Which opponent do you expect to find on Monday?
Belenenses SAD is doing a good season, this year against the big teams they only lost to Sporting. We will face an opponent with a very strong defensive organization, a team that waits for opportunities, which has a good game concept. It is one of the toughest opponents playing at home.
Is the state of the pitch at the Estádio Nacional something that concerns you? Will it influence the team selection for the match?
As for the pitch, I don't know how it is. But the most important thing for us is to know that we will have difficulties because of the opponent's value. We must find solutions for all the difficulties the game may bring. The pitch will not be an excuse for our performance in the match.
How are Darwin and Vertonghen?
Darwin and Jan [Vertonghen] are improving [their fitness]. Tomorrow [Monday] there is a training session in the morning and then I will make the squad list. Given the indications from today's [Sunday's] training, which were very positive, I may include them in the squad list, but we'll see how they respond.
