Fredy Montero scores 9th goal of season

Fredy Montero continued his hot run of form, scoring his ninth goal of the season in Sporting CP's 4-2 win over Rio Ave. Montero's 59th minute goal gave Spoting CP a 2-1 lead. It was also Montero's fourth goal in his past 10 appearances across all competitions and all nine of his goals have come in the past 18.

The win puts Sporting CP into third place of the Portuguese Primeira Liga, which would be high enough for them to qualify for Champions League qualifying rounds. Sporting CP have won four straight league games and have not lost since Nov. 1, 2014, a stretch of nine across all competitions.
