FC Porto, defeated in Braga on Monday, saw their massive 58-match series come to an end without a loss in the league. Sergio Conceicao’s dragons could have been champions if successful.
October 30, 2020. It had been a year and a half since Porto marched on Portugal, as Porto had not lost a football match in the league. It was on their lawn against Pacos de Ferreira, 2 for 3 goals. But in the end, like any good series, the Dragons’ long invincibility of 58 games (47 wins, 11 draws) came to a halt on Monday evening.
Porto will have to wait a little longer
Surprised 1–0 on the lawn of Braga, fourth in the Portuguese Championship, FC Porto lost in the second half (54th) to a goal by Ricardo Horta in Sergio Conceicao’s match on the 31st day. The unbeaten record in Portuguese championship history was defeated on 11 April at Vitoria (57 consecutive games without defeat).
With their skill, the Braga players deny the dragons the possibility of being champions three days before the end. Pepe’s teammate, the leader nine points ahead of Sporting Portugal before the game, could validate his coronation in the event of success and an unfavorable result from the opponent. But they didn’t live. And Sporting also won Boavista (2-0). So we’ll have to wait a bit.
