed when they were defeated by Saints 5 to 1 in the University Olympic Stadium.
In this way, the last time that Pumas played at home was against the Guerreros where the fans did not forgive and criticized the players. But after three matches, two away from home and one at homethe approval of the pumista fanatic has changed radically. The evident thing is that not even when they lost were they the worst and now that they won they are not the best.
Similarly, during the presentation of Alves against Mazatlan on matchday 5, the University Olympic it was bursting, there was no room for a pin in the building. In a different way, in the duel against Querétaro, you could see empty seats on campus. The evaluation of Pumas supporters with their team is changing every game.
In the same way, in social networks they saw disapproval messages for the South American: “Why haven’t I seen a harsh criticism of Dani Alves? Why don’t they say that it does NOT contribute anything? Since their arrival Pumas DO NOT PLAY!!!”read a post from a Twitter user.
According to Statiskicks, a portal dedicated to the statistical evaluation of players from the first division of Liga MX, Daniel Alves is positioned as one of the best tournament midfielders Opening 2022. In his position, he is the footballer with more opportunities created in attack.
The cearense is aware that the operation has not been correct. He also admitted that the true fans of the auriazul team must be in the bad, in the worst and in the best: “Those who are not with you in bad times is because they were never with you. It had never been so long without winning a game, ”said the midfielder for Efraín Velarde on his Casa Velarde podcast.
Now, if Pumas wants to get into the big party, they will have to have an almost perfect step against his next rivals, since it does not depend only on them, but now they will have to wait for a series of results and combinations to be able to enter the final phase. About this, Andrés Lillini, puma helmsman, confessed that Alves has all the attitude ahead: “Alves told me that now we are not going to stop”, confessed the Argentine at a press conference.
