Purpose
This study intends to analyse game situations from the recovery of the ball to goal achievement in the Portuguese first league professional male and female soccer players.

Methods
The goals (total 58) of women’s (29) and men’s (29) first league Portuguese professional soccer teams were observed. The coding of the actions was performed with the Lince computer program, on the basis of a goal observation system in soccer. Descriptive analysis and comparisons were carried out with the chi-square test by Monte Carlo simulation.

Results
The women’s team recovered the ball preferably by interception, in the middle central offensive zone, with the last pass stepwise more frequent in the central zone and offensive right, through the fast attack and finalization with the right foot. The men’s team recorded more occurrences of ball recovery through disarming, in the middle central defensive and offensive zone, and the goals were obtained as a result of the last pass in the right offensive zone and without pass for finalization because of fast attacks, and predominantly with the right foot. Statistically significant differences were observed between the male and female teams in the technical-tactical action of interception for ball recovery.

Conclusions
The soccer game dynamics and goal achievement by the male and female first league professional Portuguese teams present differences that should be assumed in training and competition preparation.
