Farense started to lose, but there was still time to turn around and beat Penafiel by 2-1, in a game counting for the 28th round of the II Liga, played today, Saturday, at Estádio de São Luís.

With this result, the team Faro solidified its status as a candidate for promotion to the I Liga and jumped, on condition, to second place in the championship, while increasing the distance to Viseu, who are in 4th and lost the game they played this Saturday.

Farense reacted and managed to reach a tie in the 69th minute, through Elves Baldé.

The turnaround was consummated in the 90th minute, with a goal from outside the area by Lucão.

Farense now has 54 points in the II Liga, one more than Estrela da Amadora, who dropped to 3rd place, albeit with one game less.

Académico de Viseu, the other team that is in the race for maintenance – the first two go up directly and the third place will play in a playoff -, lost to Oliveirense and has 49 points.
