Controversial penalty annuls Farense's good performance in Alvalade

Olhanense thrashes Ferreiras and still dreams of playoff in Portuguese Championship - Diario diariOnline Região Sul

Farense was defeated by the minimum margin (1-0) by Sporting on Saturday night, at Estádio José Alvalade, in a game of the 10th round of the 1st League of football, thanks to a very controversial penalty converted by Sporar when «falling from cloth".

The Algarve team cut the main offensive routes of the championship leader until the decisive move, punishing Rafael Defendi's foul (sent off for accumulating yellow cards) over Feddal – the goalkeeper seems to touch the ball before hitting the head of the “Leonino” central, signed by the Slovenian striker at 90 + 1 minutes.

In the first part, Farense had its best periods. In a low block, he prevented Sporting from creating danger and left with danger several times, wasting the best opportunity already close to the interval, in a shot by Ryan Gauld to the figure, before Tiago Tomás hit the post.

In the second half, the "lions" prevailed in the territorial domain but created few moves of danger. Rafael Defendi was always well until the controversial move, already in the final minutes of the match.

The Faro team provisionally occupies the 16th and antepenultimate position, with eight points, receiving Paços de Ferreira in the next round (27 December, 17:30 hours).
