William Carvalho scores a stoppage-time penalty to give Primeira Liga leaders Sporting Lisbon a 1-0 win over Belenenses.
Sporting Lisbon have moved five points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga after claiming a 1-0 victory over Belenenses this evening.
Fredy Montero was the first to threaten for the hosts, but his strike brought out a comfortable save from Hugo Ventura.
William Carvalho had Sporting's next attempt on goal with a wayward shot, before Bryan Ruiz forced the keeper to stop his effort as the first half finished goalless.
After the break, Montero had another chance with a volleyed effort that he was unable to direct on target.
For large periods, it seemed as if the match would end in a goalless draw, but in stoppage time Belenenses defender Tonel handled inside the box and gave away a penalty.
Carvalho took the resulting spot kick and made no mistake to find the back of the net to give the league leaders all three points and their ninth win out of 11 in the top flight this season.
