Faro back on track

With new coach Mauro de Brito at the helm, promotion-chasing Farense enjoyed a 1-0 success over Pinhalnovense to keep tabs on current second division south leaders Mafra.

Prior to last Sunday’s league encounter the club from the Algarve’s capital played out a goal-less draw with Rapid Vienna within the context of the Atlantic Cup which also saw Danish side Silkeborg beat Albania’s Skenderbeu 4-2 at the same Stadium of the Algarve venue.
