Last news Famalicão
The Portuguese Primeira Liga became the second top European football league to return on Wednesday following the coronavirus lockdown as leaders Porto fell to a surprising 2-1 loss at Famalicao.
Famalicao could have a fourth player infected by COVID-19. If that is the case, the Portuguese side would now have 2 members of staff and up to 4 players infected by COVID-19, bringing the number of infections to 6.
After knowing of the 3 positives at Vitória de Guimaraes, Sunday continued to bring bad news in that regard. Benfica player David Tavares is also infected with the coronavirus, and Famalicao reported five cases, three of them involving players whose identity they wanted to preserve.
It is nearly halfway through the season and many of the top European leagues have surprise leaders at the top of the table. Even those that do not have seen many surprise results. Backing the outsiders seems to be a good way of making money this term.
Four years on from languishing in Portugal's third tier, Famalicao sit atop the Primeira Liga and face Porto on Sunday in a match shaping up as Â a clash of the brash young guns against the old order.
