Sporting's second came through Viktor Gyokeres. The cross was from Pote with the Swedish forward appearing at the near post (29′).

Farense knew how to react and reduced it with a great goal from Belloumi who shot in an arc with no chance for Franco Israel (33′).

The Algarve team appeared very well in the second half and even managed to equalize, with a header from Zé Luís following a corner (51′).
