Aly Ghazal, 100th appearance

Egyptian midfielder Aly Ghazal played just over an hour in his 100th appearance with CD Nacional in a game that ended in a 1-1 away draw with Vitória Setúbal in the 23rd week of the Primeira Liga.

Both teams attempted to threaten each other’s goals early on until Tiquinho Soares gave the visitors the upper hand just 15 minutes into the game. The remainder of the first half was uneventful with the hosts trying to level the score.

In the second half, the hosts pushed more to find an equalizer as Ghazal and his men lost momentum. Setúbal were able to find the net in the 59th minute through André Claro. Four minutes later, Ghazal night came to an end when he was subbed off for Luis Aurelio.

In the 94th minute, Setúbal’s Joaozinho received a red card for a second booking, but it was too late for either team to score.

With this draw, Nacional fail to win in the month of February with another draw and one loss. Nacional currently sit in 15th place with 21 points.

Next up, will host F.C. Paços de Ferreira on February 26.
