Imortal 1 - 1 Juventude Évora

Full report will have to wait until this afternoon, but there is sure to be an inquest. Juventude had a player sent off after just three minutes, Imortal scoring from the resulting free kick. For the remainder of the afternoon, they were often outplayed and outclassed by the ten men. A penalty awarded later in the game was saved, there was barely another shot on target.

IMORTAL ALBUFEIRA 1 - 1 JUVENTUDE ÉVORA

Yes, there will for sure be an inquest. Imortal were mostly ouplayed and outclassed by the ten men, managing only two shots on target in the whole game, including the penalty that was saved. Juventude had much the better of the second half, being more aggressive and better organised.

It was proper football weather, a blustery and cold wind affecting the long ball and there was rain in the air. Early drama. After just three minutes, Sandro Cabral and Kaio Xavier combined to break through the visitor's defence. Xavier was clean through on goal, only to be dragged back just outside the penalty area. Red card for the offender Marco Soares, free kick to Imortal.

Bruno Torres, who is becoming the team's dead ball specialist, stepped up and fairly lashed the ball past keeper Fernandes, a near replica of Ricardo Ramos´strike against Ferreiras two weeks ago.

Juventude responded with some neat play, but took a while to adjust to being a man down.   Imortal had a good chance to increase the lead on 16 minutes, but Tavares headed over from Torres corner from close range. Should have done better.

Gradually, Juventude got back into the game. Pereira saved well low down from a long range effort by Juah and a few minutes later a looping cross across the box evaded everyone, including two attackers.  The game started to be spoiled by a series of silly 'fouls' aided and abetted by an over officious referee. There were a total of 23 free kicks in the first half and a yellow card for Imortal's Fadigas for one of them.

Juventude should have equalised on the 33rd minute. Chaos on the Imortal defence left João Coelho with the ball at this feet and the open goal at his mercy from ten metres out. Somehow he managed to scoop it over the bar. That was one of only five attempts at goal in the half. At times the game resembled a school playground, everyone lashing out wildly at the ball amid a forest of legs.

Another cross by Juventude floated across the area, again everyone on both sides failed to connect.

Right on half time, Imortal thought they had scored a second but Tavares was ruled offside as he headed in a cross by Elvis Odukporo.

Whatever was said or consumed by Juventude during the interval had the desired effect. They came out looking really positive, putting Imortal under immediate  pressure. They were rewarded early on. Poor defending by Imortal allowed a deep cross, Coelho headed from point blank range. His effort was parried by Pereira but the industrious Matheus Pranke was on hand to slam home the rebound.

Three minutes later, Sandro Cabral was barged over in the penalty area, penalty given.  Torres' tame kick was easily saved, to the glee of the coachload of visiting fans.

Imortal's play was too laboured, too many passes were going astray. Then it started raining properly. Marocas had a cross tipped off his head by Juventude's keeper, but Juventude were in charge. So much so that one of their coaching staff was yellow carded for trying to stop Mamadu Baldé from taking a quick throw.

The last quarter of the game was much ado about nothing. Juventude played possession football to keep the point, Imortal had no answer. Four added minutes became six with a bit more play acting after 'fouls' plus time taken for substitutions by  the visitors to break up what little flow the game had.

Forty-two free kicks were given in all, mostly for offences that would not even be noticed in an English game.

Imortal are now eighth of fourteen teams in a congested middle of the table. Only four points separate fifth from tenth, with the high number of drawn games being noticeable among that group.

Next game for Imortal is a trip to Èvora to play the other team there, Lusitano.

IMORTAL ALBUFEIRA 1 - 1 SERPA

An unsatisfactory afternoon to say the least. Imortal dropped two points that should have been won. After almost complete domination, it was on 86 minutes that a poor piece of defending and to be fair an excellent shot that points were lost. Imortal are now on the brink of the relegation zone and with trip next weekend to leaders Atlético things are not looking too bright.

The game got off to an inauspicious start, with three free kicks awarded against Imortal in the first two minutes, then a blatant piece of shirt pulling by a Serpa defender not punished with a yellow card.

Imortal pretty much dominated the first half possession but failed to make the most of it. There was a decent chance after ten minutes, a cross by Santos was headed just wide at the far post by Ailton Tavares. Both sides were guilty of unforced errors, with poor passing very evident. There was one scary moment in front of the Imortal goal when Tidjane Baldé slipped while trying to clear, but luckily the Serpa attacker kicked him and not the ball.

Imortal took the lead on 26 minutes. Elvis Odukporo won a corner simply by being too slow in crossing the ball. Bruno Torres took it, the ball shot low across the goal eluding about eight players, Tavares was there on the far post for a simple tap in.

Serpa responded, Imortal's 'keeper Pereira flapped at a cross and missed, Baldé was on hand to block on the line. In one of many such theatricals, Imortal's striker Marocas went down after a tackle and was completely ignored by officials and team mates. While he was down Serpa got among the Imortal defenders, but neither striker nor defender could get to a loose ball, which rolled away to safety. Meanwhile back in the other half, Marocas rose rather sheepishly to his feet.

