Sérgio Conceição’s statements after Shakhtar-FC Porto (1-3), match of the first round of the Champions League group stage.
FC Porto won comfortably, does this give the players another type of confidence? “I honestly think that confidence isn’t about who scores first. Confidence has to be there and it’s based on the work, on what the players have to do at different moments of the game. Of course it’s better to have an advantage. But today we conceded the equalizer and that didn’t shake the team. We realized what we had to do.”
Departures of Zaidu and João Mário: “João Mário was tired. Zaidu seems to have a slight muscle problem, I don’t think it will be of great importance. It is what it is. We felt it would be a risk and Wendell came in.”
