After the match in Vizela, Famalicão winning almost to the end, conceding the equalizer at 90’+1, coach Rui Pedro Silva regretted the expulsion of Pedro Brazão, considering it decisive in the result.
“In the first half there was a team dominating the game, which we were, we created chances and we created them. In the second half, we could have scored the second goal, we didn’t and we made another mistake that we can’t do. We were down to ten men and conceded the equaliser. Still, I think firing a player for slowing play in a corner is overkill. For example, if a goalkeeper delays the game, he does not see yellow twice. The team was frustrated because they were producing enough football to win, but after we were reduced to ten and saw the volume of the opposition, the tie ended up adjusting,” said the coach.
