Braga goalkeeper speaks about the upcoming UEFA Europa League Last 8 meeting

- Matheus, how do the team prepare for the game against Shakhtar? Your opponents have extensive European experience and boast dangerous counter-attacks, especially in away matches.
- It has been said that Shakhtar is a very good team. But we rely on our successful performance and on winning it.

- Can the five goals conceded by Braga from Benfica at the Estádio da Luz affect the confidence of Braga in any way?
- This is football. Sometimes you lose. But in this case you have the opportunity to train more, to show your strength and win. We do not want to miss this opportunity. Therefore, we hope for a good meeting with Shakhtar.

- Braga have been demonstrating good results at home. What does it take to extend the streak in the match against Shakhtar?
- We do not need to do anything differently. It is important to operate just as usual - to be one family on the pitch, to play cohesively and help one another.
