Late Strike and Solid Defence by Grimi Give Sporting 2-1 Win


Miguel Veloso showed the outcome of the match at the 6th minute, curving the ball directly from the corner into the net, giving the lead to the Portuguese visitors.


Although Ventspils did pick up the pace in the second half with Edgars Gauracs converting a penalty kick at the 65th minute, that wasn’t enough for the Latvians to call it even.  On top of having hard time passing the defence line with an alert Leandro Grimi, Ventspils’ shots on net lacked precision.


Joao Moutinho scored a stunning winner five minutes from time to give Sporting Lisbon a third straight win in Group D of the Europa League.
