Futsal: Rio Ave fights but does not avoid defeat

Rio Ave FC received, this afternoon, the SL Benfica in Vila do Conde for another game for the futsal first league. For this match, Paulo Morim, can not count on Ruben Reis (suspended) and Manuel Silva (option).

The “rioavistas” formation aligned with the following initial 5: Bruno Santos, Lincon, Pedro Silva, Cristiano and Renato Pontes.

The game began in the best way for our team, it was the minute 2 of the match and Lincon, with a strong shot, advanced the Vilacondenses in the match. The “rioavistas” still celebrated and Benfica equalize the match by Fernando. At half-time the tie was maintained in the marker.

In the second half, Rio Ave FC entered again strong and determination but it was the red and white team to reach the goal. Franklin at minute 30 puts Benfica ahead in the match. With the goal conceded, the “rioavistas” formation shook a little and the next minute suffers the 1-3 by Henmi. Even with the unfavorable result, Rio Ave FC never threw the towel to the ground and fought until the last ball in the game. With our team balanced forward, Benfica eventually increased the advantage and killed the match. The final result, 1-5, but Rio Ave FC left the match with the head raised of a game that was expected very complicated.

On the next round, Rio Ave FC hosts Unidos Pinheirense, counting for the Portuguese Futsal Cup.
