FC Porto – Rio Ave: Dragon in the tenth heaven but with faith in his mouth

FC Porto reaches ten consecutive victories, in a game in which Rio Ave threatened a draw. Toni Martínez decided with a goal close to halftime.

More squeezed could not be. FC Porto continues to win, but it gives the impression of playing at the physical limits and it was almost by chance that Rio Ave didn’t come away with points from Dragão. In Vila do Conde there will be some secret to create problems for the blue and white people and, after winning the first round, Luís Freire’s team played very well again, selling defeat face-to-face. With a series of casualties in players usually in the starting line-up, such as Uribe, Otávio, Galeno and Evanilson, FC Porto found a way to add the tenth consecutive triumph and added three points that leave them, on condition, two behind leader Benfica.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that, before the dragons reached the saving goal, just after the break, the 0-0 would be the best news that Sérgio Conceição could take from the first half. Until that moment, the only team to create danger was Rio Ave and Diogo Costa saved the blue and whites from the disadvantage with a pair of amazing saves from shots by Samaris and Guga. However, we already know that in football everything can change in an instant and those final moments of the first half proved it: Wendell finally hit the ball and made a cross that Toni Martínez turned into 1-0 with a precious deflection for the Jhonatan’s beacon.
