Koka’s Braga advance to quarter-finals after extra-time win over Sporting
Ahmed Hassan Koka’s Braga advanced to the quarter finals of the Portuguese Cup after defeating Sporting FC 4-3 on Wednesday evening.
Ahmed Hassan Koka started the game for Braga in his usual position as lone striker. However, it was Sporting who got on the board first due to a tenth minute strike by Alberto Aquilani. Braga were able to get the goal back before halftime, courtesy of Wilson Eduardo.
Braga broke the deadlock 10 minutes after halftime, through Brazilian winger Alan. The lead was shortlived, however, as Algerian Islam Slimani brought the scores level only three minutes later.
Koka was substituted off in the 65th minute, after making no real impression on the game. Immediately after his substitution, Sporting FC broke the deadlock again, this time through Portuguese midfielder William Carvalho.
Six minutes before full time, Braga got their well-deserved equalizer, courtesy of Marcelo Goiano. The game ultimately went to extra time, and Rui Fonte gave Braga the lead for the final time in the 111th minute. Braga held on to eliminate Sporting FC and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Portuguese Cup.
