Olhanense fans on TV

The Portuguese television channel TVi screened a 15-minute programme on the Olhanense Expat Supporters Group last Tuesday evening.

The film, shot over two days prior to Christmas, featured the group as they prepared to travel to Lisbon for the league clash against the league champions in which the Algarve side put up a spirited performance but lost 2-0.

Benfica twice a week

As the Algarve Resident went to print Olhanense were contesting a Portugal Cup 5th round tie against league champions Benfica at the Stadium of Light.

Next Wednesday they return to the same venue in Lisbon for a League Cup match. In between there’s a small matter of a league match at V.Guimarães who surprisingly lost 2-1  at home to bottom club Naval last weekend.

The game is being shown live on Sport TV tomorrow (Saturday) night kick-off: 7.15pm.

Olhanense’s next home game is on Saturday, January 22 against Academica, kick-off 4.00pm.
