LAGOS 4 - 3 IMORTAL ALBUFEIRA

A stoppage time winner gave Lagos the points in an end to end game, an entertaining match, not the usual end of season affair. Both teams were guilty of horrible mistakes, gifting goals to the opposition. That and the gusting wind making the ball do tricks, made for an eventful afternoon for the small crowd of around 60.

Imortal came back from 2-0 down to level, went behind once more equalised again with 15 minutes remaining but could not hold on.

Imortal kicked off into the wind. Lagos made a good start, forcing three corners in the first ten minutes. The game swung from end to end with, remarkably, fewer free kicks than shots during the first half. The first of the giveaways came on 15 minutes when Lagos inexplicably sent a free kick on halfway straight to the feet of Imortal striker Flavinho. Rather startled perhaps, he shot off towards goal but ultimately his shot was weak and easily saved. Chances came and went. Cassioano had two decent efforts saved by Lagos 'keeper Candeias, then he headed over from 5 yards when totally unmarked. Pereira, in goal for Imortal tipped a shot onto a post and safety, a good sliding tackle by hard working midfielder Mateus stopped an attack dead in its tracks. As the radio commentator said, it was a good competitive game, one that Lagos could not afford to lose if they wanted to finish second.

The breakthrough and first goal for Lagos came on 35 minutes. A long cross was floated over from the right wing, Imortal's defence left it to each other and Chamusca was on hand to score on the far post. The second was shortly after,  Imortal were defending too high up the pitch when a through ball out of defence found Jorge Teixeira in acres of space just inside the Imortal half. He raced off towards goal, unopposed and scored with a nice low shot.

That lead was not to last long. Almost from the re-start, Imortal were on the attack. A deep cross was held up by the wind, Mateus headed it gently back the way it had come, Elvis was alert enough to run onto the loose ball and score from just inside the penalty area. Half time 2-1 to Lagos.

Imortal came out early for the second half and it looked as if Lagos were still in the changing rooms as within a minute it was 2-2. Chico, who again had a good game in midfield, latched onto a poor pass, threaded a pass through to Mateus who calmly shot low and hard past Candeias.

Lagos responded and restored their lead within five minutes. Imortal's defence was all over the place, leaving Texeira unmarked in front of goal. He didn't miss. Pereira was not happy.

Back it went to the other end, Cassiano was a boot size too small to convert a very good cross from Flavinho. The wind wasn't helping Imortal much, as is often the case passes were over-hit as the wind grew stronger.

Imortal pressed, a penalty came their way when Cascalvo was brought down. No big arguments, Tidjeane converted the spot kick to make it 3-3 with twenty minutes remaining.

Texeira should have wrapped it up for Lagis but he took too long over his shot, defenders en masse blocked his effort. Both teams strove for the winner, defending became a bit desperate in the closing minutes. Cassiano had half a chance on 45 minutes but the wind took a free kick away from him, he didn't know where the ball was and the opportunity was lost.

Lagos' winner came after two minutes of added time. Elvis, the goalscorer and who had been playing in midfield, had been moved back into defence following a series of substitutions. He failed to deal with a cross, presenting the ball to Texeira who couldn't miss from his place almost on the goal-line. it could have been worse. A minute later Tidjeane was booked for a foul, the resulting free kick hit the post and bounced away. That was the final kick of the game.

Imortal 2 - 1 Silves

A nice sunny afternoon, a bit windy at times, pitch in excellent shape.

Imortal held on for win in an eventful game in which even one of the ball 'boys' was sent off. Silves were six points behind leaders Ferreiras at the start of play. When word came through that Ferreiras were losing and with the score here 2-1,  they threw everything at Imortal in a frantic last twenty minutes. But to no avail.

Imortal had the better of the first half from the off, when a deep cross by Chico, who had a very good game, was headed by a defender against his own crossbar. He followed that with a shot which was straight at the goalkeeper, then set up Oliveira with a great pass, but the shot just skimmed over the bar. Silves almost scored a lucky goal  on twelve minutes when Imortal 'keeper Pereira completely misjudged  a floated free kick that hit the far post and bounced just past two onrushing forwards with no-one else moving.

The game settled into a midfield struggle, players running about, going up and down, lots of petty fouls, with no scoring chances created.

Just before the interval Imortal did have a couple of moments, first Cassiano headed straight at the goalkeeper from 5 yards after a good clearance by Pereira  to Tidjeane on the right wing, who made a great run past two defenders and put in a good cross.  Moments later came the first goal. Cassiano turned provider down the left wing, a good low cross to the far post wasn't dealt with and Oliveira was on hand to score from close range. Video clip - https://pt-pt.facebook.com/imortalfans/videos/1845747052113803/ - 1-0 to Imortal at half time.

Silves were very slow coming out for the second half and looked to be still receiving the team talk when Imortal went further ahead just two minutes in.  Defenders were all over the place as Chico chipped a neat pass over them to Cassiano, who finished with a good low and hard shot from just inside the penalty area.

