Portugal is getting closer to the Netherlands and France :: zerozero.pt

In the reports of another week of European competitions, the results are positive. Portugal remain in 7th place (and will be there in the next few months, that’s for sure), but have managed to get a little closer to the top two.

A week ago, Portugal was around 3.6 coefficient points behind France and 2.05 behind the Netherlands.

This week, the victories of Sporting, Benfica and SC Braga served to draw closer, in particular the French, who had only PSG to win (Nice and Rennes drew, Nantes, Monaco and Marseille lost) , but also the Dutch, who saw Ajax lose, AZ Alkmaar and Feyenoord win and PSV see their match postponed. Now the distance becomes about 3.3 and 1.85, respectively.

The accounts are still early days, but there is another encouraging fact. It’s just that Portugal already have three of the four teams with six points and good prospects of qualifying for the next stages, which will allow you to rack up bonus points.

If, a week ago, Portugal was the country with the most points obtained this season, this distinction has already passed to Spain, currently runners-up, who have won four victories among the seven teams they have. in European competitions.

Note that this ranking is only relevant for 2024/25 accounts. In 2023/24, it is already certain that Portugal retain all three teams in the Champions League and six teams with access to Europe, a result of the classification at the end of last season.
