Estoril Praia played this Sunday, September 22, in Rio Maior with Vilafranquense, in a match counting for the 6th round of LigaPro.
Tiago Fernandes’s team won 4-1 with goals from Daniel Bragança, Rafael Barbosa, Roberto and Marcos Valente, achieving their fourth win in the 2019/2020 LigaPro edition.
Rafael Barbosa was elected “Man of the MAtch” by users of the Estoril Praia app.
For Tiago Fernandes “the result is beneficial for us and does not reflect the difficulties we had. In the first half Vilafranquense was a very difficult team to penetrate, did not give us many spaces, defended with many people behind the ball line and we had to have some patience in the circulation of the ball. For the second half we corrected the tactical positioning of the team and we came back better, came in more evenly and ended up scoring two more goals and that gives the team confidence. We beat a tough opponent and my players are to be congratulated because they interpreted our ideas and they respected the Vilafranquense team, “said Coach Estoril Praia at the press conference after the game.
