Pedro Nunes: “We were superior in all aspects of the game”

Pedro Nunes, the coach of Benfica, at the end of the derby regretted the draw because he considered that the eagles deserved to have won the game.

HonestlyI think that we lost two points. We were superior to Sporting in all aspects of the game. Sporting's goal, 1-2, relaunched the game because, until that moment, they had not created any danger. I leave unhappy because we could have taken the three points. A great attitude from Benfica's team”, he analyzed.
