UD Leiria received and beat SC Braga B, 2-0, in a match of the 4th round of Serie 2 of Ligue 3, played this Saturday afternoon, at the Estádio Dr. Magalhães Pessoa, in Leiria.
After a more balanced first half and where there were some offensive disillusions on both sides, the Unionists won in the second half, taking advantage of the fact that they scored very early: in the 52nd minute, and following a cross from the left by Kikas, Habib Sylla, at the far post, fired for the first of the afternoon in the town of Lis.
The second goal for the team managed by Bino Maçães came in the 71st minute, and was signed by the best player on the pitch: Kikas. The number 91 of Leirienses, after receiving a sweet pass from Gonçalo Gregório, entered the box and, at the exit of Lukas Hornicek, shot with class, with the outside part of his right foot, for the final 2-0 .
It should be added that this game had the power to break the record for assists in Liga 3. This label was already in the possession of UD Leiria – in the previous round, when receiving in Vitória de Setúbal, 5683 spectators were in the Leiriense pregnant – and that was this afternoon, with 7,628 fans at the Estádio Dr. Magellan Pessoa.
With this victory, UD Leiria climbs, on condition, to first place in Series 2 of this phase of ascent, now with 7 points, while waiting for UD Oliveirense to do so, also this Saturday afternoon, in the stronghold of Vitória de Setúbal (5 p.m.).
In the next round, UD Leiria will play at home again, this time against UD Oliveirense (Monday 25, 8 p.m.), while SC Braga will also play as hosts, hosting Vitória de Setúbal (Saturday 23, at 7:30 p.m.). ).
