Marcus Abraham leads Porto to victory against Oliveirense



By Saheed Afolabi
Nigerian, Marcus Abraham was on target to lead Porto B to victory against Oliveirense.
Porto B took Oliveirense to the cleaners with an emphatic 3-1 win in the Portuguese Liga B 2.
Coming off from netting a brace in his previous game, Abraham got the manager’s nod to start in attack against a familiar foe.
The first half was a cagey affair as both sides searched for a goal as they settled for a barren outcome in the first 45 minutes of play.
The second half showed Porto B becoming the brighter side as they pressed for goal.
Wendel gave Porto B the lead in the 56 minutes and their possession counted in the hour mark as Abraham popped up to double the visitors lead which marked his third goal in two games.
Wendel stunned the host with a great finish in the 68th minute to setup a 3-0 lead in the encounter.
Oliveirense pulled a goal back from the spot in the 86 minute but it wasn’t enough to secure a point against their rival.
Porto B have raked in 21 points from 12 games and will lock horns with third placed, AVS on Saturday, December 9.
