Imortal 2 - 0 Lusitano VRSA

Imortal made hard work of beating opposition who managed not a single shot on target over the whole match. It was not until mid way through the second period that Imortal made the breakthrough, Mateus scoring from close range after the 'keeper had twice fumbled the ball. That was after Lusitano had had a player sent off for two yellow cards. The second goal came from the penalty spot, literally the last kick of the game, after a series of incidents which saw two more visiting players sent off.

It was not, overall, a good spectacle. The first half was particularly dire, with Imortal mustering just two half decent goal chances. One fell to Mateus ten minutes before the end of the first 45, his first shot was blocked and the rebound sent wide. Fábio had a tame header easily stopped right on half time and that was about it. Lusitano offered no threat whatsoever, There was little clue as to what would unfold in the second half.

Imortal had obviously been told off at half time. Tidjane opened the second period with a  good first time shot that narrowly missed. He started to put in some good runs down the right wing, crossing well. Also effective in that area was the tireless Mateus, who send over  a great cross which the goalkeeper decided to let it fly, Oliveira's header crashed against the crossbar and off behind.

A second yellow card on 62 minutes reduced the visitors to ten men. Things started to get a bit nasty, there were some pretty wild challenges coming in from the visitors and as always a terrible sense of injustice when free kicks and yellow cards resulted.

A few minutes after the sending off, another cross was delivered, ´keeper and defence messed it up totally, the ball was bouncing all over the place until Mateus lashed it in from five metres. 1-0 Imortal.

Imortal still couldn't make much headway against the ten men and there were some nerves around the ground whenever they had the ball,  especially with the news that leaders Moncarapachense were losing. A win was vital for Imortal. The ten men pressed and did actually manage a shot but it was miles wide. Some more bad tackles, more yellow cards. Then one of the Lusitano coaching staff was 'sent off' for some remark. A moment later it all kicked off down in the corner with Imortal on the attack and yet another foul. A second yellow for the defender after a hack was followed by a melée in which the referee was pushed and shoved. Another red card and at least two more yellows. Imortal's players were pulling their opponents from the scene, but after a couple of minutes of disorder they were down to eight men. After that it was a matter of riding out the five minutes of added time. The score was made a bit better with a penalty, converted by Pelé, after a comical push by an obviously fed-up defender. 2-0 Imortal and a win that put them firmly into second place, two points behind Moncarapachense and with a game in hand. That's five clean sheets in the last seven games. Next game is away to Lagoa next Saturday.

If I were going, which I cannot as I am playing in a bowls match, I would take the 1325 Transrápido bus from Albufeira bus station to Lagoa, arrival 1405. The bus goes past the ground and into the bus station about 200 yards down the road. The ground is a bit of a dump, but the bar is OK.

Coming back, last time I went on the bus, it meant running like %$%$/ for the 1655 bus back as the next one isn't until 1830! Luckily for me it was three or four minutes late but with the amount of time the refs add on for substitutions and arguments it's a bit of a gamble - or miss the last 5 minutes or so.

I suppose the alternative is to walk the 3km to the little station at Estombar for the train at 1737 but that's also a pushing it a bit.

If you do go I hope it's worth the effort! I will be at the home game the following Saturday,

There's also Vitesse Arnhem v Livingston at Ferreiras on Friday afternoon.

The upshot of the melée at Imortal last Saturday was that two visiting players received a 1 match suspension, another received a two match ban and the fat bloke sent from the bench a 30 day ban and €30 fine.

Yesterday, Lagoa 1 - 1 Imortal. I was unable to go as my own sporting excellence was required on the bowling green. We won!

No ground lost by Imortal as leaders Moncarapachense also drew. Next game is at home to Messinense next Saturday.

I had the pleasure[?] of the Lagoa/Imortal game, on a nice sunny afternoon yesterday. 
Imortal were the better team overall, without creating much in the way of chances. Lagoa were a roughhouse bunch and after taking the barely deserved lead when a missh*t shot from twenty yards somehow bobbled through defenders and past the slow reacting custodian, they were prepared to stoop to any depths for the win.
Eventually late on, a wild Imortal shot [which might have hit the cornerflag] was luckily deflected to one of their wingers who calmly flicked it home.
Still there was time for a melee, in the last minute. Imortal hoofed a free kick into the Lagoa penalty area and a mad scramble ensued. Cue much screaming and falling over from both teams. Eventually the ball was booted upfield, and out came the handbags. Referee showed straight reds to a Neanderthal Lagoa centrehalf and a youthful, scrawny Imortal sub [I think]..... before blowing for full time.
