Porto, to a very suffered final

ANDl Porto will play the final of the Taça de Portugal, the cup competition in which he will fight for the title against Braga (June 4). And he will do it after an unexpected bad taste against the surprising Famalicao, who despite arriving at Do Dragao with a 1-2 loss, had Sergio Conceiçao’s team on the ropes. So much so as to take the game to extra time, where only then, when the penalties were intuited, did the dragons manage to win the tie.

Famalicao, a modest team that has managed to establish itself in the elite with great solidity (it is seventh in the League), He was planted in Porto wanting to give the bell. And soon he began to get closer to his goal. Jhonder Cádiz finished off a lateral free kick to make it 0-1, equalize the tie and bring nervousness to the stands.

However, the joy barely lasted two minutes. A foul by Dobre on Uribe that was reviewed by VAR ended in a penalty, converted by Galeno. They were Porto’s best minutes. The Spanish Toni Martínez looked mobile in attack. He had an opportunity that went wide and assisted Galen for what could have been 2-1, but it was canceled due to the forward’s offside.

And he was not the only Spanish protagonist of the match. In the second half it was his turn to Iván Jaime, a 22-year-old from Malaga who is marveling this season in the Portuguese country. He first crashed a ball into the post and, almost afterwards, returned to equalize the tie. He received on the left wing, faced, outlined to execute with the right and surprised the goalkeeper Claudio Ramos.

Racist insults and Otávio’s goal

With everything to be decided, the party intensified. Hard tackles and the ex-madridista Pepe, unbridled by what the Portuguese media noted as a reaction to having been able to receive racist insults from a rival. The truth is that the game continued in that tone until extra time, where Porto dominated. And although Famalicao had opportunities, Otávio, when the game went to a penalty shootout, signed a work of art that is worth a final. His missile to the squad knocked down a Famalicao who still conceded a bit more, the work of Evanilson.

The last moments, with both teams embroiled and Sergio Conceiçao sent off the day he equaled the legendary José María Pedroto (as the coach with the most games at the club), gives an idea of ​​the shock stress. And it is that Famalicao was very close to surprising Porto. But the ‘big’, this time, knew how to suffer.
