The draw for the 3rd round of the Portugal FA Cup gives Premier Liga Portimonense a relatively easy tie against non-league Cinfães, whilst SC Olhanense face a tricky tie away at third level Sertanense (Castelo Branco region).

Two of the region’s non-league teams, who had fought their way through the first two rounds of the competition, were drawn away, Louletano at Bombarralense (Leira) and Farense have a long trip to take on Merelinense (Braga) in the far north. Lagoa are at home to Torreense.

Ties to be played on the weekend of October 16 and 17, with extra-time and penalties if necessary.
