A BOLA – Nacional returns to victory and sinks Académica (Liga 2)

Nacional found their way back to winning ways – they hadn’t won since February 13 – and beat Académica 3-1 in a 27th round game, plunging the students further into the bottom of the Liga 2 table – seven points behind Varzim, who will always play.

Playing at home, Marco Matias opened the scoring for the islanders in the 8th minute, and Académica missed the chance to equalise, with João Carlos, from the penalty spot, hitting the post.

In the second half, Nacional increased the lead through Rochez (55), Rouai (82) and Bruno Gomes to 90+2.

The Madeirans still dream of climbing, since they are sixth with 41 points, 6 points behind Feirense and Chaves, who will play again this Sunday. Académica is last with only 15 points.
