Man of the Match


Rafa highlighted the “mutual work” in the Benfica's win over Vitória de Setúbal (4-2).

With a brace – the second of the season – and an assistance was elected Man of the Match in the home victory against Setúbal (4-2).

“It is normal that the team gets tired at some point during the game, but it is not so relevant when the mutual work is so big. The indication we have is to go always after the goal and that is what we do in every moment of the game”, explained the Benfica’s player to BTV.

With 16 goals this season – 12 in Liga NOS, 2 in the Portuguese Cup and 2 in the League Cup –, the 25-year old shows himself satisfied.

“I always felt good here at Benfica, always had a supportive team behind me. This season is going well and we will keep working to reach our goal, which is to win the Championship.”
