André Almeida was one of the pieces used by Bruno Lage in the European comeback against Dinamo Zagreb (3-0).
"The team responded well the entire match, I think our physical availability was clear. We have been recovering very well from match to match, within three days. We have been short time to get some rest, but we have been responding well at all levels", highlighted.
When asked about the draw which will take place this Friday (March 15), the player was emphatic.
"The teams which got here have merit and are all strong opponents. Whatever the team we might face, we will do everything to get the qualification", he concluded.
