Porto ganha ao Marítimo e continua a pressionar…

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 10:20 pm
Porto 1 – 0 Marítimo

FC PORTO – Vítor Baía; Bosingwa, Jorge Costa, Pedro Emanuel e Leandro; Ibson, Costinha e Diego; Ricardo Quaresma, Hélder Postiga e McCarthy.

MARÍTIMO – Marcos; Briguel, Van der Gaag, Tonel e Eusébio; Wénio e Cheinho; Luís Filipe Silas e Manduca; Bibishkov.
Árbitro: António Costa (Setúbal)
Assistimos a uma excelente primeira parte com o Porto a evidenciar melhorias no desenvolvimento do seu futebol e a tomar a iniciativa do jogo mas com o Marítimo a responder bem e a jogar no campo todo. Marcos no 1º. quarto de hora teve duas excelentes intervenções a remates de McCarthy. Aos 25′ o Marítimo teve um canto a seu favor e criou perigo sendo Leandro a afastar a bola que ia para a baliza. Logo a seguir o Porto chega ao golo após jogada de Hugo Postiga com remate deste para defesa incompleta de Marcos estando lá McCarthy para na recarga fazer o golo fácilmente. Todavia este golo surge dum grande equivoco do juiz auxiliar porque aquando do remata de Postiga Mccarthy estava claramente adiantado em posição de fora de jogo e foi essa posição ilegal que lhe permitiu a recarga.

Aos 33′ o Porto através dum remate de longe de Diego chega ao golo que não valeu. O mesmo juiz assistente que deixa validar um golo falso marca agora um fora de jogo posicional quando o remate de Diego é de bem longe. Um grande coro de assobios e no minuto seguinte amarelo para Jorge Costa por pontapear Bibiskov, dando origem a um livre que podia ser perigoso mas que “não deu nada”.
A segunda parte não foi tão interessante. O Marítimo equilibrou mais o jogo que podia ter o desfecho decidido se Diego converte uma grande penalidade aos 52′ cometida(?) por Briguel (que viu amarelo) sobre Postiga. A falta existiu, mas o local pareceu fora da área. Marcos defendeu e o resultado continuava em aberto até porque o Marítimo disfrutou de uma soberana ocasião de empatar por Tonel de cabeça, com uma soberba defesa de Vítor Baía a garantir a vantagem.

As aspirações do Marítimo sofreram, porém, um revés com o 2º. amarelo e consequente expulsão a Briguel. Vieram as substituições e mais uns amarelos distribuidos para ambos os lados, mas o triunfo dos locais confirmou-se, sendo um resultado justo. Já se falou o suficiente da arbitragem para que se conclua sobre a categoria da sua “performance” principalmente do juiz assistente já referido que ainda errou mais ao assinalar um fora de jogo inexistente a Manduca na 2ª. parte.

Porto e especialmente Benfica aguardam agora o desfecho do grande jogo de amanhã Braga- Sporting colocando os “leões” em pressão porque só a vitória lhes interessa.

Nos outros jogos da jornada de hoje os resultados foram os seguintes:

Setúbal 2 – 0 Rio Ave (Rio Ave em queda com 2ª. derrota consecutiva)
Gil Vicente 1 -1 Leiria (empate que quase garante a permanencia aos gilistas)
Nacional 4 – 1 Estoril (Como se esperava depois daquele jogo frente ao Benfica, Estoril a caminho da 2ª. Divisão, sendo último da tabela)
Moreirense 0 -0 Beira Mar ( condenaram-se reciprocamente com este empate)
 

Benfica: Faltam três finais…

Benfica 1 – 0 Belenenses

BENFICA – Quim; Miguel, Luisão, Ricardo Rocha e Dos Santos; Petit e Manuel Fernandes; Geovanni, Nuno Assis e Simão; Nuno Gomes

BELENENSES – Marco Aurélio; Amaral, Wilson, Pelé e Sousa; Rui Ferreira; Neca, Andersson e José Pedro; Antchouet e Paulo Sérgio.

Árbitro: Mário Mendes (Coimbra)

Mais um jogo em que o Benfica teve muitas dificuldades para ganhar mas em que só a vitória do Benfica poderia ocorrer. Paradoxal mas verdadeiro. Ultimamente os jogos do Benfica são um ataque massivo duma equipa e outra com os 11 jogadores na grande área defensiva e imediações.

No fim da primeira parte Quim (regressou à baliza do Benfica) não tinha tocado na bola. O número de cantos era de 11-1 a favor do Benfica. Uma bola salva em cima da linha por Sousa com a bola a bater na barra. Duas ou três excelentes defesas de Marco Aurélio. Um penalty por marcar por falta de Neca sobre Nuno Gomes aos 24′, mas 0 -0 no marcador.

Na segunda parte a situação não se alterou muito; aos 49′ um grande pontapé de Petit vai de encontro à barra da baliza do Belenenses. A pressão encarnada ia-se diluindo e Trapattoni faz as substituições do costume começando por entrar Mantorras para o lugar de Nuno Assis (55′) e aos 63′ Karadas para o lugar de Nuno Gomes. No Belenenses sai Antchet para entrar Lourenço. Aos 66′ mais uma jogada de ataque encarnado pareceu-nos de Ricardo Rocha a bola vai ao corpo de Amaral e depois ao braço. Não há dúvidas quanto a isso, dúvidas há sim quanto à intencionalidade. O árbitro assinalou o penalty que Simão converteu e pôs o Benfica a ganhar.

Depois do golo, então sim o jogo mudou. Carvalhal a perder faz entrar Ruben Amorim para o lugar do defesa Rui Ferreira e o Belenenses avançou no terreno. Um remate de longe de Paulo Sérguio quase atraiçoava Quim desatento, a defender para a frente com Lourenço a surgir para a recarga que fez muito ao lado, queixando-se de falta de Ricardo Rocha.

A arbitragem de Mário Mendes foi contestada pelo treinador do Belenenses falando de dois penalties (pretensamente um não marcado a favor e outro que não deveria ter sido marcado contra). Trapattoni nas declarações do fim do jogo lembrou-lhe o penalty da 1ª parte sobre Nuno Gomes, não marcado. Enfim…

Académica já vai em 11 jogos sem perder… Abril 29, 2005

Filed under: Académica,Boavista,Futebol — looking4good @ 11:29 pm
Desta vez a vítima foi o Boavista

Académica 1- 0 Boavista

Um golo de Luciano ainda na primeira parte (aos 36′) deu o triunfo à Académica sobre o Boavista no primeiro jogo da Jornada 31 da Superliga portuguesa e deixa o Boavista em maus lençóis para garantir um lugar nas competições europeias da próxima época onde terá de contar com a rivalidade do Vitória de Guimarães. A Académica essa garantiu a permanência na Superliga e colecciona o 11º jogo consecutivo sem conhecer a derrota, performance que a coloca como uma das melhores equipas da 2ª. volta do Campeonato.
