The third round played out last week still without the participation of SuperLiga clubs saw the professionals struggle against the so-called minnows. Liga da Honra (Championship) sides Gondomar, Beira-Mar, Maia and Chaves will be taking no further part in the knockout competition, having been beaten by second and third division teams. The greatest upset was provided by lowly Lagoa who beat Maia 4-2 away. Olhão struggled to overcome non-League Ponterrolense 2-1, Portimão achieving the same result against BC Branco while Marco and Odivelas were involved in a 10 goal feast, the favourites coming out 6-4 the better. Louletano were the only clear-cut winners of the round despatching Operario 5-1.
