STATEMENTS

Norberto Alves (Benfica coach):It was a very physical game, in a very unfavorable environment, filled to the brim with Limoges support. There were several moments. We started very well and, according to our game plan, did not let them run and tried, despite the fact that we were a very physical team, to control the rebound. We managed to do it, but then they began to impose themselves and moved on. In the second half, we did not let them go, raised doubts about what could happen. We knew that if we managed to stay in the game at the end, they would feel the pressure. The team had an incredible character, we defended extraordinary. We dedicate this victory to all Benfica fans! At home, we beat a team that was already European champion and had won more than 11 national championship titles in France. It’s not easy to do what the boys did today. I am very proud of them, they knew how to be a team and rally with each other in that terrible situation that was here today. Thanks to the Benfica fans who were in the pavilion.”
