Otamendi was the Benfica's captain once more (until Pizzi came off the bench at 65') in the important win, by 6-1, over Braga at Estádio da Luz, in Matchday 11 of the Liga Bwin.

"We started strong, that was our goal. We played home and it was important to have a good display in front of our supporters. In the previous matches we struggled to open the scorer, but today [Sunday] we scored the great majority of chances we had on the box. It was an important win for all of us", said the Argentinian international.

Approaching the controversy created during the week…

"Nonsense. Sometimes, when the results don’t come, the journalists or whoever they are talk too much, but we keep working the same way to improve and get the wins for us and for the fans. A controversy was cooked based on a lie, I have no issues with the coach, honestly", stressed the defender.
