The league starts at August 11 and the opening matchday is the following one: Boavista - Aves Portimonense - Belenenses Rio Ave - Guimarães Benfica - Paços de Ferreira Santa Clara - Famalicão Braga - Moreirense Marítimo - Sporting Setúbal - Tondela Gil Vicente - Porto Challenging league start for Sporting, starting at Marítimo's home, who is always a tough team to beat, then receiving Braga at matchday 2.

Not the largest budget of Segunda Liga, but their fighting spirit made sure they keep gathering points. Assembled a mix of young talent and experienced players team, let's see how many of them will stay at Famalicão at season starts. Paços de Ferreira: Very organized structure. Despite loosing their best player at December to Sporting, they manage to keep their performances up there. Gil Vicente: A master class in how to make wrong decisions, Gil Vicente returns to Primeira Liga by court decision after being wrongly demoted a few seasons ago! We can't really predict their performances because they are building a team from scratch!
