Luiz likes praying before every match. He once prayed for James Rodriguez to score against him and James did score. However, he didn’t pray for him to win the match as it was against his team. Brazil eventually ended with a 2-1 victory. “My faith gives me a belief that I can go out and perform and also help other players including my opponents,” Luiz said. “It gives me strength and inspiration.”
There was a time when the Brazilian defender touched Fernando Torres for luck before Chelsea game. The Blues went on to finish with a 5-0 Champions League win over Genk. Tores scored two of the five goals. It’s not just a superstition for Dave, but faith.
