Reminder and update following loss of recent posts

Imortal's next to last game is today,. Saturday 11th, at home to second placed Moncarapchense ko 1700hrs / 5pm.

At the same time leaders Lagos play Almancil.

Current top of the table :

Lagos 55 points goal difference +7
Moncarapachense 55 points goal difference +4
Imortal Albufeira 53 points goal difference + 5

Next Saturday in the final game of the season Imortal will be away to the 11 Esperanças while Moncarpachense play Lagos.

All kinds of possible scenarios therefore, but the bottom line is that Imortal need to win today!

Yesterday Imortal 1 - 1 Moncarapachense so the title is now out of reach.

I hope they got our goal on video. It was an absolute rocket from 30 yards by captain and centre back Pedro Rodrigues, very reminiscent of that hit by Vincent Kompany last week.

More tomorrow.

Imortal 1 - 1 Moncarapachense

The win that Imortal needed to stay in the title race was not to be. Moncarapachense's game plan worked to restrict Imortal to just six goalscoring chances all afternoon. Paollo Oliveira was double marked and barely got a look-in, although he did hit a goalpost with a first time effort after a poor clearance and one time shot from distance when he should have passed.

Imortal's goal was very like that scored by Vincent Kompany last week, a screamer on the hour by captain and centre back Pedro Rodrigues hit from 35 yards that hit the top corner of the goal. But the vital lead lasted only a few minutes. Imortal's defence was not concentrating at a free kick, which was delivered onto the near post by Camacho and nodded past a helpless 'keeper by Diogo Romeiro.

So far as Moncarapachense are concerned, they host leaders Lagos  in the final game of the season next Saturday. Lagos are two points ahead, a draw will do for them while Moncarapachense must win.

Imortal will finish second if they beat the 11 Esperanças next week and Moncarapachense lose or draw. Only the league winners get promotion.

There was a good crowd in, difficult to estimate but certainly several hundred. Plenty of noise too  and the stadium is looking very nice now that the refurbishment of the main stand is complete.

The visitors were content to sit back and let Imortal do the work for most of  the time on a hot sunny afternoon. They did manage a shot from a free lick kick after seventeen minutes, but that sailed way over the bar. The referee was one of those who feels that football is a non-contact sport. Imortal conceded five free kicks in the first ten minutes and over the match there was a total of 39 free kicks for 'fouls'.

Few chances to score came anyone's way with defences on top. Twenty minutes in Imortal centre-back Calado headed a corner powerfully but straight at the 'keeper. Time and again Imortal's wing-backs were getting into good positions, but the final ball was almost always poor. A breakout by Moncarpachense won them a corner which Pereira clutched out of the air, no doubt pleased to be in the action.

Paollo Oliveira, normally Imortal's main threat, was closely marked by two defenders and became increasingly frustrated, going down perhaps too easily at times.  Had he stayed on his feet a little longer, he may have been better off. Still, later in the game when he did so, he was penalised every time he won the ball back. He did manage to escape his markers on the edge of the penalty area to hammer a poor clearance against a goalpost. The ball bounced right across the goal and eventually off for a throw.

Half time and no score, hardly surprising when the sum total of shots was five, the wayward free kick being the visitors only effort.

Imortal knew they had to make more of the possession. After a slow start to the second half, a good through ball gave Oliveira a half chance but the goalkeeper reacted well and came out to smother the ball before he had full control.

Fifteen minutes into the second half and Imortal went ahead, a goal well worthy of a higher stage. A goal out of nothing. Rodrigues picked up a crossfield pass just inside the half, took a  few steps and let fly from all of 35 yards. The accurate shot hit the top corner giving the 'keeper no chance.

Here's the goal on video courtesy of Imortal's Facebook page - https://pt-pt.facebook.com/imortalfans/videos/2328309367407035/

The lead lasted only a few minutes, Moncarapachense equalising on 21 minutes from a free kick with Imortal's defence not paying attention.

Moncarapachense didn't so much as park the bus after that but deploy a whole fleet of them. Imortal tried but couldn't break through. The crowd was getting quiet, with only occasional insults to be hurled at the officials and visiting players, who were slowing down the game at every opportunity. Oliveira's frustrations grew and eventually he was booked for offering the referee his opinion about matters.

Five minutes additional time was shown. Imortal won a free kick in a good position right at the end, everyone was up. The ball fell to Oliveira, his shot was blocked and his attempt to get the ball back penalised.

At first it was rather quiet around the ground at the final whistle but athen there was generous applause for Imortal's efforts over the season. A couple of poor results against lower teams was the difference.

The 'reward' for finishing second or third is a place in next season's Portugal FA Cup, the first games of which are usually played a couple of weeks before the Algarve League season starts ie the second weekend of September.

Imortal's last game is away at the 11 Esperanças next Saturday.
