After two decades of waiting: Sporting Lisbon is the champion again

After two decades of waiting: Sporting Lisbon is the champion again

After two decades of waiting, Sporting Lisbon became the champion of Portugal again.

The Lisbon team won the 19th Portuguese title and the first since 2002.

In a match of the 32nd round of the championship, the Lions defeated Boavista 1-0 and so two rounds before the end of the season are unattainable at the top with an eight-point lead over second-placed Porto.

Sporting's hero was Paulinho, who scored the only goal of the match in the 36th minute.

In addition to Sporting, Porto and Benfica will play in the Champions League, and Braga will play in the Europa League, while Passo Ferreira in the Conference League.

In the last two rounds of the Portuguese championship it will become clear who will be the fifth representative of Portugal in Europe, as in the game are Guimaraes, Moreirense, Santa Clara and Belenenses, who are combined in two points difference.

Nacional Madeira will certainly drop out of the championship, while Rio Ave, Boavista and Farenze will fight for survival in the last two rounds.

Sporting Lisbon will try to finish the season undefeated in the next two rounds. So far, the team has achieved 25 wins and 7 draws.
