The Eagles racked up a point and on Saturday they focused their attention on the European League. Matchday 1 is against HC Monza, at 7 pm, at Pavilhão Fidelidade.
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.
“Honestly, I 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.
