Rúben Dias: "12 finals coming up plus one…"


The center-back highlighted the good game of the reds against Shakhtar, a draw that dictated the farewell to European competitions.

Rúben Dias considers that Benfica made "a very strong first half" in the home match against Shakhtar – a match "decided on details and effectiveness" –, and already points to the National Championship and the Portuguese Cup. 

"We're obviously not happy, but I believe we've put in a good performance. We started very well, the first half was very strong, and we also started the second half well. Then Shakhtar ended up scoring two goals that decided the game… That just how football is. It was decided on details and effectiveness", analyzed Benfica's center-back. 

"To the fans, I just have to say that we have to be united because there are 12 finals coming up plus one [12 Liga NOS matches and the Portuguese Cup final]. We have a lot of work ahead of us", remembered Rúben Dias
