Benfica's European night of excellence at Estádio da Luz against Barcelona "began" and "ended" in Darwin's right boot. The forward opened the scoring at 3' and scored the 3-0 at 79', from the penalty spot, confirming the triumph of the eagles in the 2nd round of group E of the Champions League

Darwin

Man of The Match

"It is very important for me to win this trophy, but even more important is the victory of the team. It was our first home match, and it was very difficult. We know that no game is easy, but for our opponents it won't be easy to play against Benfica either, we will defend this jersey with all we have. We will go step by step, we are just at the beginning!"

Goals against Barcelona

"Playing against a big team like Barcelona and score two goals is a great satisfaction for me. I thank my teammates for the support they have given me since I arrived at Benfica."

Darwin

Ever-growing Confidence

"I feel more confident. Since I came back from injury, as the training and the matches went by, I have been gaining confidence and now it is time to enjoy this victory. It was a great victory for the team!" 

Learning from Jorge Jesus

"Since I arrived at Benfica, the coach has always supported me, he has taught me many things I didn't know and I am still learning from him, I am only 22 years old. I work every day to improve."
