Belenenses SAD didn’t avoid relegation, which was the most likely scenario, as it depended on third parties. The blues did not go beyond a draw in Arouca in a match in which they can thank Luis Felipe and Danny for not being defeated, saviors in the best chances of the match, all belonging to Arouca.
Franklim Carvalho’s team was still uncomfortable for the opponent but in short phases of play. In the first part he had 10 sharp minutes, after one more signal at the entrance of Arouca, returning respond to the opponent with a short domination in the second half. In the rest of the match, the home side dominated, imposing the pace they wanted, but looking too slow and predictable.
The game started in the final minutes and Arouca had enough chances to say goodbye to the 2021/22 League with a victory, but they never had the discernment or the freshness to deliver the fatal blow to Belenenses SAD , who found themselves as a team defeated by fate, already without confidence to fight back.
