Pablo Alvarado: "I believe we were the better side"

The captain and #BestOfTheMatch spoke after the opening match in this season's CONMEBOL Sudamericana.

The Argentine defender was the star performer in the match, which ended goalless, as the tournament got underway. "It was a tough match with both teams a little anxious and it showed. They had more experience than us. But we fought for 90 minutes and I believe we were the better team. Matches are determined by what happens in the area and that's where we lacked a little bit of sharpness."

"In these types of competitions it's incredibly important that you don't concede at home."
