CARLSBERG DRAW WIN

Fielding only five players who survived from last season’s squad, Portimão football club repeated its Carlsberg League Cup initial phase first leg home draw at Feirense during the return encounter.

The resulting penalty shoot-out ended 5-6 in the visitor’s favour, sending the Algarveans through to the second stage together with Covilhã, Beira-Mar, Santa Clara, Trofense, Gil Vicente, Fatima and Estoril.

The last named are also Portimão’s away opponents for this Sunday’s start to the new 2009/10 Liga Vitalis season.
