"The real motivation is to be playing in the UEFA Champions League. It’s true Benfica are a team I know well, but the important thing is for us to win and secure the points to get us closer to qualification."
"I’m the same player as last year. I’ve got my responsibilities, I do my best to help the team on and off the pitch. We’re trying to win games and build confidence. Our aim is to go as far as we can in this competition."
"Everyone is still in with a chance of qualifying from this group. Benfica are under pressure, but they’re not out of it yet. That’s why we’ll need a big performance."
