Primeira Liga: Estoril 2 Braga 1

By Football News



Estoril made it eight Primeira Liga games unbeaten with a 2-1 win over Braga on Monday.

The hosts climbed to fourth in the table courtesy of first-half strikes from Carlitos and Evandro, with Raul Rusescu grabbing Braga's goal late on.

Jesualdo Ferreira's men, meanwhile, suffered just their second loss in seven top-flight games as the home side gained a measure of revenge for the 3-2 defeat they suffered in September's reverse fixture.

Carlitos set Estoril on their way after 24 minutes, producing a calm finish after collecting Javier Balboa's pass.

Evandro netted his ninth league goal of the season on the stroke of half-time to put them in the driving seat.

And that ensured that Rusescu's injury-time strike was nothing more than a consolation.
