Porto-Sporting, the portuguese final of Euroleague

The 54th edition of Euroleague will return in Portugal after 3 years. It will be decided tomorrow at 18.00 (19.00 CET) in the Pavilhao Joao Rocha: Porto-Sporting. A great portuguese final between the first two teams of Portugal’s Championship. Live broadcasting in RTP1, Sporting TV and www.cers-rinkhockey.tv
Two semifinals were very tough ahead of a big crowd in the stands. A great show for Rink Hockey. In the first semifinal the title-holder Barcelona has been beaten from Porto after an infinite game between the two queens of international rink hockey. 1-1 in the regular times: 0-0 in the overtimes, two amazing overtimes. In the penalties who scores was Helder Nunes: unique goal of dramatic penalties.
In the second semifinal, ahead of 3200 people (record of the Pavilhao), the Lisbon’s derby was decided in the last 2 minutes, thanks to the goal of the argentine Gonzalo Romero. Sporting has led for 40 minutes with a tremendous 4-1, but in less than six minutes Benfica tied the match, with outstanding intensity. But in the last part of the semifinal, Romero scores the final goal in a counterattack.
