"This award means a lot, but the most important thing is the team, what the group did during the game. I think we played a great game to take the three points", evaluated the eagles' top scorer (4 goals) in the current edition of the National Championship.
Still, the Uruguayan striker confessed to being happy for having scored twice in the match: "As I always say, the striker thrives on the goal, but when he doesn't score, he has to help the team. This is the most important thing because when we win, we all win, and when we lose, we all lose. I am very happy to score goals again, I will continue to help the team."
"Now, it's time to think about the next game. We are on the right track, but we must keep our feet on the ground, the championship is very long, it has just started. We will continue to work game after game to see if at the end of the season we can achieve our goal", claimed Darwin.
Intense game, top competitiveness, superb display!

The origin of the bow
At Sport Lisboa e Benfica, the fans’ bow is a tradition which has its roots in the Summer of 1970, and it persists. In a journey to Far East, the reds beat Japan by 4-1, and, after the final whistle, the Princes of Japan broke the protocol and entered the pitch to salute the players. Back to Portugal, and with the ban of Estádio da Luz, it was at Jamor, against CUF, that Benfica players thanked the fans with a bow for the first time.
