January 8, 1989. Still in the 2nd Division B, Central Zone, the Academic Henrique Calisto went to Campo Conde de Anadia to beat, 0-2, Mangualde on matchday 16 of the competition that was, in the 1988/1989 season. Eldon, 60 ', and Jones, 78', scored the goals of what is the last away win of the Briosa, in games counting for the championship, in the first commitment of a calendar year.
From 1989 until now, only once Briosa began the year to win as a visitor and went to the Portuguese Cup. In the 2013/2014 season, on January 5, 2014, the students, under the baton of Sérgio Conceição, went to the Municipal de Aveiro to defeat Beira-Mar, 0 -1, in the eighth finals of the “queen race”. Magique scored the only goal of the match.
Since that triumph to open 1989, Briosa has not added three points at the beginning of the year, playing away from home. Looking back over the last decade, and taking the game of the Portuguese Cup 2013/2014 out, three out-of-doors games started a calendar year and zero wins.
The last time academy training started a calendar year playing out of doors happened in the 2016/2017 season. Costinha's formation was played on January 8, 2017, at FCP Porto B's home. Students lost, 2-1, on matchday 21. Galeno and Fede Varela advanced the young dragons, with Traquina, 81 ', signing Briosa's goal.
Before this debacle, between 2010 and 2019, only twice the Academic started the year playing away home and added two draws. On January 2, 2015, on the 15th round of the 1. Liga, Paulo Sérgio's team went to Estádio do Restelo to draw 0-0 with CF “Os Belenenses”. About three years earlier, in the 2011/2012 season, on January 6, 2012, Pedro Emanuel's team had a 1-1 draw at V. Setúbal's 14th round of the 1. Liga.
João Carlos Pereira's team plays this Sunday (15H00) at FC Porto B's home and will want to counter the away record of recent seasons.
note: By mistake, in the paper edition was written in the news "the equivalent of the 3rd level of national football". The information is incorrect. The 2nd Division Center Zone was the equivalent of the current 2nd League. At the time the 2nd League was divided into three zones (North, Center and South), with the winners of each guaranteeing the rise of the 1st League at the end of the season. Briosa, who started the season led by António Oliveira and ended with Henrique Calisto, finished the championship in 2nd place (52 points), behind Feirense (52). First League 1989/1990 were Tirsense (North), Feirense (Center) and União da Madeira (South).
It should be noted that in the Centro Zone, at that time, also competed from AF Coimbra CF Os Marialvas (4th place with 42 points) and Lousanense (12th place with 31 points). The current Academic / OAF has never competed in the third tier of Portuguese football. The Academic Football Section was a season, season 2016/2017, in the 3rd tier, the Championship of Portugal.
