Sp. Braga defeated Vitória de Setúbal on Sunday (2-1) and returned to equaling FC Porto in the lead just before the visit to the Dragon, which takes place on the next day. A triumph that came to be something suffered, due to the qualified response of the opponent in the second half. The first warning for the saddles came as soon as 50 seconds, when a shot from Fransérgio was returned by the bar. Shortly after the quarter-hour, the Sp. Braga scored even, due to the inevitable Dyego Sousa, who anticipated a departure from goal by Joel Pereira following a cross from Goiano. V. Setúbal responded immediately with the equalizer, by Éber Bessa, who stole the ball to Fábio Martins and beat Tiago Sá. An exceptional throw in a game dominated by the Arsenal players, who saw Joel Pereira avoid Fábio Martins' goal but not the bishop of Dyego Sousa, with a new header irreproachable, now in a cross of Esgaio and beating by anticipation Mano.
The second half was different, with V. Setúbal settling into the attack and creating two good chances to equalize for Jhonder Cádiz at 58 'and Eber Bessa at 65'. The warnings had an effect on the home team and Goiano was close to the goal that could definitely reassure him with a dangerous shot that went just beyond the post. Since that goal did not come, the Sadinos believed they could draw a draw, but the good organization of a team that will reach the Dragon on the next round with the label of invincible, which very few will be proud of in Europe, will prevail. soccer.
