Portimão setback

On-the-road Portimonense gave high-flying Arouca plenty to think about during last Saturday’s opening 45 minutes and should have taken the lead through Márcio Madeira or Simi by the interval. That wastefulness was punished by the home eleven who managed to assume control of the match soon after the restart and emerged the deserved 2-0 winners.

The Algarveans, who welcomed back winger Zambujo from league leaders Belenenses earlier this week, will be determined to make their chances count against bottom club Trofense this Saturday afternoon at their own municipal stadium.
