Julian Weigl Exclusive about Benfica Bavaria and DFB

For Julian Weigl, Lisbon is just so good that he sometimes can not believe it myself, as the ex-Dortmund in the Champions League interview (Monday edition) laughing laughing. What he means is his apparently newly discovered scorer capability. Weigl, who gathered five gate participations in four and a half years at the BVB, stands alone this season with two hits and four assists for Benfica.

For the 26-year-old, who has developed after starting difficulties under coach Jorge Jesus for the solid size in the midfield and was chosen by the fans to the player of the season, it is an expression that I m extremely well-being in our system. I feel A lot of trust, from the association, from the coach. That gives me a good feeling in the square. My goals have also fallen according to standards for which I am firmly planned under our coach Jorge Jesus. I know the runways, have developed a better timing. That pays off.

Also for the team. After eight victories from the first eight games, Benfica had to accept the first defeat last Sunday (0: 1 against Portimonense), tabled leaders before postage and in the Champions League with four of six possible points started. Especially the 3-0 against the FC Barcelona three weeks ago, weight for a broad breast.

It is relatively hard to shoot goals against us.


Our plan for the game has started perfectly, says the five-time national player about the victory against Barça. Much also came together with the game of the game. That was our day. But we had earned ourselves through a good performance. We have grown better as a team.

Now on Wednesday (21 clock, live! At Champions League) FC Bayern, and goes to Weigl, the Munich in the Estadio da Luz this time has much less reason to joy than the Champions League triumph in August 2020. It s against us relatively hard to shoot goals, says Benficas number 28 and counts five reasons why the Bayern the antennas should extend : We have a very good defensive. But we also achieve the most hits in the home league, too Have met three times against Barcelona. We are not easy to count, can be quickly switched. To do this, the atmosphere will be uncomfortable for you, and we again gives us a push. I expect a hot fight in which we will demand everything for the dealers.

I would like to return to the national team : The whole interview with Julian Weigl read in the current Champions League issue or hier in the emagazine!
