Pizzi: "A match with a lot of fighting and commitment"


The Portuguese midfielder highlighted Benfica's "good game" in the first half. 

He scored the goal that put Benfica in the final of the Portuguese Cup and amassed his 22nd accurate strike of 019/20 – the 5th in the Portuguese Cup. Pizzi admitted the "difficulties" against Famalicão (1-1), in a match "with a lot of fighting and commitment".

"We knew we'd be up against a very difficult team, which plays good football, builds very well from the back, and we knew they would cause us many difficulties", analyzed the Benfica captain.  

"In the first half we did a good game, we had tow or three errors we need to correct and then with the goal [1-1], they believed until the end. But I think this match had to be like this, with a fighting spirit and a huge commitment because a final was at stake. We are very happy to have achieved this qualification", confessed the Portuguese midfielder.
