S.C. Farense – Olympiacos F.C. 0-3

Olympiacos defeated S.C. Farense, on his first friendly match in Portugal.

Olympiacos continued his pre-season friendly matches with another win, this time against S.C Farense (3-0).

The “red and whites” started the match with a 4-3-3 formation, which was adjusted to a 4-5-1 when our team was defending. Carroll was under the goalposts. Cholevas was the left defender, Karagounis the right one and Papazoglou with Siovas the two stoppers.

Modesto was the defensive midfielder. In front of him played Tatos and Chumbinho. At the flanks, Vlachodimos was on the left, Fetfatzidis was on the right, while Pantelic played as the center forward.

Olympiacos faced no threats during the first half. Our team controlled the game and created several chances for goal. Fetfatzidis attempted a shot on 10’, but missed. On the 16th minute the young Greek attacking midfielder created a chance for Pantelic, after finding him with a nice through ball. The Serbian couldn’t score from a good spot, sending the ball on Serrao.

Our team’s superiority “paid off” on the 38th minute, when Fetfatzidis entered the opponent’s box, dribbled Simoes and was tripped by the Portuguese defender. Pantelic took the penalty and scored, while nothing changed till half-time.

In the second half, Leonardo Jardim used a different squad. Megyeri was the goalkeeper, while on the defensive line (from right to left) played Torossidis, Manolas, Dielna and Potouridis. Maniatis and Fejsa were the two midfielders, Diogo had a “free role” in front of them, while Lykogiannis played on the right side and Abdoun on the left. Mitroglou was the center forward.

On the 46th minute Maniatis served the ball from the right to Lykogiannis who shot “on the move” but couldn’t beat Freitas. Djamel Abdoun showed his talent on the 80th minute. He received a ball, after the pas from Mitroglou, in the box. He dribbled Soousa beautifully and was brought down with a foul. He took the penalty kick himself with a chipped shot (like Pirlo did during the Euro 2012) and beat Freitas.

A few minutes later, on 89’ the S.C. Farense goalkeeper made a mistake and gave the ball to Abdoun, who took a simple shot and sent it at the back of the net, marking our team’s third goal.

S.C. FARENSE: Serrao, Barao, Luis Afonso, Fajardo, Bernardo, Lojia, P. Marques, F. Marques, Simoes, Portella, Diop. In the second half Freitas, Soousa, Teixeira, Nico, B. Martins, F. Majardo, Correia, Andrande, Hernandes, Ibrahima and Youssouf also played.

OLYMPIACOS F.C.: Carroll (46’ Megyeri), Karagounis (46’ Torossidis), Cholevas (46’ Potouridis), Papazoglou (46’ Manolas), Siovas (46’ Dielna), Modesto (46’ Maniatis), Tatos (46’ Fejsa), Chumbinho (46’ Diogo), Vlachodimos (46’ Lykogiannis), Fetfatzidis (46’ Abdoun), Pantelic (46’ Mitroglou).
