Sagrada Esperança suffers first defeat and delays in the fight for Girabola

Sagrada Esperança was delayed this Saturday in the race for the Angolan football title, having lost for the first time in this edition of Girabola, against Desportivo da Luanda Sul, by 1-0, in a game of the 16th round.


A goal by Jaime, in the 50th minute, ensured the triumph of the visitors and prevented Sagrada Esperança, second ranked, with 37 points, from provisionally rising to first place, occupied by Petro de Luanda, who has 38.

The team led by Portuguese Alexandre Santos should have played this Saturday against Cuando Cubango FC, but the match did not take place due to the absence of the visitors, who did not travel to Luanda due to financial difficulties.

In the coming days, the Angolan Football Federation should decide to reschedule the game or assign a 3-0 defeat to Cuando Cubango, due to lack of appearance.

1.º de Agosto beat Académica do Lobito by 1-0, in Benguela, with a goal from Benarfa, in the 39th minute, and remains in third position, with 34 points, three behind Sagrada Esperança and four from Petro.

Recreativo da Caála won 3-0 against Sporting de Benguela by 3-0, with goals from Deco, at two minutes, Malamba, at 52, and Zico, at 66, and ascended to fifth position, with 25 points.

On Sunday, January 23, Bravos do Maquis beat Wiliete de Benguela by 2-0, in the province of Benguela, and rose to sixth position in the championship, with 23 points.

Dabanda, at eight minutes, opened the scoring, which was extended by Furtado, at 90+1.

Progresso do Sambizanga beat Desportivo da Huila 2-1 in Luanda, after a turnaround in the result.

The visitors opened the scoring through Robson, in the 52nd minute. Vanilson, at 80, re-established equality, and Isaac, minutes later, scored the winning goal.

It should be noted that on Friday, January 21, Sporting de Cabinda won 1-0 against Recreativo do Libolo, by Paulo Torres, in a delayed game of the sixth round of the championship, and rose to seventh position, with 20 points.

Depu, from Sagrada Esperança, leads the list of scorers, with 15 goals, followed by Tiago Azulão, from Petro de Luanda, with 11, and Jiresse, from Recreativo do Libolo, with seven.
