Vitoria Guimaraes have stunned Vitoria Setubal in securing a 3-2 win despite being down to ten men in the Liga Sagres on Monday.

Algerian striker El Arbi Soudani gave Guimaraes the lead after 29 minutes before Issam El Adoua doubled the lead in the 73rd minute as the visitors looked to be cruising to victory at Estadio do Bonfim.

Guimaraes goalkeeper Douglas Jesus was sent off on 78 minutes and Setubal took full advantage, with substitute Ariza Makukula pulled one back in the 84th minute, before Pedro Santos equalised three minutes later.

But Guimaraes were not to be denied, as Amido Balde won the game for his side with a last-gasp 94th-minute winner.

The victory allowed Guimaraes to move up to sixth position in the standings, with Setubal remaining in 11th spot.
