I Liga: FC Porto forced to win to avoid early celebrations by Benfica

Today, FC Porto is forced to win against Casa Pia, on the 32nd round of the 1st Football League, if they still want to maintain their hopes of retaining the title, after Benfica thrashed Portimonense.

The ‘incarnates’, who lead the competition with 83 points, seven more than the still national champions, thrashed Portimão on Saturday, by 5-1, and were thus one victory away from celebrating their 38th championship, the which could happen today, if the ‘dragons’ lose in the reception to Casa Pia, quietly installed in the 10th position.

In addition to the game at Dragão, emphasis should be placed on the reception of Sporting de Braga to Santa Clara, a game in which the ‘arsenalistas’, third placed, need to win to return to the four-point advantage over Sporting, fourth, teams that are still fighting for the final spot in the Champions League.

In the other game of the day, Vitória de Guimarães can reinforce their sixth place, which allows access to the Europa Conference League, if they win in Vila do Conde, being able to overcome Arouca, who only plays on Mondays.
