The coach of Benfica, Roger Schmidt, praised, this Saturday, the performance of the red club against Vitória de Guimarães, mainly in the first half.
“The key is always to play with intensity, be surgical and use the 90 minutes to create opportunities and not give the opponent opportunities to gain an advantage.

Vitória has a good team, has had an excellent season and it was a very good day for us”, began by saying Roger Schmidt, praising the atmosphere at Estádio da Luz.
