This Sunday, Portimonense won its first home victory, in the Primeira Liga, by 1-0, against Nacional da Madeira. A penalty, near the end of the match, converted by Fabrício, removed the team led by Paulo Sérgio – in condition – from the last place in the classification.

Portimonense started more dangerous and, after 6 minutes, was close to the goal. Anderson played for Fabrício, who, inside the area, shot on the half lap, slightly over the Nacional goal bar.

At 9′, it was Luquinhas who, in his first-team debut, shot from a distance, but the ball went to the side net.

After the greatest initial pressure from the Algarve, Nacional balanced the match and Portimonense began to struggle to reach the last island stronghold with danger.

Only in the second half, at 56′, Luquinhas, again with a shot from outside the area, truly scared Daniel Guimarães, who had to fly to deny the goal to Alvinegros.

Portimonense moved, charged in pursuit of the goal and, on minute 88, the newly entered Aylton shot against Júlio César, who deflected the ball with his arm, inside the area.

The referee consulted the VAR and pointed to the 11 meter mark. In converting the penalty, Fabrício did not miss and made the 1-0.

The goal had a special dedication to former Portimonense coach Vítor Oliveira, who died yesterday, and also for Lucas Fernandes who is seriously injured.

By the end of the match, the Algarvians managed to hold the insular response and conquered the three points, which put the team in the 16th place of the classification, with Farense and Boavista not playing yet.
