Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Tondela met, this Thursday, in Matchday 25.ª of the Liga NOS.
"We started well, and if we managed to score in the first 30m the game would be completely different. It was hard to play against an entire team behind the ball line, all of them defending. We played, played, forced, but we couldn’t score. We’re disappointed with the result", explained Adel Taarabt, in the flash interview, who was elected Man of the Match by Liga Portugal.
The 4th of June marks the Benfica’s comeback to Liga NOS and to Estádio da Luz… a stadium with 21.116 scarves sent by the fans on the stands…
"We missed our fans, but no excuses. We’re disappointed, but there are 9 games left to play and we’ll give everything to be champions", concluded.
