Adriano helped FC Porto to complete a double by beating Setubal 1-0 in the Portuguese Cup final. Adriano scored with a header in the 39th minute to give Porto the double for the fifth time in the club's history. The Portuguese champions had the offensive edge in the match but found it difficult to break down Setubal's well-organized defensive wall. In the stands, Porto fans launched three firecrackers which hurt one person. Police were later forced to make an arrest and intervene to control fans who broke chairs and threw them at each other. Porto had last won the double in 2002-03 under Jose Mourinho. Setubal, which won the cup last year, will be in next season's UEFA Cup because Porto will play in the Champions League. (AP)
