A goal by Tiago Tomás was enough to guarantee the victory over Penafiel.
Sporting managed to qualify for the final four of the League Cup, a draw was enough, but the Lions ended the match at Estádio 25 de Abril with a victory by the smallest margin.
Rúben Amorim made it into the starting eleven, João Virgínia, Gonçalo Esteves, Tabata and Tiago Tomás and in the first minutes Coates hit Nuno Macedo’s goalposts, but in the 16th minute, Tiago Tomás didn’t waste it and scored the first and only of the match.
Tiago Tomás was even close to it again, but this time goalkeeper Nuno Macedo got the better of it. The second half was marked by Tabata’s sending-off for accumulated yellow cards.
