In a Press Conference, this Friday, at Caixa Futebol Campus, Bruno Lage, coach of Benfica, has previewed the "clássico" against FC Porto.
The game is scheduled for next Saturday at 7 pm, at Estádio da Luz.
This Saturday you will live your first “clássico” at Estádio da Luz. What are you expecting from Benfica?
I would like to watch a great match just like it was the FC Porto-Benfica for the League Cup and the FC Porto-Benfica for the Championship [last season]. Two excellent games! One victory for FC Porto, one for Benfica, but I point out the game quality and everything that happened before, during and after the games.
Benfica may match the best winning streak at the beginning of a championship. Is this another goal you want to achieve?
Our only concern is to win the match. I don’t care about records. I believe that no team loses nothing at this early point (round 3). At this moment the most important thing is to be focused on our work and get ready to win. We just ignore the rest.
Do you feel that, in this moment, FC Porto has more pressure than Benfica to win?
None of the teams will look at the standings. What we care the most is to win. We also have the pressure, both teams feel some pressure and I believe that both are motivated to win the game.
