Pizzi: "It was important to offer the public a great victory" 


Benfica was bossy, imposed the rhythm of the match and beat Standard Liège on matchday 2 of the Europa League Group D.

Pizzi scored a brace and was one of the standout players in Benfica's triumph over Standard Liège (3-0).

"On the individual level it was a good game, but on the collective level, it was even better. From the very first moment, we controlled the match very well. The key to success was patience, good ball possession and in the 2nd half, the goals eventually appeared. It was important to offer this public a great victory", he guaranteed, in statements to the press

The streak of matches continues and on November 2, Benfica steps onto the pitch again. The Clube da Luz visits Estádio do Bessa to face Boavista. A game from matchday 6 of the Liga NOS. "The streak of matches is normal for the big teams. Fortunately we have a squad with a lot of quality and that gives the gaffer all the options that he wants. We are all to be congratulated. We are a very strong group and we have been showing it from the very first moment", he finished.
