Today, Vilafranquense won their fourth consecutive victory in the II Liga, winning 1-0 against FC Porto, in a game on the fifth round.
Nené, a 39-year-old veteran Brazilian striker, decided this game in the 61st minute with a powerful shot from afar, very well placed and with no chance of defense for Gonçalo Ribeiro.
With this result, the team from Vila Franca de Xira remains in second place, with 12 points, three less than the leader, Moreirense, who has 15, while FC Porto B, who suffered the second home defeat, also continues in fifth place with seven points.
The ‘dragons’ had more ball and more initiative in the first quarter of an hour, but Vilafranquense handled it well and tried their luck through counterattacks.
The half hour arrived and the tune continued, at a moderate pace and with low risk from both teams, but with Vilafranquense already more focused on the attack and forcing goalkeeper Gonçalo Ribeiro to two outs with his fists to nullify dangerous crosses .
Samba Koné had an opportunity to score in the 31st minute, it was also at that time that Varela launched a quick counterattack down the left aisle that only sinned for its poor definition.
Bernardo Folha came up in a good position to successfully shoot Pedro Trigueira’s goal in the 42nd minute, which he didn’t manage because Gabriel Pereira got in the way, blocked his shot and gave in to a corner.
The second half opened with Nené doing what is very unusual for him, which was missing a goal a few meters from the white and blue goal and in a frontal position, on 48 minutes, after a well-taken cross by Edson Farias on the right.
Vilafranquense in the second half was another, for the better at the offensive level, for more than ten minutes it gave the Porto defense more work than in the first 45 minutes, suggesting that they wanted something more than simply not losing.
When it looked like FC Porto B had, meanwhile, balanced the game, Nené broke the tie getting the 1-0 with a powerful shot from outside the area.
FC Porto B ran after the goal, but often more with their hearts than their heads, and Vilafranquense resisted well the final assault on their goal and even managed to scare the opponent with a shot by Umaro Baldé in the 82nd minute, which forced Gonçalo Ribeiro to a difficult save for a corner.
