In anticipation of Friday’s game (20:15 hours) against Marítimo, Pepa assumed that he does not expect an opponent weakened by the elimination of the Portuguese Cup.
«I do not believe that they are weakened. They are different competitions, we have to think about what we can and should do. In this house we are never satisfied. We came from two wins, but we want to win again, and win well, because it’s worth playing well», he said at a press conference.
The coach of Vitória de Guimarães also left the prescription to beat the insular team in this match of the 9th round that will be played at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques: «We want to continue to present offensive volume, looking for the goal and not allowing spaces for the Maritime because it has good performers. I believe we are going to make it.”
