"Our adversaries were not that much superior to us", claimed Benfica coach Rui Vitória, but the numbers suggest otherwise and if the 4-time Liga NOS champions fail to react domestically, the manager's position will start to come under intense scrutiny. "Do you want me to speak with or without my mask", quipped Fonseca, before saying: "I think not only the Shakhtar supporters, but all Ukrainians should be proud of this team".
