Sporting is the first finalist of the Portuguese Cup in futsal. Nuno Dias’ team beat Quinta dos Lombos 4-1, in a match dominated by the lions. With a strong entry, always on top of the opponent, Carvavelos’ team resisted the harassment of Schutt’s goal (one of the best on the field) and reached the break with just two goals down with Tomás Paçó and Waltinho making the difference.
Very organized, with well-defined processes, Quinta dos Lombos was still threatening Guitta’s goal at the start of the second half, but Pany Varela’s goal was a severe blow to the aspirations of Carvavelos’ team that, despite the defeat, left an excellent image at Sines Multipurpose. The lions move forward and thus guarantee the first passport to decisions. Marítimo and Benfica, at 9 pm, will discuss tonight the other spot for the final game scheduled for next Saturday.
