Pizzi: “We are in the fight and we are strong”


Benfica won in Alvalade “fairly” and “the numbers could even have been higher”, analyzed the Portuguese international.

Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Sporting CP locked horns, this Sunday, in the derby from round 20 of the Liga NOS. At Estádio José Alvalade, an emphatic win from the eagles by 2-4 in an intense match.


“Above all, what we wanted was to come here and win! I think that we did a great performance, very complete and we were always better than Sporting. We faced a great opponent, with players of huge quality, but since the first moment we had a lot of strength, a lot of quality with and without ball possession and this victory is entirely fair and could even have been by higher numbers”, explained Pizzi.

“We had chances for that to happen, but what we wanted was to come here and win, whether it was by 1-0, 3-0 or 5-0. We did it! We are in the fight, we are strong and we want to stay that way!”, added the midfielder.
