The Sporting Clube de Portugal U19 NextGen side won their third of three games in the NextGen Series leaving them 5 points clear at the top of their group with a goal difference of +9.
The game was held at the home of Belenenses, the Estádio do Restelo and immediately Sporting were on the attack with Bruma hitting the post in the opening moments.
It took only 6 minutes for the youngsters to get their first goal of the night, Carlos Chaby and Iuri Medeiros linking up with Chaby finishing the move. Another 6 minutes gone and once again Sporting hit the back of the net, this time Iuri Medeiros went from provider to scorer.
Sporting stayed on top of game throughout the first half, with goalkeeper Rafael Veloso having little to do throughout the match. Just a minute before the half-time whistle, Sporting got their third goal of the game. Betinho, who scored in each of the previous two games, getting his third of the competition before the break.
Sporting had the better of the second but did not dominate as they did in the first with the side already in cruise control. Molde did get one back through midfielder Magnus Stamnestrø.
Ten minutes in though and once again Betinho was amongst the scorers, securing his 4th of the competition and Sporting’s 4th of the night.
Late on Sporting added two more goals to make the tally even more impressive. First Carlos Mané got a goal before Farley Rosa made it 6 on the night.
