This derby had a bit of everything and, above all, a lot of goals! Benfica beat Sporting (4-3), at Estádio da Luz, in the derby from matchday 33 of the Liga NOS. Pizzi, decisive with one goal and two assists, was named the "Man of the Match".

"Obviously I am very happy for this distinction, but the most important thing was the victory of the team. We played an excellent game and the numbers are scarce considering what happened, but we must highlight the team's spirit. It was a good win against Sporting, who are an excellent team, as they have shown in this Championship. We also showed that we have an excellent team, with top-quality players, and now it's time to think about the next game and then, obviously, the final of the Portuguese Cup, which is a trophy we want to win", explained Pizzi in the flash interview zone, to BTV.


"The most important thing is that the player can help the team. Regardless of the position I play, I will always be available to give my best, to be one more to fight for the three points. That's what happened.", finished the eagles' attacking midfielder.
