Portugal round-up: Guimarães eyeing Europe

Vitória Guimarães consolidated sixth position with a 1-0 win over CD Santa Clara on Friday night.

Vitória Guimarães consolidated sixth position in the 1. Liga table with a 1-0 win over CD Santa Clara on Friday night at the D. Afonso Henriques stadium.

Fangueiro winner
The first half was a tight affair but the home side secured the three points when Carlos Manuel Fangueiro struck in the 63rd minute, eight minutes after Vítor Vieira of Santa Clara was sent off after being shown his second yellow card of the match.

Gap closed
The three points enables Guimarães to move within two points of fifth-placed UD Leiria and within four points of SL Benfica, who are third. Both of those teams, however, will have an opportunity to move further ahead of Guimarães when they play at the weekend.
