Mehdi Taremi scored twice to help newly-crowned Primeira Liga champions Porto beat Tondela 3-1 in the Portuguese Cup final on Sunday and achieve the Double for the ninth time in their history.After winning the league with a record-breaking 91 points, manager Sergio Conceicao’s dream season ended with Porto's 18th Cup title, taking them past Sporting in the winners' list though they still trail rivals Benfica, who have won 26.

Today we knew that the pressure was going to be on us against an opponent that we respected a lot and that's why we started very strong.

After winning the league with a record-breaking 91 points, manager Sergio Conceicao’s dream season ended with Porto's 18th Cup title, taking them past Sporting in the winners' list though they still trail rivals Benfica, who have won 26. Conceicao became the first manager in the club's history to achieve the Double twice, after doing it in 2019-20. But Rangers bounced back from that bitter loss in Seville by ending their long wait to lift the Scottish Cup. "This team deserved the icing on the cake," Porto captain Pepe told reporters. "We have won two trophies, reached the round of 16 of the Champions League, and we are here to play for the Scudetto on the last day," he told a news conference on Saturday. "Our fans were fantastic today and all season in what was a very difficult year for us. After surrendering the Scottish Premiership title to Glasgow rivals Celtic and coming up just short in Europe, their spirited victory provided an uplifting end to a rollercoaster season for Rangers. Today we knew that the pressure was going to be on us against an opponent that we respected a lot and that's why we started very strong. He capitulated 6-3 6-2 6-4 in just over two hours.

"We controlled the game well during the 90 minutes and I think we are all to be congratulated. Playing 120 gruelling minutes in the heat of Seville could have left Rangers shattered, but they dug deep to see off Hearts. It would be extraordinary to win the Scudetto as well, but we have given everything and we know we have given satisfaction to our fans." Roared on by their fans who packed the Jamor stadium on a beautiful afternoon on the outskirts of Lisbon, Taremi opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 22nd minute, after the video assistant referee had flagged a handball by a Tondela defender. Vitinha extended Porto's lead in the 52nd minute with a powerful, low shot from inside the box which went past the goalkeeper and into the bottom right corner. Jack broke the deadlock four minutes into extra-time with a brilliant long-range strike that gave Gordon no chance as it flashed in off the crossbar. Tondela, who had already been relegated from the league and were playing their first-ever final, scored their goal 21 minutes later with a Neto Borges header, but Taremi sealed Porto's victory moments later with a first-touch strike into the bottom right corner. We know that our destiny does not depend only on us, but includes Sampdoria. Source: Reuters . In an emotional finish, Rangers' 40-year-old goalkeeper Allan McGregor took over from Jon McLaughlin in the final seconds in what is expected to be the long-serving star's last appearance for the club.
