What kind of match do you expect from V. Setúbal and what Benfica will step onto the pitch at Bonfim?

We expect a very competitive match. It is a good team and a stadium where it is always difficult for Benfica to play. At this moment, it's the perfect match to rectify everything we have been doing wrong. We've been training hard to be better and more consistent in what we haven't done so well. It's the right game for us to confirm our work on the pitch and show that we're solving the problem. A strong and determined Benfica, and with an enormous willingness and urgency to return to the winning ways.

What can you tell us about the clinical situation of Seferovic, André Almeida and Gabriel?

They are not available.

Does this disadvantage in the league table bring more pressure to Benfica?

 It's the same for me. The pressure I put on is always enormous. In training, we look for perfection, in the game we want to present a quality game, that makes people happy and dignifies Benfica. Play well and with quality. The pressure is always maximum.
