The Primera Liga, which has 18 participants, has 34 days scheduled and takes champion and vice to the next edition of the Champions League. Vacancies, however, have different quality. The first leads straight into the group stage. The second requires the play-offs to get there. The same happens with regard to the third and fourth place, which go to the Europa League. The last three teams are relegated to the Second Division.
In the game of the twenty-eighth round of the First League in football, Futebol Clube do Porto receives Boavista, in Porto’s famous derby. The match opens the round and it will be on Friday, March 5, 2019, at 8:30 p.m., with the greatest domination of the men of the house fighting for the revalidation of the national championship title. The dragons are in second place with 66 points, the same as Benfica leading thanks to the advantage in the direct confrontation to have won the two duels against the blue and white. Boavista are in thirteenth place with 29 points, just 4 above the waterline and needing to continue to score points consistently so as not to be in difficulties in the final stretch of the competition. There is expected a large influx of people at Estádio do Dragão, with the possibility that Porto will once again take command of the Primera Liga, putting pressure on Benfica.
Porto will enter the field with the mission accomplished in the Portuguese Cup. On Tuesday, April 2, he secured his place in the final of the 2018/2019 tournament by drawing 1-1 with Braga at his rivals home. He had opened wide advantage in the first leg with a 3-0 win at Dragão Stadium. They will have Sporting, who eliminated Benfica, in the fight for the trophy.At that time, in the First League, Benfica is the opponent to be beaten. With 66 points (21 wins, three draws and three losses), Porto is on an equal footing with the Lisbon team in this regard. However, it ends up falling behind in the standings because of the disadvantage of goal difference: 50 to 39.The margin is large enough to be reversed taking two factors into account. The first is that there are only seven days to go. The second is the inferior offensive power of Porto in relation to the rival. While the rival scored 73 goals in 27 games, the team led by conservative coach Sérgio Conceição rocked the network of rivals in 56 opportunities in the same number of games.Thus, the most likely path to the title is to try to accumulate all possible points and rely on the opponent’s stumbling. In this way, the opportunity presented by the schedule of the twenty-eighth round of play before is a chance to take the lead and put pressure on Benfica, who will only face Feirense at the opponent’s stadium on Sunday, April 7.As principal, Porto is the third best of the Primera Liga. Of the 39 points he played at the Estádio do Dragão, he won 33 (11 wins and two draws), scoring 32 goals and conceding eight. In the same number of games for the tournament in the Luz stadium, Benfica scored 32 points.
Boavista interrupted on the previous day the sequence of defeats that reached three clashes by scoring 2-0 at home in the Belenenses. He reached 29 points (eight wins, five draws and 14 losses) gaining some relief in the battle against relegation.The team occupies the thirteenth position in the leaderboard. It has four points of advantage in comparison with Tondela, sixteenth place and first team in the sticking region.Visitor performance numbers, however, are capable of generating major concerns in their fans.