Silves responded, Pereira made a good save in his first action for a long time. News that Ferreiras were behind came in, Silves cranked up the pressure but some wild finishing let them down. Silves attacked non stop, they were getting ratty even when being awarded free kicks.  A potential game changing incident in the 26th minute of the second saw Oliveira getting booked for a poor challenge then arguing about it, resulting in him being sent off.

Right from the re-start, Silves surged forward and caught Imortal's defence on the back foot. A ball across the box was not cleared, Olmeira prodded home from close range in a replica of Imortal's opener.

Chico was subbed to make the defence stronger. Silves pressed and pressed, dominating the game but got nowhere. Every clearance by the host's defence was being cheered. Imortal were now employing every trick in the book to break the flow of play, even the ball boys (old and young) were getting their instructions. Free kicks abounded, mostly for minor fouls committed by Imortal. Pereira was booked for time wasting, then just before the end of the normal 90 minutes an older ball boy gathered the spheroid a few yards behind the goal-line and threw it away as a desperate Silves player dashed towards him. There was pushing and shoving, hands were raised, which ended up with a red card for the Silves player and the ball 'boy' being told to remove himself from the pitch.

Pereira made a great catch to deny a mass of opponents just before eight minutes of added time was announced. Such had been the nature of the game, the first and only corner of the second half was not until five of those eight minutes had elapsed. Silves created nine chances at goal in that second half, with only that one success.

Imortal can be pleased with taking four points off the second placed team in this second phase. Silves have now only a mathematical chance of the title and promotion, but that would require Ferreiras to lose both their remaining games and Silves to win both. Unlikely.

Imortal's next game is away at Lagos next Saturday, ko time unknown as fixtures are not yet on the Algarve FA website.

IMORTAL 1 - 0 MESSINENSE

Poor end of season stuff, in which Imortal dominated for almost the whole game without finding a way to break the visitors massed defence. The winning goal was a well worked free kick five minutes before the end of normal time, giving Imortal their first win of the second phase at the seventh attempt.

The afternoon was sunny until a few minutes before the end when it rained, and it was quite windy, the ball was not easy to flight. Passing was rather wayward at times. Chances to score were few and far between, the teams managing only six attempts on target between them.

The first chance went to Imortal's wing back Tidjeane, a free kick which he completely wasted by kicking it straight at the ´keeper. Imortal's only other decent first half chacne fell to Cascalvo, but he slipped as he shot, the ´keeper saved easily. Oliveira and Flavinho were as poor as they were in Wednesday's cup tie, they just couldn't get into the game. 0-0 at the interval after an uninspiring 45 minutes.

Messinense started the second half with the wind slightly in their favour, they maanged some half decent midfield play but did nothing with it. Tidjeane was booked for a foul after 10 minutes, then  Imortal regained control. Flavinho was robbed by a nasty bounce, Oliveria collided with the goalkeeper chasing a through ball. He didn't know he was offside and it hurt! As the sky darkened and the rain began to fall, Messinense had a few moments and actually managed a couple of 'shots' but neither worried Imortal 'keeper Pereira in the least.

A wild effort by Flavinho on 26 minutes was Imortal's first shot of the half. Tidjeane sent in a long range swerving shot that tested the visitor's goalie, who then decided he needed a rest. That's two goalkeepers this week who claimed to have cramp!

Forty minutes had passed, a goal was looking very improbable. Imortal were awarded a free kick wide right, which was taken by Cascalvo, the scorer of the two free kicks on Wednesday. He floated the ball to the far post where it was met by the head of sub Mamadu Baldé, perhaps the smallest player on the field. His header from 5 metres was low and accurate, goal scored!

Five minutes were added, nothing more happened.

Imortal's next game is this coming Saturday at home to promotion outsiders Silves, ko 1600hrs / 4pm

Match stats - the numbers tell all!

Free kicks conceced : Imortal 13, Messinense 20
Offside : Imortal 2, Messinense 3

Imortal 1 - 0 Messinense - Imortal's first win in the second phase at the seventh attempt.  An untidy end of season affair livened up by a well worked late winning goal. Report tomorrow.

ALGARVE CUP SEMI FINAL

Imortal 3 - 4 Almancilense

Not a full report as usual as I was in company with drink being consumed. A see-saw game in which Imortal clawed their way back from 3-1 down to 3-3 only to be denied by a unlucky own goal near the end.

Imortal were again lacking captain and centre half Rodrigues and again it showed. The makeshift defence was shredded twice during the first half, giving the visitors a 2-0 lead (including a penalty) after a good start by Imortal. Imortal did have chances but they were not taken, chief culprits, they were to be throughout the game, were Cassiano and Oliveira who were not decisive enough when it came to taking a shot.

Imortal pulled one back right on half time, an expertly taken free kick by Cascalvo from the corner of the penalty area beat the very tall figure of Gabriel in the visitors goal.

