FC Porto Secures 19th Taça de Portugal Title with 2-0 Victory over SC Braga

  • by

In a game that saw ten yellow cards and two direct red cards, FC Porto emerged victorious over SC Braga with a 2-0 win to claim their 19th Taça de Portugal title. An own goal from André Horta and a goal from Otávio proved to be the difference in a final that had its fair share of drama.

The Dragons started the game on the front foot and were the only team to create any meaningful chances in the first half. Despite their dominance, they were unable to find the back of the net. Meanwhile, SC Braga struggled to get a foothold in the game and failed to create any real opportunities going forward.

The second half was a more subdued affair until Otávio played a clever pass to Galeno, who crossed the ball into the box. André Horta attempted to clear the ball but ended up scoring an own goal. The game opened up a bit more after Wendell was sent off for FC Porto, but SC Braga failed to capitalize on their numerical advantage.

The game was effectively over when Niakité was shown a straight red card, reducing SC Braga to ten men. Soon after, Otávio scored a well-placed goal to seal the win for FC Porto and secure their third title of the season after the Supertaça and Taça da Liga.
