Primeira Liga Portugal: Tournament Overview

The Portuguese football championship is entering a decisive phase, and the intrigue in the fight for the championship title remains. Three clubs – Benfica, Porto and Sporting – are fighting hard for the title of the strongest team in the country, while the rest of the championship participants are striving to improve their tournament position and solve problems for the season.

Lisbon’s Sporting is leading the title race. The team, led by local coach Amorim, demonstrates bright, attacking football and is currently retaining first position. The Eagles’ success is largely due to the brilliant form of striker Gyokeres, who leads the scoring race with 19 goals, and midfielder Pedro Goncalves, who is the team’s main creative force.

Benfica’s main rival in the fight for the championship is Porto. The reigning national champions, led by charismatic coach Sergio Conceição, remain a formidable force in Portuguese football. The “Dragons” are 8 points behind the leader, but they do not intend to give up without a fight. The leader of Porto’s attacks, Iranian forward Mehdi Taremi, who has scored 16 goals, is ready to lead the team to defend the title. An important role in the club’s success is played by the most experienced defender Pepe, who is a real leader of the defense.

The main sensation of the current season in Portugal is Braga. A modest team from the city of the same name, led by a young and ambitious coach Arthur Jorge, is in forth place in the championship, ahead of such an eminent club as Boavista. The Gunsmiths show spectacular, combinational football, and their leaders Ricardo Horta and Vitinha are among the brightest players in the league. If Braga can maintain their position until the end of the season, it will be a great achievement for the club.

Mid table and outsider teams

Besides the fight for the championship, there are other interesting storylines in the Primeira Liga. Thus, the real discoveries of the season were “Casa Pia” and “Chaves” – two teams that recently returned to the elite division. Casa Pia, which has not played in the top flight for 83 years, is currently in fifth place and is aiming to qualify for European competition. Chaves, in turn, is in sixth position and is also fighting for high places.

While some clubs are fighting for top places, others are fighting desperately for survival. At the bottom of the standings the density is very high, and several teams are at risk of leaving the elite division at the end of the season. The main outsiders of the championship at the moment are Santa Clara and Pacos de Ferreira , but other clubs located in the bottom half of the table cannot feel safe. Every point in the remaining matches will be worth its weight in gold, and the fight to maintain a residence permit in the Primeira League promises to be no less intense than the battle for the championship title.
