Pique Blinders (Eng)




AC Motxo International (Spa)


The first final of the day in the 2018 Algarve Open would see Pique Blinders versus AC Motxo International. With nine games of football already under their belt the two teams would need to summon one last burst of energy to ensure they would be picking up winners medals in the presentation.

For both teams it was a first @eurofootball5 final at only the first attempt. Let's have a look at the two teams records;

Pique Blinders

Won 3, drawn 3, lost 3. 11 goals for, 6 against.

AC Motxo International

Won 2, drawn 4, lost 3. 5 goals for, 5 against.

It is worth mentioning that AC Motxo International were on a run where they had not conceded a goal for 3 games and had kept 5 clean sheets out of 9 games. AC Motxo had played Pique Blinder's sister squad (Men Behaving Chadli) in the group phase. They won the game 2-0 and a repeat would do the Spanish team just fine.


At kick-off this looked like it could be a very even game and so it proved. It always looked like it would be a low scoring game and so it proved. In the end, just one goal would win it who would claim the historic goal? Step forward Luis Ricardo Denche Pulido. He scored his second and most important goal of the day. His strike meant that his team would have a trophy and winners medals to take home on the plane to Madrid.

We'd like to offer our commiserations to Pique Blinders for just missing out on glory as the Plate Final proved to be a game too far albeit by the slimmest of margins.

For today though, the plaudits all go to one team in the Plate competition. It was a good day's work for AC Motxo International and a much deserved win - the 2018 Algarve Open Plate Winners, Many congratulations on your victory.
