Portimonense S.C. is a club that rarely strings seasons in the Primeira Liga together, ever since their 11-year run ended in 1990. Between then and their return in 2017, they moved between the second and the third tier of Portuguese football. Last season, however, they finished in 12th place in the top flight.
Given all of that, they have been given the betting odds of 3001.00 to win the title and earn the crown of the champions, something they’ve never managed to do, which basically means that they aren’t very likely to do it now either.
Portimonense Key Players
The squad at the disposal of manager Antonio Folha has seen a large number of changes this summer, both on a permanent and temporary basis. Nonetheless, it’s to be expected that the key ingredients in the team which will try and stay in the league for the third time running will mostly be the players that were already there.
Centre-backs Jadson and Rodrygo feel like they’ll be important at the back, though Willian who arrived from CD Cova Piedade for free, could usurp one of them. Romulo and Jose Francisco Cevallos Jr. can form a stable partnership in the middle of the park, while Tabata and Ayrton Boa Morte would provide pace on the flanks.
Former Porto striker Jackson Martinez came for Guangzhou Evergrande, but the competition upfront promises to be fierce with Ze Gomes and Iury also capable of causing opposition defences problems.
The club is based in the south of Portugal, in the region of Algarve. It has a rivalry with S.C. Farense and S.C. Olhanense, who are both from the same region. However, neither of these clubs is currently in the top tier, so the rivalry has more of a traditional local flavour than anything else. Farense earned promotion to the Liga Pro in 2018 and remains there, while Olhanense play in the Campeonato de Portugal, the third division in the country.
Portimonense were founded back in 1914, and they were a regular part of the Primeira Liga until 1990. Their best result came in 1985, when they finished in fifth place and competed in the UEFA Cup the following season. However, between 1990 and 2017, they only played in the top flight in 2010/11.
The club hasn’t won any major trophies as of yet, despite being around for over a century now. They have, however, had some good runs in the cups, reaching the semi-finals of the Taca de Portugal (Portuguese Cup) three times – in 1983, 1987 and 1988.
There is one thing that makes Portimonense stand out from most clubs across Europe. They are owned by their supporters, which is less uncommon in Spain and Portugal than elsewhere on the continent. They also have an original song of their own, entitled “Portimonense, expoentealgarivo” (“Portimonense, the Algarve exponent”).
Meanwhile, for all the pride and loyalty of their supporters, it remains a fact that all they will be hoping for this season is to stay in the league.
