Roger Schmidt!

Before the match Roger Schmidt, Benfica's coach, spoke about what he expects from the match and the attitude his team will have on the pitch: "We're not here to defend and play on the counter-attack. That's not our style. We'll decide on the best approach for this game. We need a good eleven, but also very good players on the bench. On Sunday [with Vizela] I thought it was good to give some players minutes, and they've confirmed that they're in very good condition, which is good for us because we have more options. We're happy with the support of the fans and we want to play a good game. Firstly, I expect a tough and difficult game. The second game of a knockout stage is always different, because both teams know that at the end of the game there will be a decision and one of them will continue or not in international competitions. That makes the second game very special, and of course we have a lot of motivation to stay in the competition, but so do Toulouse. We're playing away from home, we won the first leg, which makes the approach a little different, especially for our opponents, because they need to score goals to stay in the competition. They'll have to take a bit more risks; whether they do that from the start, we'll see. We believe in ourselves and we'll try to play our football. We want to play attacking football and during the 90 minutes we want to show that we deserve to stay in the competition. That's what we expect, we're ready and we have to wait for those 90 minutes. We need solutions for every game situation. In defence, attack, midfield, possession, without the ball, pressing, everything and, of course, set pieces. That's part of the preparation. We're doing very well in defence from set pieces, and we're also doing well in attack. It's a tool for winning games, we have to be prepared for it, and we are. I think what I meant was that if we're intense and proactive, we'll always play our best football. We did that in the first leg, we did well, but we can do better. Sunday's game was a good example. If we play with high intensity, dynamism and transitions, we'll create chances and keep the game away from our area. We still have potential to improve, but right now we're good enough to win games. Tomorrow [Thursday 22 February], we need a good approach and balance in the team, we have to know how to defend, but we also have to show our weapons in attack. Goals influence the story of the game, and of course we want to score and use them for that. That's the task."
