On Saturday, Petro de Luanda, coached by Portuguese Alexandre Santos, drew 0-0 against Wiliete de Benguela, in a match for the eighth round, losing the opportunity to 'take off' in the leadership of the Angolan football championship.

The clash between Cuando Cubango FC and Desportivo da Huíla was postponed to Monday, as a result of heavy rain this Sunday afternoon, in Bié province.

The match between Académica do Lobito and Sporting de Cabinda was also postponed due to the absence of the 'lions' in Benguela province.

Last Friday, the Angolan Football Federation punished Recreativo do Libolo with a defeat for lack of appearance, in the game against Sporting de Cabinda, in the sixth round of Girabola.

The Angolan club was also punished with the payment of arbitration and organization expenses, as well as its damages.

The game did not happen because Libolo was unable to travel to Cabinda province.

In a statement, the Disciplinary Board of the Angolan Football Federation referred that the team under the orders of Paulo Torres, 48 ​​hours after the incident, did not justify its absence.

With the three points awarded at the secretariat, Sporting de Cabinda rose to seventh in the Angolan football championship, with nine points, while Recreativo do Libolo dropped to the 10th position.
