Benfica remains in the top spot of the Liga NOS after a triumph, by 1-2, against Santa Clara, in a game from round 11 of the competition. In São Miguel, the eagles were trailing, but Vinícius and Pizzi completed the comeback.
“We knew that Santa Clara would make life very difficult for us. They have good players and it's hard to play on this pitch. The first half did not go according to plan, but we entered the second half on the front foot, a big reaction and we ended up winning a very difficult game. Victory is entirely fair because we worked for that”, started by saying the Portuguese midfielder.
Speaking of goals... do you think you'll be the League top scorer?
“I don' think about that! The most important thing is always to help the team get all three points and that was what happened. I was fortunate enough to assist Vinícius and then scoring the winner. I want to dedicate this goal to Cristian, Wilmer and Keven, who are three boys who supported us from the first moment”, finished Pizzi.