Serpa started the second half in a different frame of mind. They pressed Imortal from the beginning. There were loud yells for a penalty early on, nothing doing. Imortal's defenders had to deal with some rapid attacks. Ricardo Ramos felt the full force of one of them, being barged off the pitch into the big thing that goes under the pole vault jump, which earned a booking for Antonio Maior. Serpa brought on two very quick and useful looking subs, good job for Imortal they weren't there before. The pace of Wilson Marques down the right was a particular problem, aided by midfielder Pedro Francisco, who was all over the pitch directing things.  Francisco had a decent long range shot go just over, with Pereira looking questioningly at those in front of him. Close him down! A free kick from Castillo called Pereira into action on the half hour, the first proper save he had to make.

Srpa were on the front foot, trying to force errors. Baldé was on hand with a couple of timely interceptions. A crunching but fair tackle from Torres on Marques broke up another raid.

Imortal seemed to have ridden that storm. A counter attack, good work down the left by Domingues and cross that Sandro Cabral couldn't quite stretch to convert. He was hopping about after that and was subbed immediately after the equaliser.

Four minutes were left of the 90, Serpa had a corner. In it came, the first half shot was blocked then cleared, but it fell nicely to Castillo, about 25 metres out on the left. He fairly lashed the ball, clichés abound, a rocket past the helpless custodian into the far top corner.

Another corner to Serpa as the clock approached the end of normal time, breath was held, nothing came of it. Five minutes added time were announced, the first of which were taken up by the assistant going to get the board, fumble, fumble with the numbers, then getting back into position. So when the ref blew for time only four actual added minutes had been played. Cue Imortal's head coach having to be restrained from going to hit someone, there was a general pushing and shoving among all the players, subs and coaching staff. The GNR stirred themselves and went on the pitch to be seen to be doing something to prevent disorder. Curiously, amid all that, the only card seen was a yellow one for Tidjane Baldé.

Nerves are obviously jangling amid memories of that last match escape from relegation last season. A trip to league leaders Atlético next weekend won't help if others just below can pickup points.

Atlético 1 -1 Imortal a very good result at the league leaders considering recent form. There is no information yet posted about the game.

Imortal are 7th of 14 teams with five games to play.

Next Sunday they will be at home to Angrense and it's an 11:00am ko so the visitors can fly home to Azores that evening.

Hugo Santos scored in the 59th minute, the league leaders equalised on 77 and Imortal had no doubt to cling on through 7 minutes added time at the end at the cost of seven bookings. Atlético had five booked and went down to ten men on 80 minutes when one of them collected a second yellow. Another typical afternoon of Portuguese football!

Imortal 3 - 0 Angrense

Not the best game I have ever seen, but after five league games and one cup game without a win, almost anything is acceptable!

Head coach Moreira made two changes from last week's successful draw at leaders Atlético. Fábio Domingues replaced Bruno Torres (suspended) while Tidjane Baldé, disguised by a new hairstyle, replaced Elvis Odukporo, relegated to the subs bench.

A small crowd was in for the 11:00am kickoff, necessitated by the visitors travel arrangements for their long journey back to the Azores. Both teams started energetically on a sunny morning. Angrense had a good chance in the opening minutes, Soares was just unable to get to a deep cross. That was the pattern of their game for most of the proceedings and about as close as they got. Plenty of crosses, but no-one there. Imortal's 'keeper Pereira had just one save to make.

Imortal's opening goal was a rare score with his feet by captain Pedro Rodrigues. Good work down the right by Domingues, a cross was sent in not dealt with. Rodrigues, just about on the penalty spot has a age to line up his low hard shot which was slightly deflected past the goalkeeper.

Angrense responded. Cardoso sent in another of those big crosses which about eight players in the six yard box missed, then Simão tested Pereira, whose athletic tip-over save was roundly applauded. The resulting corner was swiftly followed by a second, Imortal's defenders blocked the shots and eventually the attacks fizzled out.

Imortal's striker Hugo Santos fell awkwardly onto his bacxk. a long stoppage ensued. He went off, rather unsteadily, came back on but within a minute had to go off for good. Elvis Odukporo replaced him. His first significant action was to completely mis-kick when making the cross would have been easier.

Imortal increased their lead in added time and a slightly bizarre goal it was. The Angrense 'keeper came a long way out of his goal to try to stop an attack. So did a couple of defenders. Somehow, in the melée, the goalkeeper slammed the ball against defender Fernandes. The ball rebounded fully 25 metres into the goal. Baldé tried to claim some credit!

