This Sunday, for matchday 21 of Liga NOS, Vitoria de Guimaraes and Porto faced each other. At Estadio do Rei, both teams played well and the match was very disputed, with good chances for both sides. With the own goal from Douglas de Jesus and the one scored by Moussa Marega, the visitors got a 2-1 victory. Bruno Duarte scored for the hosts.

The match started with a lot of emotions. Right at the 10th minute, in a play on the left, the ball was crossed into Vitoria’s box and Sergio Oliveira sent a powerful shot to the goal. It exploded on the right post and hit goalkeeper Douglas de Jesus’ back, before going into the back of the net to open the scoring for the Dragons.

After that, Porto was still that team that created more chances, which obligated Vitoria’s goalkeeper to make some good saves in order to avoid the visitors’ second goal. The hosts had some chances during the first half, but it was in the second half that they were able to score the equalizer.

Vitoria SC had a blitz in the first minutes and, at the 49th minute, Ola John got the ball on the left, passed by at least 5 players, and crossed it to Bruno Duarte, who was unmarked, to head into the back of the net and past goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin.

The Conquers kept making pressure and were the brightest side during a period of time, having the chance to score and get a comeback. However, it was Porto who found the second goal, at the 60th minute. Moussa Marega received a long ball into the edge of the box and sent it over Vitoria’s goalkeeper to give the victory to the Dragons.

It was kinda sad that after Marega’s winner, local fans started singing racist chants against the Porto striker. He asked to be subbed off due to the hostile atmosphere and left the pitch visibly in pain. That shouldn’t be happening by now. Keep strong Marega! Keep on scoring goals, a thing that you know how to do really well!

With the 3 points, Porto remains in second place, but now the difference to the leader is just 1 point, once Benfica lost to Braga. Vitoria de Guimaraes stopped at the 28 points and dropped to the 9th position.

The Dragons come back to the field on Thursday when they will travel to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen for Europa League’s round of 32. The Conquers rest the week and will play against Aves on Friday, away from home.
