The key for what is left to play this season is keeping the high pressure on the games and in many minutes of those matches?
The key is to be competent at various moments of the game and not just in that one in particular. To be consistent with ball possession, to create and materialize the goal chances to win the game. The strategy depends on each game. Tomorrow [Tuesday] we will play against another opponent, that plays in a different formation, that has been carrying out a good campaign, with a competent coach. We have to repeat what we did well in the last game. This game is going to be very difficult, we have to be at our best collective, individual, and, at this moment, emotional level to get all three points.
Benfica has not won at Estádio da Luz for four matches in the Championship. Do you see a problem with that?
Playing at home is not a problem. What I wanted was to play every game at home and with 60,000 fans in the stands pushing us to the victories.
The team that are in the title race have the same point tally. Looking at what's left to play, what can make the difference and be decisive in winning the title?
It's winning the next game. That's what's decisive.