Visitors heads understandably dropped. Imortal started the second half well, but Domingues shot miles over, Tavares forced a corner with a useful run into the box. Much of the second half was very frustrating for the home fans. Angrense defended deep, at times all eleven players were inside the penalty area. Ricardo Ramos almost scored the third with a well taken free kick which rebounded off the crossbar. The game was drifting off to sleep with five minutes of normal time remaining when subsitute Lusinho evaded an offside trap, sped off down the right wing to cross accurately for Odukporo, who had an easy tap in from short range.

Three points is three points taking Imortal into sixth place. Next week, Imortal have a long trip to the Azores to face Rabo Peixe, currently fourth.

Good win for Importal yesterday out in the Azores. A 37th minute goal by Fabio Domingues was enough to beat Rabo Peixe 1-0, who are 4th in the League.

Imortal now stand in 6th place with three matches remaining.

There is no game for Imortal next weekend.

Imortal game called off shortly before kickoff!

The two teams from the Azores involved in the relegation situation were unable to play yesterday beause the airport was closed to inbound and outbound flights. Because Imortal's opponents are also involved in the relegation struggle, the League ordered late on Sunday morning that the match should not be played and to be re-arranged for the same time as those involving the Azores teams. Which is now the highly unpopular time of 1530hrs on Wednesday!

Earlier today - Imortal 2 - 2 Oriental Dragon. Imortal finish 5th. Their opponents needed to win to avoid relegation. This and other results meant that they finished below the dotted line. Lots of sad faces at the end. Report tomorrow.

Imortal Albufeira 2 -2 Oriental Dragon

The Dragon came to this game knowing that they needed a win, with three other teams in the relegation zone also playing. No other result would do if others were winning.

Wednesday afternoon isn't the ideal time for playing. Imortal had eleven starters who we had seen, but the subs bench looked like a school outing! It was probably the same for the visitors from the Lisbon area.

The Dragon got off to a fiery start. They forced Imortal onto the back foot from the off, gaining two free kicks then a corner within the first two minutes. The corner was well taken to the far post, where Machado had a simple header to put his side one ahead. More pressure followed. One effort hit the foot of the post and only an expert interception by Imortal's captain Rodrigues prevented a certain second goal.

Imortal recovered, creating chances. Cabral shot way over the bar from the edge of the area then good work by Tidjane Baldé set up Bernardo but he shot wide. Tavares tried a shot from 40 metres when he spotted the ´keeper off his line. Went wide.  Rodrigues was off target with a free kick. Dragon went off at half time one up. There was much studying of phones. At that point they were ahead of the others in the drop zone.

We had the unusual sight of a man from the league telling the referee when to start the scone half, obvious to ensure that all the games got under way simultaneously.

Imortal came out after the break with more purpose and soon equalised. A good cross found Duarte on the far post. His good header looped high into the net beyond the goalkeeper's dive. The visitors pushed everyone forward. The very tall Agostinho forced his way past two defenders, but shot wide. Another long range effort had to be tipped round the post by Pereira. A very nippy right winger, Tiago Feiteira, was causing all kinds of problems. Luis Almeda earned himself a yellow card for a blatant trip as Feiteira sped away from a challenge. Hugo Santos headed off the line. All guns blazing for the Dragon.

Of necessity they left spaces at the back, which was their undoing with 15 minutes of normal time remaining. A long ball out of defence found Cabral on the left wing. He cut inside and laid on a perfect pass to Tavares, rushing down the middle. He let fly a tremendous first time shot from the edge of the area, hard and low. Keeper no chance.

The response was instant, at times Imortal had all eleven in defence. Reward came on 84 minutes after yet another corner. Pereira mis-handled, the ball dropped among several players. After a brief scramble, Agostinho toe poked over the line. 2-2 and more anxious studying of phones. New was that the other results were not going the way of the Dragon. They absolutely had to win. An injury halt on 42 minute gave everyone chance to draw breath. Imortal brought on one of the boys, a very tall striker name of Andre Sarim. Five added minutes were announced. Furious attacks by Dragon, more corners then a free kick on the edge of Imortal's area, almost on time, gave them one last chance, but the first kick hit the wall and the rebound was booted miles over.

At the end, some very sad faces. Imortal finished 5th, a creditable effort for a small club. And that's it until early September!

Imortal will begin the new season on Sunday 20th August with a trip to Barreirense, near Lisbon. The following Sunday, 27th, they will be at home to Juventude Évora. Then it's away again, this time another trip to Lisbon to Play Oriental on 3rd September.

10th September is the FA Cup first round, draw awaited.

I will have the complete fixture list deciphered some time over the weekend.

Hi guys,

Keen football fan and regular groundhopper here...although not the type you'll find noting down teamsheets and recording the goal times, although once i leave my 30's perhaps!

We're staying in Olhos De Agua in October and came across this forum due to some excellent content on http://www.algarvebus.info/imortal.htm - thanks to whoever created and keep this updated.

Looks like a game should be on v Louletano when i'm around so will be keen to attend.

Do kick off times usually get announced within a few weeks of the fixture and do we think this is likely to be 3pm on the Sunday?

any helps or tips would be great
