The veteran playmaker, who returned to the Lisbon club last season after 12 years in Italy, scored twice, sandwiching an equaliser from Canada international Atiba Hutchinson. And with Copenhagen holding an away goal going into next week´s second leg, Rui Costa insists Benfica will have to stick to their attacking principles.
"We faced a strong opponent," said the 35-year-old former AC Milan midfielder. "We got this result to defend by attacking. We can not go there [Copenhagen] just to defend the result. I am happy with the goals I scored. I feel I can serve this team even more."
