Benfica said goodbye to the Europa League this Thursday night. After the draw (1-1) in the 1st leg of the last 32 in Rome, the tie was decided in Greece with a defeat by 3-2

In the flash interview zone, Taarabt analyzed the match and did not hide his frustration for the elimination.

"It's football, it's cruel. I'm not saying it's unfair, this is how football is, but we feel frustrated. It feels like everything is against us", he explained.

Looking ahead, the focus is now completely on the Portuguese League and the Portuguese Cup.

"It is not easy, we will think about the next game and focus on our League. We must get back to winning ways and we also have the 2nd leg of the semi-final of the Portuguese Cup", analyzed the midfielder.
