Chiquinho was one of the choices of Bruno Lage for Benfica's starting XI, and the number 19 didn't disappoint. He delivered the assist for Vinícius' second goal and was one of the standout players in the Eagles' win over Portimonense by 4-0.
“To play here, in this Stadium and with this supporters, it was a dream I'd had since I was a kid. I felt that the fans enjoyed the display, that they were happy with what I did on the pitch and that's very rewarding for me. I was very happy for that”, praised Chiquinho in statements with BTV.
In the next round of the Liga NOS (10), which will take place on Saturday (November 2, at 6:00 pm), Benfica hosts Rio Ave.
“We have to focus now on Saturday's game because it's another one to win. There's a lot of demand at Benfica. We have to win every game and on Saturday there's one more important battle to stay in the lead”, he finished.
