"We'll do everything we can to win the game because that's our big goal", assumed the coach of Benfica, Bruno Lage, in the preview of the match against Lyon, in France, on matchday 4 of the Champions League.
What kind of game will we be able to see between Lyon and Benfica this Tuesday?
I expect a very competitive game as it happened at Luz. A very competitive team that as its coach and has been having a substantial evolution in its playing style. We must be at our best level, have a good collective game, with and without ball possession, to win. Our ambition and our demand are to perform well and win.
This Lyon, with a new coach, has a different playing style?
We have seen some differences, not many, particularly in the offensive dynamics of our opponent. Lately, they have been playing with wingers that like cut inside. But they may play in a 4x3x3 or a 4x4x2 formation. It's going to be a game in which we have to show the strength of our team.
