But if the relegation of Gil Vicente is confirmed, Portugal will start the European group stage with only four teams able to score: Porto, Sporting CP, Benfica and Sp. Braga. And these points will always be divided by the total number of teams that have qualified for the competition. That is six.

The Netherlands, which have qualified with only five teams, remain with all of them in the competition for now. And only Twente, which lost this Thursday in Florence to Fiorentina (2-1) is in danger of being removed.

The Netherlands started the season before Portugal, so if the league does not catch up with the Eredivisie at the end of the season, it will fall to seventh place and at the same time lose a place in the Champions League and a team in European competition. There will be five instead of the current six.

René Simões worked at Botafogo as one of his last jobs, especially in 2017. The Brazilian coach, who was Coritiba’s football coordinator until last August, expressed regret that the directors were more understanding of the Portuguese coaches and cited Luis Castro’s case. “I see that the Portuguese coaches are very strict in some things that they do not refuse. The fact that they don’t “rock the waist” makes this adaptation a bit more difficult. [Luís Castro] If there was a Brazilian coach and the direction would be Brazilian, the coach would not be here for a long time,” René Simões assured in a statement to the Samba que é goal program, quoted by Lance. The 65-year-old Coach even showed ignorance towards Luis Castro, who was the champion of Ukraine with Shakhtar Donetsk.

In addition, they attracted many players at the same time. It’s all very complicated, but Brazilian human culture has to adapt to it. It is necessary to adapt to the culture of the country,” he stressed.
