He is having a great moment of fitness and once again confirms why he pissed off the big footballers. Run, fight, never give up with an arrow always pointing at the opposite goal. And he left his mark once again, with a great goal: he turned the turbo on the left, stunned Mikel Ajo with his passes, shot hard and put him, with no chance for Bruno Varela, scoring the ninth goal in the tournament. Before that, he suffered a penalty kick in the move that gave his team the second goal.
Moment: Minute 61, a launch pad for victory
In the 61st minute, Estopinan was a reckless inside the area and Portimonense took advantage of the opportunity to score and give a heavy blow to Minho’s aspirations by Dinner, in the 64th minute. Vitoria returned to the second half with a desire to discuss the result and create some complicated stances for Samuel’s goal. This move increased the Algarve’s advantage and eroded the Victorian belief, which was completely abandoned after three minutes with Beto’s goal.
Marcus Edwards: Agitator of the Guimaraes team. Technically gifted, he put speed into practice and trained in raids in an effort to break through the Algarve’s last stronghold. Realizing the danger, the Algarvians tried to reduce the space, always dropping a fellow in the barn. In the 50th minute, he saw Samuel deny the goal, with a shot in the frontcourt.
Lockoinha: Another pass, the third he makes in the tournament. Now he went to the corner, placing the ball in a small area, in order to deflect Posigniolo, in the first goal of the Algarve. Luquinha is the man with Algarve’s set pieces, and again in the corner, he was the second goal builder. He orchestrated Portimonense’s offensive game, ranging from eighth – along with Dener – to ten, as he positioned himself among Guimarães’ midfielders.
Lucas Bossignolo: Responsible for the defensive class, he capped his performance with the goal that opened the scoring after five minutes of play. An important tonic for the remainder of the match in the Algarve, which they will judge for the past half hour.
