"In this phase of the competition, every opponent is going to be very strong. It is a very good team, with a lot of potential. It will be a very difficult opponent. We may have some advantage for playing at home, in Lisbon, it's good for us, we have to bring everything we have to the table", stressed Ole Rahmel in statements to BTV.
"We have to focus our attention on defense, we have strong players in the center. If we are focused, we are able to make the saves easier for our goalkeepers. In the attack we can surprise", claimed Benfica's right-winger.
