SL Benfica and SC Braga played, this Sunday, the final of the Portuguese Cup. At the Estádio Cidade de Coimbra, triumph for SC Braga by 2-0.

"First of all I want to congratulate SC Braga for winning the Portuguese Cup. Everyone saw what happened. A referee who ends up ruining a game [at minute 16/17], a final that was going to be well played, with excellent players, 22 excellent players, in which unfortunately three people, plus the people who are in VAR, got it wrong", began by saying Pizzi.

"The red card is at the beginning, but it complicated the game for us. We had five, six days to prepare the game, a final, everyone focused to do things the best way possible.  Until that moment, it was a well-played game, with excellent players, and it ends up being what it is. Now we have to congratulate Braga, and we will think about next season. We still have many things to win", he analyzed.
