The goals from Seferovic and Caio Lucas wrote the story of a hard-fought triumph from SL Benfica against Fiorentina (1-2), in a clash for the International Champions Cup 2019 (ICC).


How do you analyze this 1-2 win from Benfica?

It was a good and well-balanced match, but we had more goal chances, more shots, and more ball possession. It was a fair and well-deserved win.

How's it been the fight for a place in midfield?

It's a healthy fight that every player likes. Everyone is fighting for their place, but what matters is to rack up minutes and assimilate processes.

Two games, two wins. Do you aim to win this Tournament in view of these results?

No! The main objective is to prepare ourselves in the best way, but if we win, it's better for us!
