Pizzi: "I believe the fans will attend en masse"

Football

The "commander" of the eagles previewed next Saturday's clash with Belenenses (August 17), from matchday 2 of the Liga NOS.

Pizzi has been one of the standout players of Benfica's first team at the start of the 2019/20 season. The Eagles number 21 jersey, who scored two goals and provided one assist on matchday 1 of the Liga NOS, asked the fans to go to Jamor and support en masse in the second game of the Championship, against Belenenses.

The player from the Eagles, elected Man of the Match in the victory over Paços de Ferreira by 5-0, knows it's complicated, but hopes that the Benfica Family can fill Jamor and thus help the team clinch more victories.

"I hope so, we know it's complicated, it's a game in Lisbon, but it's away from home, it's away from our stadium, but yes, I believe that the fans will attend en masse, they will continue in a state of euphoria that is good for them and helps us to clinch victories on the pitch and what I'm asking for is stadium full of Benfica so on Saturday we can get one more win and three more points", he said.
