Pacheco gave credit to the players for their exceptional effort throughout the match, particularly noting their superiority at many points in the game. He also highlighted tactical shifts, such as the defensive strategy employed in the first half to block Sundowns’ advances, and the second-half offensive enhancements with Abdullah El-Said and Mostafa Fathi on the pitch, which led to the creation of numerous chances.

Victories in the upcoming matches are crucial for Pyramids FC’s aspirations to reach the quarter-finals.
