He scored the third goal of the afternoon, the tenth from his personal tally in the 2018/19 Liga NOS, and at the end, he was named the man of the match in the visit to Moreirense (0-4). However, Rafa undervalued the distinction, preferring to highlight the importance of the triumph that keeps SL Benfica at the top of the league table.
“I want to thank my teammates. This is a group, it doesn't matter who is the man of the match if we don't win. What matters is the win”, said the Portuguese international at the end of the encounter final.
