"Of course, I am happy with the result," he said. "I have to underline that we controlled the match almost throughout the contest, from the first minute.
"We were really good on the ball today. Not only did we score twice, we were really intense in attack and defence.
"We didn't allow Benfica to do that much, so we are happy with the result and our display."
Spartak are now third in the group with three points from as many matches.
