Benfica visits SC Covilhã – 5th placed in LigaPro – with “ambition and winning obligation” in Round 2 of the League Cup

What do you expect from the opponent?

We know SC Covilhã very well from the last season and also the ambition their coach has for this season. It’s a team with good players, good values, which has been playing a good championship and which, playing home, will cause us trouble. They have the same ambition we have to move forward in the competition, but we want to play well and win. We were not capable of winning the first match [draw against V. Guimarães], we are all tied on the table but we have this ambition and winning obligation. We want to play good and score goals.

With little time to rest between the matches, are you going to make some changes?

That’s the way we work: showing up always with the best XI according to the calendar.
