“The analysis I make is that the result is extremely unfair, for the way the match unfolded, for our performance. We did not deserve this! We did a great match, the team always went looking for the goal, which unfortunately did not happen. Sporting had few attacking plays. We were much stronger. We were very strong in the second half. What I want to say is: we did not win the match, but the strength we have shown against a direct opponent is a very positive sign of the work we have been doing and of what the players did on the pitch. We had a lot of strength”, he stated.
The draw leaves Benfica five points behind the leader, but the performance was once again praised by the Eagles' coach in the press conference.
