After their defeat in Braga on Monday, Porto saw a massive streak of 58 unbeaten league matches come to an end. The Dragons led by Sergio Conceicao could have been heroes if he had succeeded.
October 30, 2020. It has been a year and a half since Porto marched to Portugal, with Porto not losing a football match in the league. It was at home against Paços de Ferreira, 3-2. But like any good streak at the end, the Dragons, long invincible at 58 games (47 wins, 11 draws) were held up on Monday night.
Porto will have to wait a little longer
He surprised 1-0 on Braga grass, the fourth in the Portuguese championship, and Porto lost the Portuguese club from Sergio Conceicao in today’s match 31 with a goal scored by Ricardo Horta in the second half (54). The record unbeaten in the history of the Portuguese championship was defeated on April 11 in Vitoria (57 games in a row unbeaten).
Thanks to their ingenuity, Braga players deprive the dragons of the possibility of actually being heroes, three days after the end. Pepe’s partners, who are nine points ahead of Sporting Portugal before the match, could have validated their coronation in case of success and an unfavorable result from the opponent. But they did not win. Sporting also won Boavista (3-0). So we have to wait a bit.
