Sport Porto powerless against the invincible Sporting Portugal
Hopes rise in Portugal but COVID-19 still slams hospitals
LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Hopes are rising in Portugal that the worst of a devastating pandemic surge might be over, as the number of COVID-19 deaths reported Monday was the lowest in three weeks. The country’s pandemic picture is mixed, however, as hospital admissions rose for the first time in a week. Still, the spread of COVID-19 in the small European Union country has by some metrics been slowing since the end of January. “I’m a bit moreThe country’s pandemic picture is mixed, however, as hospital admissions rose for the first time in a week.

Porto 0-0 Sporting
How do you say boredom in Portuguese?
It is well known that a goalkeeper doesn’t like to take a goal. So to pay tribute to Alfredo Quintana, Portuguese handball goalkeeper who died this Friday following a cardiac arrest at the age of 32, FC Porto and Sporting have decided not to score goals in this shock at the top of Liga Nos at the 'Estádio do Dragão (0-0).
Because yes, to score goals, you still have to try strikes. A parameter that the two teams have long struggled to assimilate. Let it be Sporting who have too rarely crossed the halfway line. Or FC Porto who, despite an urge to confiscate the leather, never really managed to endanger Antonio Adán in the first half, except for a Manafa strike that was rejected by the Spanish goalkeeper (22 ').

Fortunately, the second act was (slightly) more appealing. First of all thanks to Pepe and Feddal who exchanged names of birds. Then thanks to Mehdi Taremi who can bite his fingers for missing his shot when he was alone against the empty goal (56 '). A lack of success that pursued the Iranian striker a few minutes later with a shot that flew into the stands (75 ') then a kickback that grazed the post of Antonio Adán (82'). Opposite, Matheus had the goal of the heist at the end of his foot, but he too preferred to send his shot in the stands where the shirts bearing the effigy of Aflredo Quintana (72 ') were placed.
In the end, this draw is good for Sporting, who remain unbeaten this season and keep their 10-point lead over their runners-up FC Porto.
