Los Guerreros spent most of Monday at Territorio Santos Modelo preparing physically and mentally as a group for Wednesday's game against Necaxa, which was rescheduled after September's earthquake in Mexico.
Midfielder Diego de Buen and goalkeeper Jonathan Orozco commented after the team's narrow 1-0 loss to Atlas - a game fought hard and strong by lklos Guerreros throughout 96 minutes of play Sunday night.
"I think we have demonstrated attitude, disposition, delivery and good football," said De Buen. "Sometimes you play your best game and you don't win. But we have to keep doing that and continue on Wednesday which is an important game. It's a home game and we have to play the same way we played tonight, only score goals."
Los Guerreros dominated the game in offense, recording 13 shots in total, eight of them on goal. All in all, the home team had the advantage but just couldn't break Atlas' defense nor their goalkeeper Oscar Ustari who made several crucial stops on attempts by Santos.
Orozco stressed that the team can't let the minor setback affect the mentality of the team.
"We can't lower our arms, we have to keep fighting until the end," he said.
"We have to leave it all on the field. The team fought to the end, left everything but the result didn't fall in our favor.
The team played well and got plays up front most of the time," he said.
"It's complicated when the results are not returned. But we're working and under Robert (Dante Siboldi) and what his vision is against Necaxa, we will try to do play the best we can to generate chances and add from there."
Los Guerreros will kick off against Necaxa at 7pm local time.
