Until the last minute. Until the last drop of sweat, our players fought, even with the round even harder and less an element in the field.
The finalist of the last season Portuguese Cup edition ends the campaign ,this year, with a show of wanting to and proud of who never gives up.
Pedro Martins approached the game with the maximum risk by placing an eleven in 4-2 -4:
Lionn, Habib, André Vilas Boas, Tiago Pinto;
Wakaso, Diego Lopes
Del Valle, Jebor, Tarantini, Marvin
At the 43 ‘ minute, following a corner, Éder makes the SC Braga goal, in a situation in which the referee does not signal an offside.
For the 2nd half, Pedro Martins puts in Ukra, in place of Tiago Pinto and on the 48 minute Jebor scores the equaliser.
By the end of the match Rio Ave FC would be reduced to 10 units with the red card to Habib.
With a draw Rio Ave Futebol Clube finished the dream of repeating the presence in Jamor. But that will be only postponed for later.
