Filipe Soares was the best player on the pitch in Moreirense's humbling of Gil Vicente, scoring two goals, albeit in relatively simple fashion.

It was him that opened the scoring after collecting possession just to the right of goal around 12 yards out, before taking the touch which allowed him to pass a precise finish into the bottom left corner.

From then on the visitors controlled things, and it would be Soares' second goal, their fourth of the game, which would ultimately take things beyond Gil Vicente. Opposition goalkeeper Denis was actually unlucky to concede after initially making a good save, but his parry to the left was easily met by the 20-year-old, who passed into the empty net.

He would then turn provider for the fifth and final goal with a neat through-ball with the outside of his boot for Pedro Nuno, who would finish off the attack with an outrageous chip.
