The “Sand Warriors” have won the Portuguese cup after having won the league and the supercup earlier this season
The domestic season had a perfect ending for Sporting de Braga. The team from northern Portugal added the Portuguese Cup to the league and the supercup.
Bruno Torres’s team have confirmed their dominance in this specific tournament winning all the three editions that have been played so far.
The Estádio do Viveiro – Jordan dos Santos in Nazaré was the stage where the curtain fell on the Portuguese season.
“O Sótão” made history by reaching their first ever final, eliminating on European champions Casa do Benfica de Loures in the semi-finals, whereas Braga beat Sporting to secure a place in the decisive match.
Duarte Vivo put the local team ahead before Léo Martins equalised to send the match tied into the second period. It was then when a brace from Filipe Silva and goals from Diogo Oliveira and André Lourenço practically sentenced the game in the second period.
In the third period Alejandro Sales scored for “O Sótão” and Bê Martins signed the final result six goals to two.
