Vitória de Guimarães finally found their way back to victory by defeating Famalicão at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques. The evening was not easy for the Victorians, who were surprised very early on by the good offensive dynamics of the Famalicences, who took the advantage on a treacherous free kick from Pêpê Rodrigues.
The ball was burning at the feet of the local players and, at a time when Pepa was sighing after the break, to make the necessary corrections, here was a huge error appeared by Adrián Marín, who delayed the ball to Luiz Júnior but did not not see that he was there. The striker limited himself to pushing the ball into the goal and took everything level for the break.
The almost 10,000 spectators in the stands were sighing for more inspiration in the second half and it happened in the 47th minute: Rochinha received a ball inside the box, looked for the best angle of shot and fired with all conviction. The turnaround had been made, much to the delight of the Victorian hosts, but there was still plenty of time to play. Famalicão was looking for a draw, but only really improved with substitutions. Even so, the best chances until the end belonged to Vitória, Luiz Júnior spectacularly denying a goal to Janvier, on a long-range shot.
Vitória de Guimarães held up well at 2-1 until the end and ended in a three-game losing streak. Europe is far away, but at the castle we still dream…
Here is the summary :
