According to a statement from FAF that Angop had access today, it is the matches against Recreativo do Libolo, for round 5, to be played on Saturday, 21, and Sporting de Cabinda, scheduled for 10 October.

In this match, against 1º de Agosto, played at Estádio Sagrada Esperança, fans threw objects on the pitch and on the bench of 1º de Agosto after the referee annulled a counterattack move from Sagrada Esperança, claiming offside and a penalty awarded to the military club.

This forced the refereeing team to stop the match for about five minutes, only to resume after the police controlled the fans' spirits in this match where the Lundas lost by 0-1.

Sagrada Esperança currently occupies the 11th position, with three points, fruit from one victory and three losses.
