fair victory

“Overall we played a very positive game,” Nelson Verissimo began by summing up the results of a good game and a well-deserved 2-0 win over Pasos de Ferreira, also with a new coach who won two wins. in the League.

According to our coach, “the game was well organized by the team, but there is room for improvement,” namely in terms of “regularity and consistency”, adding that he was “satisfied with all the players”. Verissimo also insisted on emphasizing that “the team has opportunities and the players are motivated and committed.”

In 90 minutes, the team created many scoring chances, so the result was short-lived. João Mario, considered the best player of the match, scored the first goal. And Grimaldo, in his 150th league game, closed the final score and added to the historic record, Benfica’s 6000th goal in the competition (read PS), with a powerful and precise shot from outside the penalty area.

Having won three points, the team is already thinking about the next challenge. “Getting Moreirense and winning three more points” is the immediate goal, adhering to the game-by-game philosophy that Verissimo intends to internalize well within the team.

“The focus is game after game, training after training and always fighting to win. We need to be aware of the situation we are in, but we will go from game to game, “he said, before adding that” with this structure and with these players, we are confident that we will reach the end of the Championship and will be able to discuss the prizes “. “We are not going to give up the championship until the last round,” he assured.

One final note on the successful implementation of a COVID-19 testing system near the stadium over the weekend, complementing the wristband distribution to speed up entry to multiple games. This service was used by more than 1,500 Benficista players so that the Club could facilitate access to the stadium, taking into account the current rules, and thus increase the number of spectators in the stands. In the face of constraints, solutions are sought, and this time with amazing efficiency.

It is imperative that the benches are full again. As Nelson Verissimo said after the game, “when our team is connected with the public, and the public with the team, it surpasses itself, and this was evident in many moments.” “We want this to continue until the end of the championship,” he said.

PS: This tally takes into account the 1: 1 draw in the last round of 1986/87 between Braga and Benfica, which ended before the final whistle due to the invasion of the pitch, and the Federation attributed the 0: 3 defeat to both clubs. And yet a 1-2 defeat to Sporting in 1994/95 instead of a replay in which we won 2-0. Although the FPF approved the win, FIFA will later cancel this replay of the game, according to media reports. So, for now we are looking at the original game, although we leave open the possibility that the Federation will decide which game should be considered. If we take into account the repetition, then the 6000th goal was scored by João Mario.
