Five teams are alive to decide the final round of the tournament

Five teams are alive to decide the final round of the tournament

SC Braga and FC Porto, in Minho, are fighting over the bottom spot on the podium, with the Dragons risking their worst ranking in the last 48 years. Boavista, Estrella da Amadora and Portimonense are trying to escape the maintenance match in the Primera Division.

Of the 18 teams participating in the Premier League, five teams still have something to gain (or lose) in the final round of the tournament.

In the 306th match in the tournament, FC Porto will try to avoid the worst classification in the last 48 years. To maintain the current third place, the Dragons cannot afford to lose in Braga. Otherwise, Minho's team will repeat last season's ranking. If a year ago it was at Sporting's expense, this time it may be at Porto's expense, in a match that could mark the end of a seven-year era for Sergio Conceicao.

At the bottom of the table, it has been decided that Chávez and Visela will be relegated, but it remains to be determined who will be second to last in the table and who will discuss with the third-placed team in League 2 a place in the Primera Division 2024/25 edition.

Boavista 31 points
Est. Amadora, 30
Portimonense, 29

At the moment, the tenant of the center that no one wants is Portimonense, which needs to beat its neighbor from Faro, far away from home, and hopes that Boavista does not win or that Estrella does not win. The Axadrezados receive, respectively, Vizela and Gil Vicente, Minho's clubs that have already decided their lives. By winning, they know they are guaranteed maintenance. Even if they don't win, their lives will be easier if Portimonense doesn't win at Sao Luis.

It should be noted that the opponent of the worst-placed team in this trio will always be one of the two teams: AVS or Marítimo. These two teams are fighting on Sunday morning (11:00 AM) for third place in League Two. Minho's side enters the final match with one more point than the Islanders, and in theory, they have a more accessible game than the Madeiran side – AVS hosts Tondela while Marítimo travels to Viseu.

Returning to the Primera Division, it is important to say that, with the exception of the duel between SC Braga and FC Porto, all places up to eighth place have been decided. But between the ninth and twelfth there are only two breaking points in a discussion that includes, in this order, Farense, Rio Ave, Gil Vicente and Casa Pia.

Villa-Condenses kicks off Matchday 34 when they host Benfica on Friday (8:45pm). Whatever happened, Rio Ave has already had the best second round in history, with just one defeat, stopping all the top seven teams in the second half of the tournament (Sporting, FC Porto, SC Braga, SC Vitoria, Moreirense and Arauca). ). We still need to face a team at this top level, which is Benfica.

It remains to say that there will be a big party at Alvalade on Saturday (6pm kick-off) as champions Sporting, against Chavez, try to achieve a number of home wins, perhaps aiming to reach 100 goals in the competition – seven remaining. .
