Estádio do Algarve with a nice attendance, with about 10 thousand people.

Lisandro, Aurélio Buta, Eliseu, Samaris, M. Chrien, João Carvalho, Diogo Gonçalves, Carrillo and Mitroglou have played too.
At 14’, a moment of inspiration by Seferovic. Fejsa gets the ball, passes to Jonas, who assists the Swiss international for a perfect conclusion, a tremendous lob. It was the first one!
Minute 32, Bétis equalizes by Sérgio Leon, after a Joaquín's assistance.
On the second half, as usual, some substitutions made by Rui Vitória. But Seferovic, the man of the match, was on fire and it was a matter of time until the decision. Good combination on the midfield and Rafa performing a long assistance for the winning goal, at 49'.
