In the penultimate game of 2017 Estoril Praia has a move to Luz, where they will be discussing the three points of the 14th round of the NOS League. Joel Ferreira, who has his second season at Amoreira, talked about the game with Benfica. “We prepared this game as we prepared any other, with a positive mindset that we can make a good result in the Light” he began by saying.
Faced with a team that has not lost at home this season in the domestic competitions, the Estorilistas are aware of the difficulties but also ambitious. “We have a great team ahead of us, strong in all sectors, we have to be very focused to counteract the difficulties they are going to create us. Benfica have the responsibility to be playing at home, aiming to be a champion and we believe that we can do something positive” he said, rejecting the idea of an adversary weakened by European failure.
With three weeks of work under the command of coach Ivo Vieira, Joel understands that the difference has been noticed in the greater “aggressiveness” of the team. “The performances have been more successful in the last few games, we have been more aggressive offensively, this is how we want to keep and continue to grow to get out of this situation. in the future the ball will eventually enter”.
The team returns to training this Friday, at 10 o’clock, behind closed doors. In the end coach Ivo Vieira will hold the press conference in advance of the meeting.