2-1 at half time and a glimmer of hope.

Didn't last long as Almancilense restored their lead with Imortal's defence caught on the break. But, to their credit, Imortal came back into the game and another free kick by Cascalvo from 20 metres out was lofted over the wall and just out of the 'keeper's reach.

Pressure continued and was rewarded with a penalty given for handball. Some debate over who should take it, captain for the day goalkeeper Pereira gave the ball to Tidjeane, who scored nicely from the spot.

Chances fell to both teams, Pereira had to make two good saves while at the other end Chico rattled the crossbar with an excellent shot from distance. He had earlier been the victim of a very poor challenge which resulted in a red card for the offender. Imortal did manage to exploit the numerical difference, but twice Oliveira failed to shoot when clear on goal and Cassiano muffed another shot from close range.

Time was running out when Pereira was adjudged to have handled the ball outside his area. The free kick was looped in to the far post, hit the post past Pereira's dive, then struck the back of his head on the ground and rebounded into the net. 4-3 to Almancilense, who then shut up shop to wind down the clock.

A disappointing end to what was otherwise a good value game for €2!

Yesterday, Quarteirense 1 - 0 Imortal I was unable to go owing to lack of buses Vilamoura to Albufeira at 6pm on a Saturday. Would have gone if we were top of the table, but not with a 90 minute wait for a bus when we are not going to be in the frame.

Next game is of course the Algarve Cup semi final on Wednesday (Liberation Day holiday) at 1600hrs / 4pm. See you there.

Off topic but mentioned earlier and I will add it here anyway, the crowd at Belenses v Sporting on Sunday was 5167, about double their normal crowd but the stadium was only just over a third full. I would imagine that 815pm on a Sunday night isn't the most popular time to go and watch football, even here.

Shows how much Sky know about football before the Premier League was invented! Anyway, match report from Saturday.

FERREIRAS 2 - 2 IMORTAL Attendance 270 approx. Imortal in red.

Imortal frustrated Ferreiras to the nth degree in a fairly typical local derby. The two sides managed only seven shots on target between them, there were the four goals, neither goalkeeper was otherwise really tested. Yellow cards aplenty, especially in the second half and Imortal's late equaliser resulted in the dismissal of Ferreiras defender Colação.

Imortal were without the services of captain and centre back Pedro Rodrigues, for reasons as yet unknown.  That caused  a change around in defence, however whatever number 15 Elvis may be as a player, he is not a commanding and ball winning centre half. And it showed early on. Ferreiras went ahead in the second minute, a swift move through the middle ended by with a shot from Jorge Correira from ten metres.  After that, the game settled in the midfield battle it was for almost the entire match. Up and down it went.



A combination of reasonable, no risk, defence and terrible passes kept the number of shots to a minimum. Imortal gradually improved and were rewarded ten minutes before half time when a hopeful pass fell nicely for Mateus on the corner of the penalty area. He was alert enough to heft it first time towards goal, 'keeper  Borges wasn't quite quick enough with his reaction and the ball sailed past him into the far corner - pic below.



The second half began in the same manner. Both sides scrapping. It was becoming a little tetchy. Then, after twelve minutes, a horrible give-away by Baldé on half way gave Ferrieras an opening. Several passes later, Correia was on hand again to side foot past Pereira in the Imortal goal to restore the home side's advantage. But it was not to be improved on. The misplaced passes brought groans from the crowd, made worse by the news that title rivals Silves were losing. The game ground on, Ferreiras were getting nowhere. The tetchiness increased, four Imortal players saw yellow including goalkeeper and Captain for the day Pereira, who ran half the length of the pitch to offer his thoughts to the ref after a fairly nasty challenge. The Ferreiras player was booked as well.



Imortal had the better of the scant chances on offer, China was just wide with a nice little chip shot and Cassiano hit a post from distance. Oliveira had a shot painfully blocked, China hit the rebound straight at the´keeper.

Five minutes of added time were announced. Imortal continued to press, reward came from a scramble in the penalty area and Tidjeane (number 10 below) lurking on the edge was on hand to come forward and toe poke it into the net.


Cue wild celebrations on the one hand, much muttering on the other which finished with Colação's sending off.

We are halfway through the second phase. Imortal have drawn four and lost one of their five games, so we are going nowhere. Defeat though for Silves leaves Ferreiras three points ahead of them at the top.

Next Saturday Imortal travel to Quarteirense, while Ferreiras host Lagos who beat Silves on Saturday.

Imortal report this afternoon. Had to dry out notebook inadvertently kept in football bag yesterday morning!
"
Interesting that the Lisbon Police can look after the three biggest clubs in the country and Beleneses in the same city on the same day."

Liverpool police had the Grand National and Liverpool at the same time for the first time ever I read. But few away fans travel here, even for a local derby, but the guns, water cannon, long batons and tear gas (which UK police cannot use) remain a deterrent to bad behaviour.
