Portimonense took the lead very early in the match, after just six minutes, through Gonçalo Costa, after a pass from Igor Formiga.

In the 28th minute, the home team saw their lives getting more complicated, with Adams being sent off, for a straight red, after a harsh tackle on Lucas Ventura.

Covilhã still had time to reduce the deficit, with a goal from Diogo Ferreira, in the 88th minute, which sealed the final result at 4-1 for Portimonense.

With this victory, Portimonense guaranteed their presence in the next round of the Portuguese Cup.
