Sporting’s team beat Vitoria de Setúbal 3-1 and continue to pursue third place held by Famalicão.
Bonfim’s stadium was the scene of another Sporting victory, on 27 minutes they were already winning after a goal from João Meira, who played for the first time in the first league, and 7 minutes later, Bruno Fernandes scored the second for the Lions by penalty, the men of Setúbal still reduced by Carlinhos, with a massive shot in the second half.
If at this stage of the game was Setúbal who controlled the operations and had many opportunities to score, it was again Bruno Fernandes who closed the game at 90 + 4 minutes, scoring the third.
This game started surrounded by controversy, due to the request of postponement, motivated by the health of several players of Vitória de Setúbal, who were unavailable to go to the game, Sporting, however, did not accept the postponement.
That was why many non-holders of Setúbal came on the pitch, and if in the first half it was noticed, in the second it was Vitória who led the game and Sporting seemed to have the flu.
The start of the game was calm and without great opportunities on both sides and it was necessary to score the goal of João Meira, after Bolasie’s play and de Ristovski’s cross to celebrate the goal and the arrival of the ball to one of the goals.
Bruno Fernandes scored the second, with a penalty that ended the first half in Setúbal. The second started with an opportunity for Wendel, who decided to give the ball to a teammate when he should have shot.
Setúbal ended up scoring after 63 minutes with a great shot from Carlinhos, and then we only had Setúbal, with many chances to equalize, but not as effective or as effective as André Sousa’s shot that sent the ball to the post.
Already after 90, Sporting, by Bruno Fernandes, scored again, establishing the final result, but Silas, also had bad news, Coates will not play the classic with Benfica, by the accumulation of yellow cards, and Vietto is in doubt by physical limitations.
Setúbal keeps the tenth place at the end of the match as Sporting the fourth to one point of Famalicão.
