A hard-fought 2-2 draw after extra-time resulted in the Lions winning 5-4 on penalties. Controversy flared up four minutes before the break after the Lions’ backline believed Héctor Herrera had controlled a cross into the box with his arm. Moments later a second successive cross was played in for Tiquinho Soares to head home the game’s first goal.
Sporting drew level thanks to a Bruno Fernandes’ equaliser just before half-time. No goals in the second period took the final into extra-time where Sporting eventually took the lead via Bas Dost after eleven minutes of the additional time. As the final seconds ticked away Felipe, with seconds to spare, grabbed an equaliser for Porto.
Substitutes Hernâni and Adrián Lopez combined with a cross and header across goal to enable Felipe to take the tie to penalties. Sporting were pegged back early in the shoot-out via Bas Dost’s penalty against the bar, later reciprocated by Pepe’s strike onto the woodwork for Conceição’s outfit. Renan’s save versus Fernando Andrade set up the victory for Sporting in sudden death, where Luiz Phellype’s spot-kick claimed the Lions’ second piece of silverware this season.
