Braga beat Porto to lift Portuguese Cup

The Portuguese league couldn’t have ended with more excitement as Braga beat FC Porto in a dramatic final to win the Portuguese Cup for the second time in their history, 50 years to the day after their first success.

Defensive mistakes have haunted Porto all season, and the Dragons rearguard was again all at sea, gifting two goals to Braga. But Porto soon came back with André Silva’s brace, the second in stoppage time, cancelling out Rui Fonte and Josué’s goals to make it 2-2 and send the game into extra time.

If that wasn’t exciting enough the game went on to penalties and on the day Braga were way more clinical than the Dragons. Braga winning 4-2 on penalties.
