The Portuguese Primeira Liga returns for the 2021/22 campaign this week with Sporting CP going in as defending champions for the first time in nearly 20 years.
Last season saw them clinch a first league title since 2002, ending Porto and Benfica’s 19-year duopoly, and now they’re looking to retain the trophy for the first time since 1954 – when they won four in a row.
In the end, they finished five points clear of second-placed Porto and only missed out on an unbeaten season owing to a 4-3 defeat against Benfica in their penultimate match.
They will be joined in the top flight this season by three new clubs, with Estoril and Vizela clinching automatic promotion from Liga Portugal 2 last term. Arouca, who beat Rio Ave in the Primeira Liga’s inaugural relegation play-off, return to the top table for the first time since 2017 after clinching successive promotions.
